Just another manic Monday

House Painting 101


So we decided after we purchased our home that we would pain the whole thing by ourselves. We considered hiring out, we actually thought we would be able to hire one of the painters from the company we bought our house from. But they got pretty busy shortly after our house was started and so that wasn’t going to happen. So like the troopers we are, we said, “We got this! Let’s get it started…” Little did we know HOW much work it really was. My arms and back hurt just thinking about all of the painting we did. Now let me give a few details so you can get a full idea. We have 9 ft ceilings on the first floor, the place is over 3400 sq ft. There are 2 1/2 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms… we painted them all, or when we are FINALLY done we will have painted every room in the house. As of now everything is done except the kiddos bathroom and the spare bedroom. And I’m pretty cool with it not getting painted. If we never paint another room I don’t think I will be too mad.

So the next time you hear me talk of painting a room or something of the sort, smack me please!

Did I mention we ruined plenty of clothes (kiddos included) from painting. We still are picking paint out of the carpets and chipping it off of the hardwood floor. Yeah, painting your own place can be a pain in the tush. But it’s OUR place and it was an experience!
