Tuesday Production 2

Yesterday, I cleaned off the bookshelf in my son's room. I also touched up his ceiling with paint. I don't know how or why boys put 'stuff' on their ceilings, none of which could be washed off.

When I stopped at Home Depot yesterday morning to get the ceiling paint, I checked the OOPS paint section, as I always do. I figure, for $5 a gallon, if the color is even close to something I'd been considering, I'll snap it up. I'd been looking for a sort of spa-greenish color for the bathroom, and there on the OOPS shelf at H.D. was a color very close to it.

I was so excited when I got home, that once I finished the ceiling touch up, I got right into the bathroom and started painting. It's much darker than what I wanted, but it kind of has a vintage-y feel to it. Close to an avocado green. I like it enough - and for $5!!! When you use less than a half gallon of paint, it doesn't pay to spend $25 for a gallon. My philosophy.

I have to state here, though, that I can't stand Behr paint. The paint that I got yesterday, is Behr, but I can't stand to paint with it. It's like painting with pudding, YUCK! Oh, well, again only $5. So this morning, I'll be finishing the bathroom paint project, along with the loads of laundry, in between.

Checking projects off the list. So happy :)

Blessings to you!


  1. I love Oops paint...I have painted many rooms with oops paint. I always go by the oops paint to check out to see if
    there are colors I like. It is amazing to see what all you can for very little money...the creative side of not having a big budget...which is great.
    Love the picture in the bathroom...I have one
    like that of my mother-in-law...she is now 95
    Have a good week,

  2. Janette - that picture hung in my grandmother's entry way for as long as I can remember. It sort of 'haunted' me when I was young, but it brings wonderful memories. I also have the "Grace" print in my dining area. Are you familiar with that one? It's the 'old' man sitting at the table praying over his food. This one came from my grandfather's home.

    Blessings to you!
