Disney Inspired Room Makeover

I’m thrilled to be working with Glidden to give my four year old a Disney Inspired room makeover with the new Disney paint line.  The new Disney line offers specialty finishes to give your room the accents you want at a price you can afford.

My son decided he wanted a Toy Story room and his father and I have been brainstorming different ideas we can do with his room.  We’ve come up with a few really good ideas (if I do say so myself) and I will reveal them all in the final post for this campaign.  But I am going to give you just a little sneak peek of what you can expect for the final reveal.

The exclusive Disney paint colors and finishes are available at Walmart.  The specialty finishes include All That Glitters, Speck-tacular, Ready, Set, Glow!, Magnificent Metallic and Great Slate.  We are using the Great Slate finish which will turn any wall into a chalkboard with just a couple coats of paint.  In addition to the traditional black chalkboard, this specialty paint is also available in a tintable base for other exclusive Disney colors.

Instead of painting a whole wall, we decided to only paint the bottom third of the wall with the chalkboard paint since that was pretty much all the little guy could reach anyway.  We chose a color that coordinated nicely with his Toy Story bedding and also with the neutral color we already had on his walls.

My painting tape didn’t work as well as I wanted it to so we will be adding a chair rail to cover up the areas where the paint bled through.  I love the look of the two browns together.

I don’t particularity care too much for painting, but painting was the easiest task for this project.  The paint goes on the wall smooth and covers very well.  I would have felt comfortable with just one coat, but did two since that is what the directions called for.

We found some old picture frames in the attic and have a really fun idea for these.  We’ve already painted them red and they will adorn the walls.  Can you guess what we are doing with them?

My husband and I have had a really fun time working together on this project for our little guy.  Even though this is his first room makeover, he is pretty much handing over the reigns and letting us do what we want…although he has had to put his foot down a time or two when he didn’t like an idea we had.

I can’t wait to show you his finished room.  We wanted to give him a room he would love but something that wasn’t too childish and that could grow with him.  I think we’ve done that but you’ll be the final judge.  Stay tuned for my last update on this project.

    Looks great! Was it hard to do the line? I’m not concerned with paint bleeding but just getting it straight. I want to do stripes with the princess theme with my disney paint.

      I just used a level and tape measure and taped along the line I had drawn. That was the most time consuming of the project. It was pretty pointless now though since the tape didn’t do the job right. I have to use a chair rail now.

    I can’t wait to see the finished room!!

    Fun! I wanted to take this opp too, but we don’t have a room to makeover. Can’t wait to see the finished result!

    The room is gonna be cool! I love Toy Story, and I love red, yellow, and brown together!

    The two tone brown looks really nice

    I love that shade of brown.

    Instead of a chair rail have you thought about using a jute rope? Seems like it’d really add to the theme and should be cheap. Shoot a nail through it every few feet to hold it up.

    I can’t wait to see the final project!

    looks like a cute project.

    I am looking forward to seeing the finished room. It will be a lot of work but well worth it.

    Oh fun! We had a magnetic paint wall in our kitchen in our last home – I loved it! Theme room for kids are so much fun. If my daughter was little again, I’d love to do a Tinkerbell one for her.

    You don’t like paint? Other than wallpaper, what would you use? I am ALL about paint because I’ve stripped more wallpaper in my life than anyone should ever have to strip.

    I can’t wait to see the finished product. I love makeovers.

    I love that you are painting the walls with chalkboard paint and cannot wait to see the finished room!

    What an interactive feature! I’m excited to see the results.

  19. 23

    Love Toy Story. Great choice.

    It looks great so far. We did a similar brown in our living room. I can’t wait to see it when it’s done!

  22. 26

    Love the color

  23. 27

    Aww so fun! Can’t wait to see the final pictures!

  24. 28

    Can’t wait to see how everything turns out!

  25. 29

    I can’t wait to see the rest! I don’t the the bleed through looks that bad, or even that noticeable, but you can obviously judge better in person. I did a glitter wall (via our chosen theme), but I decided to use the great slate paint too because it was too fun to pass up…can’t wait to reveal it all, and see everyone else’s too!

    Love this! I am going to be tackling all of our rooms soon …. and, yeah … DREADING the painting!

  27. 31

    Can’t wait for the ta-da moment.
