It’s a Disney Paint Makeover in the Making!

I recently told you that Bubby was getting a room makeover. And we’re off to a decent start. He’s so stinking excited. So if he’s excited, I’m excited. I’ve been super duper busy lately but this is important. Like way more important than anything else I’m working on. 

This is what Bubby wants. Have I mentioned that what Bubby wants, Bubby gets? Yea, I have time to makeover his room!

He loves Disney, seriously, who doesn’t? He’s kind of in to a lot of themes right now so deciding on just one wasn’t easy. But when he said he wanted his room “glue” (you know “glue” like his eyes, his shirt, his pants…everything is blue), a light bulb went off. And then, knowing he’s “agrabe” of the dark, I knew what we HAD to do.
Buzz Lightyear! To infinity and beyond…

I had visions of glow in the dark space ships, stars, and planets! I had to get inspired and it seemed like the Disney Paint site was the place to go. I’m going to make his room glow. Apparently it’s pretty easy to get this look with the help of Disney Ready, Set, Glow Specialty Finish Paint!  

This theme fits my island color scheme. I can add island blue to his room (actually Definitely Donald Blue) plus the greens I adore and I can make this thing glow. Since he’s “agrabe” of the dark and all. 

The Disney Glidden Paint color that Bubby selected was dark. I didn’t feel comfortable doing the whole room in a shade that dark so I decided on one accent wall. I started  by taping off the wall he looks at as he sleeps. OK, so I was too short to tape off the top and had to enlist B to finish it off.
Tape finished and ready to paint! I’ve got this!
Supplies ready. Here we glow! I was ready to start my base coat. This would be the canvas for our intergalactic glow in the dark scene.
After taping off the room, as all good kids would do, I painted the border. You know, because it’s so much easier to paint between the lines.

This paint was GREAT! It was actually a one hit wonder or one coat wonder. Whatever! Once I got to rolling, I was impressed. Disney Ultra Durable Paint is made with my kid in mind. It has superior washability which I’m sure Bug will let me test out in no time. But more importantly, to me anyway, I was impressed with the fact that this paint was so thick yet easy to work with. It gave me full wall coverage in just one coat! Plus there was literally no odor. Glidden claims this paint has “virtually no odor” but I swear, there was NO odor. I have a sensitive sniffer and I literally put my nose up to the can (I might or might not have gotten a blob of paint on my nose) because I couldn’t believe it, and I still couldn’t smell anything. 
This is thick, full coverage paint and it’s awesome! And this Definitely Donald, was definitely blue! Just like Bubby likes it. This was panning out very well!

The base coat is finished. As I sit here watching paint dry, literally, I’m working on stencils. Glow in the dark planets, stars, and rocket ships will light up Bubby’s room within the next week. I was so impressed with our base coat, and I can’t wait to get to work using the Disney Ready, Set, Glow Specialty Finish to complete the look.

While I was picking up the paint supplies at Walmart, I found some other fun decorative items for the room to Buzz it up a bit. I’m so excited that I think I’m moving in with Bubby. Or I’m going to do my own room next. I haven’t decided which.

As soon as I’m finished, there will be a big reveal. There will be a party. Oh my glow in the dark stars…even I’m getting excited. 

Bubby keeps asking when his room will be glowing. Soon Bubby, soon!

Stay tuned y’all. The big reveal is on the way. This will be EPIC. I love seeing my Bubby this excited!
