In between all my travel last month, I barely had enough time to finish my son’s new Buzz Lightyear themed bedroom. If you remember, I was working on using some new Glidden Disney Paint I found at Walmart and hand painting a new mural above his bed. I did some research and found some pictures of Buzz I liked online and purchased the supplies I needed along with supplies for a special unveiling party.

After a total of about 15 hours spread over long, late nights I managed to finish just moments before we were scheduled to have the party. The night before, Whistler and I stayed up to make some cute Toy Story Alien Favor Bags for the kids as well as some photo props. The bags turned out really great, don’t you think?

We invited over 13 adults and 3 kids to join us in a BBQ to celebrate the occasion. Ben made his famous ribs and we set up the always popular bounce house for the kids to enjoy so the adults could have a little “me” time. To throw an extra fun twist into the evening, using the props we made, the best photo of the night won a $50 Walmart Gift Card!

But overall, everyone had a blast!buzz lightyear themed bedroom 3

Whistler was so excited to show off his new walls along with the new Buzz and Woody Comforter we received to complete the look. He made it a point to show everyone how the lights on the ends of Buzz’s wings, his laser and the stars all glowed in the dark and everyone oo’d and ah’d while he had the biggest smile on his face. It was in that moment that all the hard work really paid off!

I’m so glad that Glidden and Walmart had the perfect supplies I needed to make this transformation. What do you think of how it came out?

    Love the alien favor bags.. they came out so cute! Toy Story is probably our favorite Disney movie.. our twins (now 15) adored Woody and Buzz when they were small. Cute room!

    Umm, can my bedroom be next?! Okay not mine, but atleast my daughters. I’m thinking the glitter paint though, we like a little sparkle.

    Are you available now to travel and paint Disney characters on walls? We’d like a Mater and a Merida please. You definitely win the cool Mom award.

    That’s amazing!! So fun :) We’re planning to make over Abby’s playroom soon – and I’ve been eyeballing all of the fun Disney paints. I just can’t quite make up my mind on which ones to get yet… I’m leaning towards some of the princessy glitter ones!
