It's Bedroom Makeover Time with Disney Paint *Sponsored*
As much as I love CC's bedroom, I also know it could use a fun makeover. We've added a lot of furniture over the three-plus years that we've been here, but her walls are still painfully, uninspiringly white.
That's where Disney Paint from Glidden comes in!
Available only at Walmart, the themed paint colors (Disney Princesses, Disney Fairies, Mickey Mouse, Cars, etc.) in 112 exclusive shades such as Enchanted Violet and A Wave of the Wand, pair with other creative offerings in the Disney Paint line, including finishes that add glitter, slate/chalkboard and glow-in-the-dark extras.
Needless to say, CC and I were all in when I joined Disney Paint on this fun project. I mean, what little girl wouldn't love to pick her favorite color to paint her room? Adding a glittery finish was a special bonus.
Our closest Walmart is in Torrance, which is where we headed last weekend. Disney Paint definitely has a starring role in the store's paint section. We made a beeline for those Mickey Mouse ears and discovered a fun, child-friendly (and helpful!) display that featured not only the color swatches but also small brochures that provided examples of how each of the 5 finishes would look in a child's room.
While I was sure CC would pick some version of pink, she surprised me when she chose a lighter periwinkle shade. As I mentioned, we're opting for glitter, so I can't wait to see just how sparkly her bedroom will be. (Stay tuned for that upcoming post!)
It was funny watching the 20something paint-section employee asking CC all about how she would paint her room. He also made sure she approved of the color once it was mixed. Nice!
Price-wise, the paint and finish are very reasonable, at less than $30 each. What's also great about the paint, I learned, is that it's low odor and has no VOCs. It's also a premium-quality, ultra-durable paint that can withstand common wear and tear, including scuffs, crayon and pencil marks, and stains (grape juice even!) that wash off without taking any of the color with it. The color spectrum was also designed to appeal to kids, from infancy through the tween years. (We might need another color after CC's little kid phase!)
And if your child wants Disney bedding and accessories, the paint coordinates with those colors as well.
So basically, we're very excited to get started. Stay tuned for an upcoming post, sharing how everything went painting-wise. Ian has been the painter in the family, but I want to try it out myself. CC, too, if she wants! Luckily, Disney Paint also offers videos and tips.
And we'll see how we can turn boring old white into something glittery and magical.
