The past few years, I have been obsessing over navy, but I recently began loving the moody greens. I recently discovered the perfect moody green paint color – Pine Grove by Clark + Kensington.
Clark + Kensington paint can be found at your local Ace Hardware Store (there are over 5,000 stores around the world). I love the small-store feel and personal shopping experience.
Ace have everything you need to tackle that DIY paint project.
The color choices are endless, and I like to go online to The Paint Studio before I step into the store. Here you can discover a color visualizer where you can upload a photo of your project (or room) and see how different colors will look!
I love to go in the store because the sales associates are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful.
I narrowed my paint choices online to four greens.

- Pine Grove
- Stuffed Olive
- Garland Green
- Olive Tree
After some debate, I decided to go with the green with more blue undertones (this will compliment all the navy in my home): Pine Grove. I bought a quart of the Clark + Kensington Paint + Primer in One. I went with a semi-gloss, and the finish is super smooth, and I love that the paint is stain resistant and washable. It is also exclusive to Ace Hardware.
Now that I had my paint, it was time to tackle my furniture project. I have been debating adding color to my dining room, and I decided my buffet was the perfect spot to add a little color without committing to painting walls (however, I love the color so much I wonder if I shouldn’t have painted the walls instead)?!
I painted this buffet over five years ago when I was into a more rustic look. My style has evolved over the years, and it no longer fit with my design aesthetic.
We carried the buffet out to the garage and covered the floor with a large drop cloth.
I lightly sand the piece and followed with a primer.
I used a sprayer for both the primer and the paint.
I used a brush to reach any spots the sprayer wouldn’t.
And the result was a buffet that better fits my decor style while adding a fun splash of color to the room!
I am guessing Pine Grove by Clark + Kensington will be making its way into our spaces in our home…
