Lover of OOPS paint!

I love oops paint! You know the paint that gets mixed and isn't the right color, or the person who brings back a can and says it doesn't match the gallon from before. I love it! You can get a gallon can for 5.00 and a quart for as low at 1.00. I got these Ralph Lauren colors for 1.00 a can at Home Depot!! And the little jars were on .25cents,, great for crafting.

If you never dropped by the oops paint shelf, do yourself a favor and check it out! Have a great day everyone and this is my 99th post...what will I do for the 100th?? Not sure yet, but check back and find out!

Seems I should check out the paint at Home Depot more often. I am going to check out my booth at the Antique Mall tomorrow, and then it's off to the auction. I am bringing my camera, so I will have something to show off. Hugs, Kath

Thank you for your comment on my blog, nice to hear from you :)

I am enjoying reading yours too.....I would SO like to visit Maine but will have to live vicariously via you for some time I think!

I loved your "favourite movies" post.....I was just in Florence a few days ago and yes, it was gorgeous, even more beautiful than I remembered....sunset over the Duomo and the city was breathtaking......and as for Clive.....would it make you feel good to know that he lives very close to me, I've seen him many a time in Starbucks and just the other week, I saw him in my local woods jogging towards me....Raybans and all, I almost froze!!!! He's even hotter in real life, in my humble opinion.....feeling better or do you hate me??!!
Happy Saturday :)

Simone said...

Great idea! I'm going to be having my bedroom and office painted so I'll stop by there first. Love to save money whenever and where ever I can!

Good for you for still losing your weight! I'm proud of you. I hope I can do it just like you! Go for my 2nd weigh in on Monday and I'm actually looking forward to it.

Hugs,
Joanne

Love the oops paint too:) I can't believe it's your 99th already - thanks for such a sweet comment on my blog - we love our Airedale Terrier - he's an awesome companion, great watchdog from the outside, loveable clown on the inside! He's so fun to be with and doesn't shed at all - my husband is very allergic and if you are too this is a good breed to have. He's just over 60 pounds, so there's a lot to love here:) Good luck to you!

What beautiful colours on the lids, I really like the salomish-blush pink on that Ralph Laureen one.

How neat that your 100th post is next, I'm in the 90s myself and will hitting that very cool blogging milestone soon as well :)

Wishing you a wonderfully lovely weekend!
♥ Jessica

One of my friends did her entire house with oops paint! Her sister came from out of state to help her get everything together...they mixed lots of cans to make their own colors. Everything was totally stunning! What a great buy.

Blessings,
Spencer
