Damn

I sat this paint up on a chair with excitement to show my husband, and before I knew it…It hit the ground and paint went everywhere. This is our movie room so I wanted black, but not on the floor. DAMN! We had someone come out last week to give us a quote on flooring. We did not plan on starting with this room, but I guess it will now have to be first now.

DSC_0834 DSC_0835On the flip side…Home Depot is discontinuing Ralph Lauren paint and replacing it with Martha Stewart which I am not happy about. All the paint is discounted. Gallons are $13 and Quarts are $6

Now is the time to stock up on paint. You cant beat that price for anything. $13 for a gallon is sick and we know this paint is the bomb. I need to start gathering colors I want, and buy up for future projects…As I replace my black.

XOXOXO,

TamStyles

OMG!..My heart aches for you!

L.Duncan@home23duncanboys said...

This reminds me of my family room! A hot mess!!! My boys knocked over a can of paint while I was gone and my husband tried to "scoop" it up into the can....

Thanks for the tip on the paint at HD

Damn! When I was painting my little girl's room I spilled half a gallon of hot pink paint on the floor. To get it up I scraped out all the wet stuff and put dishing washing liquid on what was left. This includes the hardened paint. I then laid a wet rag on top and let it sit about 5 minutes. Afterwards I got a bucket of soapy warm water and washed the rest out. I can actually say it came out! You should try it.
And I need like 3 different color paints, so heading to Home Depot today. Thanx for the tip.

Well TAM, I am with you! I can't believe that they "think" martha stewart is better! Are they "shitn" us! apparently. I am going to HomeDepot later to get my fair share! We need to boycott MS. I don't think she should replace ole Ralph- Meanwhile Let's rack up

LuLu said...

Awe! Bless your heart! I hope you are able to replace the black and stock up -- thanks for the tip!!

Joi said...

Dang. At least it was old flooring and you wanted to replace it! : )

Dallas Decorum said...

oooo...it actually looks kinda graphic - Jackson Pollack inspired? - how about just splattering the rest of the floor with black paint...? I am sure it would be a conversation piece to say the least!

T-Charry said...

looooove the new blog look girl!

Mrs. Limestone said...

Oh no! My heart sunk when I saw this. I feel your pain, I spilled a can of paint on the sidewalk when I was a kid and that stain is still there!!

Symone's Mommy said...

I am going to buy some paint tomorrow. Too bad about the floor, but i know you'll hook it up.

Brooke said...

Ok Tam, went to home depot and learned that most of martha's mess will be in there. when i walked in the front door, the first thing you see is marthc cleaning supplies and air freshners! bummer. the Ralph Lauren paint was scarce! I did get a few needed cans and was ghost. I will say buy Fri-it will all be LONG GONE! and they had OOOPS paint for $3.bucks per gallon!(hope you were able to clean that floor)

Oh dear! I've ruined a carpet before the same way, when it happens you're like WOW did I really just do that?!
