I like what painting can do for a room, though. For the money, painting gets you the biggest bang for your buck. Around $20 for a can of paint, another $10 in brushes/supplies, and BAM! You've transformed a room in a few hours simply by changing the color on the walls.
But I don't think painting is my thing because I always get stuck with doing the trim and edges. And I need ideal painting conditions to do the trim and edges: good lighting, plenty of rest, and a sunny disposition.
The past few nights of painting, I've had none of these things.
We only did 1 and 1/4 walls tonight. It took less than an hour. At the 35 minute mark, this is what became of me....
Lying on the floor, whining about my back, begging the Big Guy to not make me look fat and pregnant in the pictures he was taking, and struggling to finish the edging along the baseboard. It was not a pretty sight.
On the plus side, the shade of green we picked out is lovely. And at this rate, we'll have the whole room done in three weeks.
Like I said, I'm really not cut out for this painting stuff.
