Well, I finished painting my house in just two weeks. I also dyed my duvet and dining chairs. I even rearranged the furniture in my living room. It may have taken a while but the outcome is better (and way cheaper) than paying someone to do it for you. I can also say with confidence that I am now a painting pro! My next project, if it quits raining, is to stain my garden fence and gate. That way by next Spring I can hang some lattice and plant some flowers.
DIY is a great motivator. Once you see the fruits of your labor you want to do more and more! Are there any projects you guys are currently working on?
