Sometimes, children have a hard time falling asleep, but not all are as lucky as this little guy…
When a child first moves into their own bedroom, it can be a little scary. Occasionally, things go bump in the night, sometimes shadows seem like monsters, and other times they plain old just can’t sleep. This lucky boy got the perfect solution- an extraordinary painting that might make him never want to leave!
Crispin Young Wilson has a passion for painting. He does it alongside his job as a server hardware repairer. One day, a close friend asked for her to use her spectacular talents and paint his son’s bedroom.
“[My friend] has a little boy who refuses to sleep in his own room,” Crispin told BuzzFeed. “When my friend got his new place, he wanted me to come over and paint the room, hoping it will entice his son to sleep in it.”
Crispin decided that the best way to go about solving his problem is by using paint that glows-in-the-dark, so it is only visible when the lights are off at night. She then created a magnificent starscape sure to shock anyone who walked in!
“I use a huge mix of different paint products, and fortunately they all react to a black light, so I just need to have a dark room and a few power outlets, not to mention some drop cloths, a sturdy ladder, and good music,” she told Buzzfeed News. The end-result was amazing!
Even cooler, during the day when the room is lit, you would never know that the painting is there- it completely vanishes!
When little Benjamin entered his room, he threw a tantrum thinking that nothing had changed. But when the lights turned off…
“Ben sounds very proud. I think he will love his new room, and it makes me so happy to help make his transition to the new home a little easier and more enjoyable,” Crispin said.
The glorious painting had quickly become viral, with over 41k retweets spreading through Twitter like wildfire! Crispin enjoyed the benefits after people throughout Oregon began requesting their rooms to be painted as well.
“It’s a little surreal, but I’m just so touched at how positive it’s been,” she stated. “I’m definitely hoping to keep doing this and keep getting better at it.”
Ben is a happy camper after getting his newly-painted room. Many children have difficulties moving into a new room or home and adjusting to the strangeness of it all. Luckily there are things parents can do to help make their adjustment quick and happy!
My friend’s 4 year old has no idea that I did this to his room (paint is invisible in day light). Best way to spend a Saturday 🎨🎨pic.twitter.com/tHRtIeYjyE
