A Little Spilled Paint Is Nothing To Cry Over!



SO. I've been painting furniture to sell now for over 2 1/2 years. In all that time I have managed to avoid spilling a single paint can. I've had the paint brush fly out of my hand a many occasions however.

Then last week, the unthinkable happened. I spilled a quart of paint. Dark paint. In the house. On the carpet. Yep. Good times.

The next day. Spilled another quart of paint. This time outside, thank goodness. A light gray color that isn't so noticeable on the gray concrete. But sheesh, hopefully my clumsiness has run it's course and it will be another 3 years before I do it again!





Wishing you all the Happiest New Year EVER! 
May 2013 have spectacular things in store for us all!

P.S. I managed to walk through a paint drop and polka dotted my carpet today. :)

Happy New Year, Sares! Wishing you lots of beautiful things for 2013!!! Yikes...spilled paint. Yes, let's hope your run of clumsiness is behind you...or at least outdoors! :)

Blessings,
Valerie

Isn't that how it always goes! Hopefully the old adage of things coming in threes doesn't apply.

Happy New Year!!!

Honey I am so sorry! Was your carpet completely ruined. Geez I have spilled so many cans of paint and even stepped in them. You would not want me helping you.

Oh I know...just when we think we have it all in control paint spills and reminds us to eat humble pie, down on our hands and knees to clean it all up please.
I've been there so many times!
Thinking of you as we hunker down for rain and sleet and snow they say...gotta love Washington...ugh!!!
