Painter wanted

Home Depot offered rebates on Behr paint over Labor Day weekend. It was just the excuse we needed to get our latest home project underway. We also chose new carpet to be installed. There’s soon to be no more royal blue, baby. Woohoo!

We prepped the living and dining rooms on Monday and got started on the ceiling. Early on, Frank realized that painting is not particularly fun and the strain on his back wasn’t doing him any good. We decided that we'd finish up the paint in the tray and seek quotes from painters to see if we could get the job professionally done.

The last two days we met with painters from various sources and each quote was more than we were looking to spend. The cheapest quote was $1075 (labor only), our place is only 957 sq ft. and we're not even doing the bathroom. So, it’s just not worth spending that much dough. Looks like I’ll have to suck it up and do it myself.
