Overview

The irrepressible Sunny Goode explores how decorative painting can work for children’s rooms—with happy results that will delight any kid. She’s created imaginative, fun rooms for little babies, for playing and growing in (ages 4–8), and for thinking and dreaming (designed for 9–12 year-olds). These are bright, safe, and personal spaces of color and lightness. Goode shows how to embellish a nursery with marching elephants or cheerful dots, wrap a girl’s room in bands of vivid color, and create a “creature feature” pattern with blue alligators. An introduction discusses paint basics, and illustrated “You Can Do It!” sections interspersed throughout present important techniques.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

In Goode's previous book, Paint Can , she showed how paint and decorative techniques can be used to spruce up walls and floors. Here, the focus is on children's rooms, for infants up to 12 year olds. She begins with a review of supplies and equipment needed as well as prep advice followed by projects in close to 30 rooms. Color photographs show how to apply the various paint techniques-color washing, striping, stenciling, freehand painting-with clearly written and well-illustrated instructions that will be especially helpful for amateurs. Recommended for large public libraries.
