How to Makeover Your Child’s Room for Under $75

by Jennifer Sikora

Jennifer here, to share with you about the coolest new Disney paints on the market. While we were compensated to write this post, all opinions remain our own.

We have been living in our new home now since May. This house that we rented was a home that had been foreclosed and no work had been done to it, so we have really had to work hard to make it our own.

My daughter’s favorite color is lime green, and every single bedroom she has had, she has always painted it that color. The day she stepped foot in her new bedroom, she knew something had to be done. From top to bottom, floor to ceiling, including light fixtures, window sills, doorknobs — everything was painted this deep purple color.

Can you imagine having a room this color? We were both in shock and knew it was going to take an act of congress to get it to the color and look she wanted, but we were up for the challenge. Because it was such a tedious job, I have been putting it off — until we were contacted and asked if we wanted to makeover a room in our home for under $75 with the new Disney paints. Of course, we said YES!

We went to our local Wal-mart and checked out all the colors and styles available. We finally settled on the color palette of her choice — in the green section and went with the Disney LOL green.

I have always been a huge fan of Glidden paints. They do such a great job covering old colors on the walls — and the Disney paint did not disappoint. We went from a very deep purple and dark bedroom, to an amazing Disney green — full of life and laughter for my daughter.

We love the outcome! The price was very affordable and within our budget. In fact, later, we are going to go back and get a new product that they just introduced — the sparkle overlay paint.

The topcoat is a glitter topcoat that goes on as a clear overlay. My daughter and I both love sparkles and she is working on creating a superhero wall — so we are going to sparkle it up with the new glitter overlay.
