Creating a space that encourages open-ended play, this geometric design provides endless possibilities for make-believe.
1. Use a roller to paint the entire wall with two to three coats of Resene Tussock, then allow to dry. Aim to give your design some breathing room by keeping about 20-30cm from each edge shape-free.
2. Create the arch by ruling two 110cm vertical lines about 75cm apart, then connect them at the top by tracing a semi-circle using a pencil attached to a piece of string pinned 110cm from the f loor in the middle of the two lines.
3. Mask out the arch with painter’s tape. To achieve the rounded edge, overlap small pieces of tape bit by bit.
4. Use a roller to paint inside the tape with two to three coats of Resene Zinzan. Once dry, remove the tape.
5. Use the same method to mask out a second semi-circle near the ground, this time slightly wider; ours is 125cm. Repeat step 4 with Resene Ringo.
6. To create the staircase, draw a 75cm horizontal line ¾ of the way up the arch, then add five 15cm steps. Mask with tape; repeat step 4 using Resene Atmosphere.
7. The triangles extending down from the roof are about 30 x 60cm, but go for whatever works in your space. Repeat the process using Resene Rumour Has It. •
