It's that period of the year again, folks – time to dust off those old resolutions and set some new ones for the year ahead. You know the drill – lose weight, save money, run a marathon, and, oh yeah, don't forget to paint the house.
But let's be honest here...how many of us are actually going to follow through on these resolutions? The answer, of course, is a big fat zero. But that's okay because we'll just make the same ones again next year and hope for a better outcome. It's a tradition, after all.
So, if painting the house is on your New Year's resolutions list, we say go for it! Just be prepared for some bumps along the way. Here are a few things to consider as you embark on your home improvement journey:
- Make sure you have all the necessary supplies before you start - Nothing is worse than getting halfway through a painting project and realizing you're out of paint. Trust us - that is tough.
- Don't forget to protect your floors and furniture - Painting is a messy business, and you don't want to end up with paint splatters all over your carpet.
- Consider hiring a professional - If you're not the DIY type or just want to save yourself the headache, it might be worth it to hire a professional painter – he'll bring the rollers, the brushes, and the mop to clean up afterward. Just be prepared to spend a little extra cash.
- Remember that it's just painting - You can always repaint if you make a mistake or don't like how it turns out. It's not the end of the world.
So go forth and paint the house, my friends! Just don't be too hard on yourself if you don't end up following through on all of your New Year's resolutions. After all, there's always next year to try again (or just give up and embrace your inner sloth).
Cheers, Happy New Year, and let's have many ones ahead, so we can finish up all the fantastic things we've planned!
