My wife and I started a major painting project over this long holiday weekend. Honestly, painting is not my favorite thing to do. I think my biggest issue with the chore is that it takes so much time out of your weekend. I know some people enjoy painting. I'm just not one of them.
The real reason we took this on is that the existing carpet was shot. These were last two rooms in the house with original carpet. We cleared the MB and my office. As of this report we have two coats of paint on the MB walls and the office is prepped and ready to be painted today. Once painting is done it will be a few weeks before the carpet will arrive and we can reassemble the rooms. Everything is packed into the spare bedrooms at this point. Disassembling the room was harder than I thought. The computer in my office along with the two printers and all the network connections took some time to pack up properly. Also, this was the first time in 17 years that we really did anything in the office. Plenty of stuff that needed to go in the trash. The MB has been painted before. The issue there was the furniture and moving it out. A bigger chore than I anticipated. At least today I can see the end of the project. The office will paint quickly as we are painting the ceiling and the walls the same color so we do not need to be as careful as we were in the MB.
I certainly will save a bunch of $$$ with the DYI project. Back to work. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. I know how I'll be spending mine.
