Cardboard house decorated with white adhesive tape
It is important to think about windows: a large square or a few small squares to ventilate the space. If you have chosen to decorate your cabin or house with paint, this is a great idea. You can leave this task to your children and occupy them for two hours. But be careful: choose paint made from natural ingredients and avoid any toxic product that can be dangerous for your health. It is important to carefully read the components of the chosen paint. Paint for the exterior of the house may not be suitable for interior walls. There are more and more “organic” paints and even if their price remains high, do not hesitate to invest in a good quality product. Choose the most natural paint possible.
