For the final reveal of the boys’ room I had some girlfriends over with their kids. While us ladies got “wrapped” with It Works, the boys had fun playing & running around together. They also enjoyed some fun with dry ice! Drinks & snacks were also served during this time.
Just to recap, MomTrends offered me the chance to work with Glidden Paint who has partnered with Disney Paint and Walmart to get the boys’ room turned into a magical Disney Cars room. My task was to paint one wall in their room in the Cars theme and I decided to go with a race track.
The room started out with a pretty large area that was bare on the wall. That’s where I decided to paint. Walmart also carries the wall stickers in most of the Disney themes, so that gave me the idea to make a race track.
I decided to free-hand paint the track, I didn’t use painter’s tape because I don’t think it would have helped. Once I outlined the track, I used a small roller to paint the track. I used 2 coats. After I used the Metallic Silver specialty paint to create the track, I then used black paint to outline the track, then yellow paint topped with the Ready Set Glow specialty paint on the track.
I also decided to paint their Armoire black & used the Metallic Silver specialty paint to accent it with, as well as using some of the wall stickers on it. I love how this plus the new Cars bedding set from Walmart tied it all together!
There are so many incredible specialty finishes. All that Glitters (an all over sparkly glitter topcoat), Speck-tacular (an iridescent confetti topcoat), Ready Set Glow (glow in the dark glaze), Great Slate (tintable chalkboard paint) and Magnificent Metallic (24 metallic sheen paints). If I had a girl, I’d be all over the glitter paint!!!
One thing that can be helpful is browsing DisneyPaint.com. You can use the virtual room painter to preview paint colors and even watch how to videos. You can even browse room ideas and set up a printable paint plan that can include your paint colors, finishes, templates you used, other supplies you’ll need, plus step-by-step instructions on how to use it all!
A couple of the kids thought the room looked cool & wished that they could have a Disney room. I told them to let their moms know they could get lots of great colors & themes at Walmart! One of the moms was surprised that I had free hand painted the race track. Honestly, I’m not the most artistic person & I was even surprised at how well it turned out.
