The FrogTape Paintover Challenge that I recently participated in is over and the winner is actually. . . St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital! Thanks to your votes, my porch makeover was the winning project which means FrogTape will donate $5000 to the charity I chose. If I haven’t said it lately, I’m really thankful for those of you who read my blog and take the time to support me in these kinds of things. You’re the best!
Last week, the really nice people from FrogTape and a film crew came to our house to film our porch and a short interview about my process. You can watch it here. I’m not sure why it surprises me how southern I sound every time I see myself on video. :)
Thanks again to each one of you who voted and to FrogTape for sponsoring such an awesome contest. You can find more details and all the pictures of my completed porch in my reveal post.
Congratulations! Your porch looks amazing!
That’s awesome, Emily! Congrats! Yay for St Jude!

So happy for you Emily! And St. Jude’s Hospital! What a wonderful charity to give Frog’s donation to.
I am forever painting and from now on I will only use Frog tape!
Emily you are a star!
Yea! So happy, Emily — you deserve it!
And, embrace your “southernese” — As a southerner born and raised in Georgia, I’m so thankful.
Congratulations Emily and…St. Jude’s Hospital!! I’ll support you any time, Emily!

I think you sound wonderful on the interview. You could not have picked a better charity! The porch looks GREAT!
Congratulations! What a beautiful space.
Congratulations! You are awesome! And St. Jude is near and dear to my heart. Win-Win!!!

Hooray! That’s so exciting. And St. Jude’s is amazing. I know it feels good that you’ve helped with such a generous donation. Also, I think I forgot to comment earlier but your kitchen is gorgeous! Congrats on all your finished projects. It probably doesn’t seem like it to you, but from here it looks like you’ve been moving right along on the “new” house. Can’t wait to see the finished kid’s bathroom!
Emily Clark says
Thanks, Michele! We’re getting there. It feels like everything is happening at once with this upstairs renovation…
Congratulations Emily. I voted for you. :)
So happy for St. Judes that they will receive an amazing gift.
Job well done!
(LOVE your necklace too!)
Congratulations, Emily! Beautiful, inviting porch and your video! St. Jude’s is the best!
Congratulations! Happy for you and happy that such a worthy cause will get the $5,000 donation.
That frogtape is amazing. I used it after seeing it on your website and it was the best tape I have ever used when painting. And I hate painting!! So thanks for promoting it!
Well deserved Emily!
Congrats! Your porch looks wonderful. Where are the shoes you’re wearing in the first photo from? I have been on the search for a pair like that!
Emily Clark says
I found them at Ross. They’re Reaction by Kenneth Cole.
How sweet, kind and wonderful that you donated the prize. You put a smile on my face and boy, I needed one, so THANKS again!
Emily Clark says
I have FrogTape to thank for that, but so happy I could help a great cause :)
