|I painted my bedroom last winter. It literally took months to accomplish. For starters, I don't like painting. It's very tedious and time-consuming. The end results are good (usually), but the process is unenjoyable. And it's because the process isn't just painting. It's taping the floor and walls so I can paint the trim, then taping the walls and windows so I can paint the window trim, then taping the upper wall to paint the ceiling, then taping the trim and ceiling before finally actually painting the walls. Oh, and painting a door, both sides, two coats each. All this coupled with the fact that (a) I already have a full-time job, (b) other activities occasionally take up my weekends, and (c) I really don't feel like doing it.
Yes, I could hire someone to do it for me, but as I've mentioned in the past, I have a hard time convincing people to take my money in exchange for a simple service, i.e. contractors suck.
And yes, the timing of this post (10 months after the fact) is ironic. #lifestyle
