Hi, I am getting ready to re-do my 3 year old daughters room, there is slight mold on the wall corners,how do I get rid of, should I wash the walls before I paint? What kind of paint do I buy for a kids room (fingerprints, crayon, etc.)and does the chalkboard paint work, and do I put it on the wall before or after I paint? Whew! I am out of breath. Can you tell I dont have a clue at all?

Wash the mold with a diluted solution of bleach. Let dry before continuing. Then prime with a primer that has a mildewcide.

Why is there mold growing there? Is there a leak? Fish tank nearby? Mold grows on humid (wet) spots and will return if the moisture is not removed.

Avoid all flat paints. The higher the gloss, the easier to clean. Get the paint from a paint store, not a department store or discount store.

Any of the teflon paints should work well. Sherwin-Williams has a 'ceramic' paint that has worked very well in our kitchen. I believe Benjamin Moore has a good 'kids room' paint.
