Blackboard paint makeover

09 Jul 2015

It's a familiar sight – the garage turned into a storage space, spilling with hardware boxes, the spare mattress and things that need fixing.

But in this week's Resene My Dream Bedroom: Kids Edition, nine-year-old Grace from Auckland had other plans for the family's underused garage space.  

Her dream was a playroom for her and her two sisters, all incredibly artistic, to practice their singing, dancing and drawing. Using Resene Blackboard Paint for the stage background wall, the girls are now able to create their own settings to perform against. Grace also had the ingenious idea to turn the stage into a bed for when her grandparents come to stay.

Host Mel Homer shared a great fun way to recycle old glass jars for great storage options for those knick knacks, keeping the new place neat and tidy. Check out this step-by-step guide for all the details on how you can make these at home. 

Resene My Dream Room: Kids Edition airs every Tuesday, 7.30pm on Choice TV (Freeview 12 and Sky 026). Watch this week's episode here.
