When my boys were small and decorating dollars a bit scarce, I painted an enormous rainbow from one side of their bedroom to the other.
I was inspired by a graphic wallpaper that used the word ' rainbow ' in the colors of the rainbow. I used this on the shorter walls. I had the large rainbow colors mixed at the paint store, using a sample of the wallpaper.
I painted the double closet doors blue with a large sunburst.
My husband made simple beds and I used thrift shop dressers.
The kids loved their happy space.
Interestingly, when we sold the house, the new childless owners used the room as a guest room and were all set to get rid of the rainbow theme. They told us that so many of their visitors begged them to leave it all in place! I think they kept it!
