Let’s face it — most kids would rather watch Nick Jr. or the Disney Channel instead of HGTV or DIY Network. If you want to pass along your love for all things “DIY” to your children and banish summer boredom at the same time, get your kids involved in a fun project that they will enjoy for many seasons to come. Here are four cool wall treatments for a kids’ TV room.
Glass Backsplash Tile
What’s your favorite color? It’s a simple question that is so important to kids. The RTA Store offers a cool variety of glass backsplash tile colors, including Mint Green, Caramel, Ruby Red, Baby Blue, and Teal, so you’re bound to find a favorite in the mix that everyone in the family can agree on. Glass backsplash tile is a fairly straightforward and affordable DIY project, it’s easy to keep clean, and best of all; it looks really cool when used unconventionally as an accent wall in a TV room or playroom.
Did you know you could make your own chalkboard paint? This ultimate DIY project is perfect for kids. Just throw down some drop cloths to protect your flooring and TV room cabinetry, gather the kids and a few paintbrushes, and prepare to get messy! Kids can also help with taping off baseboards and trim. Having a chalkboard wall in your home allows your kids to express their creativity, practice their spelling words, and draw on the walls! No doubt, you’ll be the coolest parents on the block.
Dry Erase Paint
Not a fan of chalk? Dry erase paint, also known as whiteboard paint, is a great alternative wall treatment in a playroom. It offers the same fun and functionality as a chalkboard wall without all the chalk dust. Plus, it comes in a variety of colors. For this job, paint rollers ensure a smooth finish for drawing and writing. You’ll also need to do a little extra prep work and allow enough time for the paint to cure.

Wallpaper is the perfect wall treatment for placing behind TV Room Cabinetry. For a kids’ hangout, pick a bold and bright contemporary pattern. Avoid specific themes that won’t grow with your kids, unless you know for sure they are still going to love dinosaurs a few years from now. Wallpaper is fairly simple to hang, and some peel and stick varieties are even easy to remove down the road.
