As you all know my husband and I just purchased this home last month. We have slowly been working on some repairs . Ace Hardware provided us with 2 gallons of Clark+Kensington  paint to help with some of our remodeling.  My daughter wanted a paint color to match her bedspread. Clark+ Kensington has so many beautiful colors to pick from. Madison wanted a teal color but finding the perfect match wasn’t something I was 100% sure we would be able to accomplish.

We picked out a color called Green Lake


This color is absolutely beautiful on the wall.  Madison had some quality time painting with her dad before we moved in the house.

Once the paint dried the walls looked great. As long as Madison was happy we were happy.

Our next project was Madison’s bathroom. The people that lived in the house before we did was in process of redoing the bathroom to make it handicap accessible. The bathroom was not completed which has left us with some repairs.


This is the bathroom which was not completed. The previous owners removed shower/ tub and replaced with a larger shower stall. The stall needed a new door.  The walls needed fresh paint. We picked out the Belgian Waffle color for the bathroom.

I have always liked neutral colors. I want to go really bold with some of the other rooms in the house eventually.


The lighting in the bathroom is not great , the color is not as dark as the picture shows. We still have a little bit more work to accomplish in the bathroom before we can say it has been completed . Luckily the painting is completed. I had to purchase the cabinet to hold towels because there was not cabinet in this bathroom.

Are you remodeling any rooms in your house? What tips and tricks do you have to share? I have found several great deals on some local for sale groups for bar stools, kitchen table , and fencing for my dogs. The fence is going up this weekend. I know my furbabies will be happy.
