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!

Bubby’s Getting a Disney Makeover!

Well his room is anyway. We moved in to our new pad back in February and I’ve yet to make it a home. We love our house, but it just doesn’t have a lot of flair yet. I’ve done a few small projects here and there but not enough. I’ve been busy. 


Poor Bubby stays here all day, every day, with me while I work and he’s a good boy. Sure, he whines a bunch and he’s spoiled rotten (whose fault is that?) but he’s a good boy. He deserves a cool room. 

His room is anything but cool. It’s so boring. Bland walls. No decorations. Nothing that shines like he does. The possibilities are endless. To infinity and beyond in fact. I see the stars and planets aligning here. He needs something intergalactic. Something exciting. A room he can be proud of. A room he can feel comfortable sleeping in and one that feels inviting to his friends. 

AND let’s just put this out there. Bubby is “agrabe” of the dark. Look, I’m afraid of the dark too. It’s all good and I found a solution. We can make his room fun, intergalactic, and not so spooky in the dark. Ready, Set, Glow! 

Enter Glidden Disney Paints. They have the coolest new line of paints available exclusively at Walmart! The Disney specialty finishes include All That Glitters, Great Slate, Magnificent Metallic, Speck-Tacular, and the paint my Bubby decided on which is Ready, Set, Glow! I found them at my local Walmart and I can’t wait to get started on Bubby’s room. 


Disney Paint by Glidden offers 112 exclusive colors and five finishes. This paint is premium quality, ultra durable, and has your kid in mind. Repeated washes are not only tolerated, they are encouraged. This paint can handle it! The paint is low odor and has no VOCs. They have a distinct group of colors that will not only satisfy children of all ages, but will compliment any Disney theme your little one might have in mind. My little one was digging Buzz Lightyear and glow in the dark. See? They aim to please!

The shopping trip wasn’t the best experience of my life. The Walmart associates weren’t “in the know” about the latest Glidden Disney paints. It wasn’t their fault. Although the paint section is pretty massive at Walmart, and I actually brought the sunshine in to the babies’ room at our old house with another Glidden paint from Walmart, this particular product is new. Some training issues need to be addressed in store for sure. 

After 3 stores and quite a few conversations, I think we have all of the paint and supplies we’ll need to get Bubby out of the dark. I love this kid and I’d do anything to make him happy! And I really love the theme and colors he picked out. I can’t wait to see his room glow!

I’m so excited that Bubby picked Buzz Lightyear for his theme. This is going to be so cool! And for the record, yes, Bubby did get to bring this Buzz Lightyear home with us. What Bubby wants, Bubby gets. 

Stay tuned. This makeover will happen over the next month or two. I’ll be back with updates and the big reveal. We can’t have Bubby being “agrabe” of the dark anymore, now can we?
