I’ve been very gung-ho on the whole “DIY” lifestyle lately. I have gotten a lot of gratification out of the house projects we’ve been doing, and have genuinely enjoyed doing most all of them. However. Let me just tell you a little bit about the WORST DIY PROJECT EVER that we tackled this weekend.
Painting. The. Ceiling.
Hold me. There is not enough money in the world (okay, well maybe in the whole world) to make me do that again. Every muscle in my body is STILL aching after hours of rolling that forsaken ceiling. If I ever see white paint (or in this case, purple paint that dries white) again, it will be too soon. We removed some cabinetry in the kitchen, leaving a large box of unpainted ceiling. Also, we have installed new lighting, which has left more ceiling beauty all over the lower level of our house, so it really had to be done. It was horrible. Have I mentioned that I did not enjoy painting the ceiling?? Okay, well just in case you missed it, I really dislike ceiling painting. Really.
It was probably the least gratifying painting job I’ve ever done. Usually, yes, painting sucks, BUT the “after” is so awesome, that it is worth the hassle. In this case? It’s like, “oh hi, look at the four hours of work I put in to make the ceiling look EXACTLY THE SAME!!” No thank you, I say. NO thank you.
I despised this process so much, that dare I say it, I AM NEVER PAINTING AGAIN. When it comes to ceiling painting- D.I.Y. has officially turned into H.S.E…. HIRE SOMEONE ELSE.
P.S. I’m not doing that again.
