Painted Treehouse for a child's bedroom measurements

Step one

Decide on your centre point for your Tree/Forest House. This could form an area behind a bed, part of a reading nook or a creative work space.

Its a good idea to sketch out a plan of your wall to avoid getting too close to light sockets, windows or anything else that might get in the way.

Once you've decided on your centre point, mark a point at the top of the skirting board on the base of their wall.

Measure 150cm upwards in a straight line from our base mark and add another mark on the wall. This is the top of our Tree/Forest house.

Step five

With all the anchor marks complete you can now tape the final shape. Keeping the masking tape straight and making sure it sits on the outside of the pencil marks created, start on the left-hand side and work across.

Note: It's best to extend the masking tape beyond the mark, overlapping the tape slightly.

You can now fill your Tree/Forest House with the colour of your choice. The number of coats required and drying time will vary. Please see paint specification for this information.
