Last year we painted all of the walls in our house a nice beige color. We’ve been off and on trying to sell this house so that we can move closer to family so painting the walls of the house a neutral color was something that was top on our priority list.
But the sad thing about painting all of the walls beige is that it’s hard to dress it up to make it girly. We have two very girly girls who would’ve loved to have a completely pink room instead of a beige one.
Well, it has been a year and we aren’t real close to selling the house yet. So why not give them at least a wall of pink?
I had already been thinking about painting a wall in the girls’ room pink to cheer things up a little in there when I was asked to review the Glidden Disney Paints that are new to Walmart stores.
Over the next month I’ll be posting my progress on the room as well as a post about the party that Glidden is sponsoring for my girls to show the new room look to their friends! I think I’ll turn that one into a post on How To Have A Princess Party For Under $100! 🙂
I got on the Glidden Disney Paints website and showed my 5 year old all of the different options that were available and this is the one that she liked the best…
We can’t quite go all out like the photo, but one wall of pink should work well!
The display at Walmart was well set-up and easy to find. There are 112 colors and then five specialty finishes that you can use with those colors. The color palettes should appeal to a wide variety of ages, from little ones up to tweens (there are actually several colors that I would love to paint my room in if only Ryan would go for it). 🙂
In our house, we have to have paint on the walls that can withstand a lot of wear and tear including pencil marks, crayons, stains, finger prints, and pretty much everything else that a child could put on a wall. So it’s nice to know that the Disney Paint was made with families like mine in mind.
I love that the Disney paints are low odor and have no VOCs.
Also, several of the colors are specifically designed to complement Walmart’s Disney bedding and Disney room accessories (which are sold in stores and online).
I’m still not sure exactly what I’m going to be doing with the wall. We decided on these two colors below. The lighter pink for the whole wall and then the metallic color for some kind of extra decoration.
My initial thought was to use the metallic darker pink as stripes on the wall, but I’d love to hear any suggestions from you guys! The wall will need to be something that will appeal to both a 5 year old girl and a 10 year old girl. What do you think – any ideas?
I’m looking forward to sharing the progress with you guys and showing you the finished product!
