I Hate Painting !!!
« on: March 20, 2017, 10:51:59 PM »
 ::) :P SWMBO found a one year old solid oak China cabinet on Craig's List new $1500.00 bargain girl got it for $100 + $75 to rent a van to bring it home. Then she decided we needed new carpet in the dinning room because the old carpet was ugly. She also decided that if we were going to get new carpet "WE" me should repaint the living room and dinning room before the carpet is installed on Wednesday ..I HATE PAINTING  !!!  >:( :-[ ::) :'( :'(

Ummm... I think you missed a step or two....
1. Drink 2 12 packs while listening to color choices.
2. Spend 3 trips and 14.7 hours at paint store while predetermined color choices are changed.
3. Return to paint store when discovered that "the samples didn't look like that".
4.Return to the paint store again for the painter's tape, drop cloth, brushes, rollers and stir sticks that were forgotten on the first 4 trips in haste to return to the 3rd 12 pack.
5.Move all furniture, pictures of family members that had prior engagements and could not help paint but will sure to be around when it's done to help finish remaining beer, outlet covers and curtains from the room.
6.Place drop cloth while trying to convince the dog that it's not a flippin game.
7. Spend 30 minutes looking for the end of the painter's tape only to have it rip off on a diagonal pattern that is never recovered from.
8. Endure 2 hours of lesson from SWMBO on how painter's tape should be applied.
9.Stir paint thoroughly.
10.Stir again at afore mention's request with a humble "Yes Dear"
RULE # 1:  We Do Not Paint In N Patterns. In This House We Paint In W Patterns.
Do I need to continue because if I do, we're gonna need more beer....

::) Bill i can see that Betty Lou has you well trained in the finer points pf house painting. My sweety is at the hospital tonight taking care of her patients while I work and slave doing penance for all the AG related stuff I have acquired over the past 3 years and recruited my older step son to bring down to the man cave while his mom was sleeping  ;) ;D ;D Just goes to prove that if they weren't smarter than us we would all be single and running amok  ;D ;D ;D

Man, you guys are whiners.

Mitch and I are ex-Navy.  Ain't nobody can paint like a sailor, cuz it is ALL WE DID when we weren't fixing, doing preventive maintenance work, or cleaning something.

My wife learned a log time ago if she wants something painted, we go the Big-Box store, she picks the colors while I look at grills, lumber, and tools, and then I get a text saying she's ready to check out.  THEN and ONLY THEN... I go buy 2 rolls of tape, 3 extra brushes despite the fact we're using rollers, an extra painter's trim-knife, and at least one putty-knife/4-way painter's friend.  Getting rollers is a given, and that's when I sneak in a couple impact-driver bits and some type of miscellaneous screws for the honey-do projects that ALWAYS follow the painting.

SWMBO always gets her way, but she learned the first time we painted together that I do the taping and prep, she runs the rollers, and I do ALL the trim.  Otherwise she hears me do the "Back in the Navy we had to..." talk.  Yessirree... I hate painting, but I hate painting the same thing twice even more.  So I do prep and trim and when things are taking too long, I tell her to take a break and then I go full-steam ahead.

About prep and clean-up:  More detail during prep, less work cleaning up.  Those paper rolls for flooring and plastic rolls for carpet are worth every cent they cost.  And I don't bother cleaning rollers.  Single use- all part of the cost. 



Disclaimer: when I was going through divorce number 2, one of the main things that kept chicken in the fridge and tequila in the pantry was side work doing painting.  I may hate it, but I got pretty good on account of going hungry is a lot worse than painting.


After the painting and carpet..she'll notice it needs new China ware 💸
My wife tried pulling that stunt with me.  I used misdirection and got her one of those fancy Keurig coffee machines.

I forgot you were a Navy Vet.  It explains why you hate painting but are good at it.  It's in your blood!

And yeah, it didn't matter your rating.  If you went haze-gray and underway, you held a brush when you got back in-port.

Like they told us in basic, if it moves salute it. If it doesn't, paint it. LOL

Don, we just moved into a new to us house. EVERY wall now has spackle where the previous owners hung all kinds of stuff. After you get done there come on down. Your one room will be a warm-up exercise.
