my 4yo is destroying my house!

my 4yo daughter has been making huge messes in my bathroom for several months now. soap, shampoo, lotion... fingerpainted on the floor, walls, sink, tub. we moved to a new house almost a year ago, and before that gained 3 stepdaughters. i think she's acting out, but i give her plenty of one on one time. the other kids are in school and my husband works, so it's just me and her all day long. she never an answer as to WHY she does it either. i've tried making her clean it up, making her stand in a corner, taking her piggy bank money to replace the lost product, spanking, grounding, going to bed early, taking away toys, etc. just today she's escalated to canola oil all over my kitchen floor. i'm at a total loss :(
