I'd like to paint my son's room...what color on which walls?
I hope this is ok to post here...I tried the paint forum...but someone suggested I try here for more input!
We would like to do an overhaul for my 9 year old son's room. He's had some ideas....but I didn't want to do something that he would outgrow in a year....so we finally came to an agreement. We'll use the two colors of his favorite NFL team, of which he has been a diehard fan for years already! As far as decorations to match, he already has more than he knows what to do with, that's for sure...
His bedroom (about 12x12) is located in a corner of our house, so there are two windows... at first I had considered alternating walls of each color...then I had considered having the two walls with windows one color, and the other two another. Or, just having all the walls one color...and perhaps painting some of the furniture in there (shelves, etc) the other color. What would you suggest? It's sure hard for me to picture without seeing it....and I just don't know how much would be TOO much, you know?
(We are in WI, and are Packer fans....so green and gold are the colors...)
I saw that Home Depot/Glidden Paints sells NFL colors...so I'm going to go check that out! Although a friend of mine, who's painted two houses, and repainted, suggested I stay away from Glidden and go with Behr (or Beihr?) This is a project I plan to start mid-late February...he's having a birthday party, then I'll start making a mess after that's over! I've been thinking further...and now considered too just painting all of the walls gold, with one green accent wall (the wall with the two doors, the entry and closet) I have so many options on where to use these two colors, or just go with one... but just not sure which one I want to go with.
I would really love some opinions....we know we're doing a Green Bay Packer theme. And he's very excited at the thought of painting his room.... I'm just not sure what to do. All one color? Alternating colors on walls? One accent wall? Hmmm...
I found a couple of lockers on Craigslist....4' tall, smaller than your typical school locker, but perfect bedroom size...and perfect for the theme...for cheap, and he loves them. We'll just need to paint them to match!
Thanks for any input!
