Painting with Glidden Disney Paint {Sponsored}

I vividly remember my own childhood bedroom makeover.  My mother let me pick out wallpaper (which she applied herself), and she also purchased fabric to sew coordinating bedding.  As a little girl, I was allowed to take ownership of the project, and what I remember most is the special feeling it gave me.

As the days have continued to slip into weeks (and years!) over here (as they often do in early childhood) my plans to update Lucia and Adrian’s shared bedroom has been a goal that constantly got pushed back.  I’ve been thrilled to have the chance to paint their space to reflect a bit more of my boy’s interests as a Disney Paint Mom thanks to Mom Trends.

Adrian is turning three-years-old next month and his favorite book is still Papa Please Get The Moon For Me by Eric Carle.  Since Adrian also has a love for Buzz Light Year, I decided to saturate part of the room with painted stars using Glidden‘s Ready, Set, Glow! Disney Specialty Finish from WalmartThe stars were approved by big sister and will give Adrian an intergalactic element incorporating his interests.  Before beginning my project, I perused to get ideas from their how to videos and virtual room planner.  It was a challenge to stay on course as the website gave me so many ideas for Lucia and Adrian’s future rooms.  I eventually created some stencils, printed a lot online and taped a few to the wall with painters tape to begin.  The paint was so easy to apply and virtually orderless.  My kids were so excited every step of the way!

Glidden’s Ready, Set, Glow! Disney Specialty Finish allowed me to maintain the light serene feel that I love so much in the bambini’s bedroom.  The luminous sheen adds a subtle touch during the day, with true magic taking place when the lights are off at night (It is Disney Y’all!)  After the paint is charged by the chandelier for about fifteen minutes, my children now fall asleep amidst glowing stars that gradually diminish in about five minutes time.  I couldn’t be happier to see the littles so thrilled with a fun project that I completed for them.

In addition to painting, I’ll be doing a bit of sewing and re-purposing for my Adrian.  We can’t wait to celebrate his big-boy-hood with a fun party to reveal their new room!

  1. I love the glowing stars! How awesome!

  2. I've been needing to redo my son's room for a couple years now, but have been having such a hard time finding the right paint and colors. I am going to have to check the Disney paint out! I love the idea of the glow in the dark stars!

    • The paint is really so cool. In addition to all of Glidden's Disney Paint colors, they have five specialty finishes. I think that I will end up using all of them in our next home. My daughter is dying for “All That Glitters” on her walls. It was a fun project!

  3. That's awesome! I should seriously do the same thing for my son's room..he LOVES stars!!! By the way, who looks so pretty and put together when painting?!! (I know I don't! lol!).

    • My kids are also drawn to stars and glow in the dark stuff – so it worked out well! Thanks for the compliment, I lucked out with a scarf to conceal the mess underneath!

  4. Paint that glows for a few minutes when the lights go out is an awesome idea for the kids. I bet they do love it! I like hearing about it, I think it's fun.

  5. How wonderful….. I bet you kiddies are so excited about their newly decorated bedroom xx

  6. So great! What a fun project – one your son will love for years to come.

    • Last night he told me that he likes to look in a big mirror on his wall to see the stars reflection. Both kids seem really happy with the room. I'm so glad that I had the chance to participate.

  7. Love the shot of you in action!

    • Thanks for the comment Nicole and thanks so much to Mom Trends for having me participate in this campaign! It really has made my children's room so amazing and the best part is that I did it all myself.

  8. I love the stars Monica! when I read about the make over process a few weeks ago, you actually inspired me to makeover my kids room.

    • Thanks so much for visiting and commenting – so glad to hear that you were inspired to make changes for your little ones too! xx
