Getting our House Painted This Week
We've been in our home since late 2002, and we've lived with off-white walls throughout, until now. Partially because it was starting to look beat up (kids can do that) and partially because we were simply tired of the lack of color, we decided to just move forward and pick out some colors and have it painted through most of the interior.
Now that our bathroom and part of our family room have been painted, my only regret is that we didn't do it sooner. Even though we have several days left before they finish, our house already feels nicer and, frankly, more expensive. I have a good friend who is a painter, so we're getting a "deal" there. However, now that I see the results, I would have gladly paid full price to feel this much better about the place where we live.
There are a couple of points/lessons that I learned already:
- Using colors when painting makes a huge difference in how nice the home seems
- Paint is a relatively small investment to change your environment and the accompanying satisfaction that it brings
