This amazing children’s bedroom makeover is definitely making all the other children on their road jealous – and it was completed using leftover paint in Bradford!

One lucky child has had their bedroom transformed into a colourful wonderland, featuring rainbows, love hearts, dinosaurs and an impressive looking unicorn.

The paint used is from Community RePaint Bradford, which is one of the largest schemes in the Community RePaint Network. They collect paint from manufacturers, retailers and traders in the area, as well as from the district’s recycling centres where residents can drop off leftover paint.Β  The paint is then checked to ensure it is suitable for reuse rather than disposed of. Since signing up to the Community RePaint Network in 2001, Community RePaint Bradford has collected over 45,000 litres of paint each year.

Due to the large amount of paint the scheme collects, they always have a large variety of paint types and colours. If you need paint for your home or for a community project, you can make an appointment to choose some paint. Community RePaint Bradford sell paint for Β£1.50 per litre. You can find all of the details for the schemeΒ here.
