Sooo I spilled paint all over myself & the house & everywhere. | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Sooo I spilled paint all over myself & the house & everywhere.

So one of my many talents is making big messes. On accident of course.. I know, you're probably very jealous of me rn. The other day I was finishing up a sign for a friend, I had my gym clothes on and my stuff by the door and i was ready to go after I was done. I picked up the paint can and shook it to get it all mixed up and apparently I hadn't screwed it on tight the last time I used it because paint suddenly exploded everywhere and coated me and all of my surroundings in black paint.

 I literally just sat there wondering what I should do and how I would clean up without making an even bigger mess. Also sat there wondering when Ashton was gonna show up and tell me I was being Punk'd. (ps he didn't come) I got up and ran to the bathroom as black footprints marked my trail and began to wash my hands off. Good thing I left my extensions by the sink because black paint started splashing on them. but if I touched them to move them I would get paint on them from my hands. And I had to stand still so the paint would just drop off me in one spot. It was AWESOME. After forever my hands were clean enough to wash out my extensions and wash off my feet so I could actually move around. OH PS I HAD TO MOVE FAST BEFORE THE PAINT DRIED. so fun. cause when paint dries on wood and tile it doesn't like coming up very easy. cool fact, right? 

me at this point:


I peeled off my clothes really slowly because I wanted to get them in the washer stat and I probs said like 204832589 prayers that my tank wouldn't get paint all over my BLONDE hair. ps my prayers were answered. then it was a mad dash for the kitchen for paper towels and a scrub sponge. I scrubbed and scrubbed as the paint dried to my skin (ps i had work in less than an hour. pps I decided cleaning the tile and wood was more important to do first bc #renting) so yeah. oh and some black paint splashed on the sign i was finishing. OH AND my friend was coming by at 2 to pick it up.  *insert like a million crying emojis* blah blah blah sob story and cleaning words here. I finally finished cleaning up like a hundred gallons of paint (aka a a pint) and took a quick picture (for the kids.you know my future kids will love this) and hopped into the shower which in fact did turn black. and remind me to buy a new luffa because mine  is now filled with black speckles.



this was after I put on clean clothes pre shower and post washing off my arms, hands, feet, and calves. obvi. And the lack of smile is due to the fact that I was covered in paint. and don't worry my stomach and shoulder were also black. :))))))) 
so there ya go, happy Thursday!

  1. Oh no! I have carpet in my apartment, so in my head I was thinking you had to clean it out of carpet! At least it could've been worse?

  7. Hahahahaha I just laughed out loud! This is totally something that would happen to me! I spilled paint in my classroom one time and it was a mess to clean up. But I can't imagine doing it in a house that I rent. I would have DIED!

  10. The good news is the paint will fade eventually :) When I painted our door, I had splashed paint all over my pants and they are still stained three years later.

  11. This actually happened to us. TWICE! The first time my cat spilled my calligraphy ink (black) on our white carpet. Quite a nice stain. And then we went to paint the guest room and our ladder caught on some paint.. I didn't notice until I moved it like four times.. We have a nice trail of blue on the (again white) carpet. oh, dear. I can laugh about it now. Until time comes to replace it and I have to spend all my money ¬¬

  21. I saw a picture on your business instagram and I was totally thinking.."wow she does that painting on the carpet?" haha. Sometimes I will take the cap off of a drink or something and then go to shake it, and spill all over the kitchen. I know that's totally a different story..paint is...well, PAINT! And black no doubt lol. Hopefully everything is okay :)

    1. hahah well we do have carpet upstairs but it's like this old carpet rug that we put down in the room so if I spill on that, it isn't as bad because it's just an ugly old carpet rug! But it would suck to spill a ton on it because then we'd probably want to get rid of it for good. gahhhh you get me though!! haha I do that, too! like unscrew something and then move it really fast and there it goes all over the floor. #talent
