I like Doing It Myself. Save money, and sense of accomplishment.

My ex liked to paint everything with a 4 inch brush. Semi-gloss. It was just gross.
It is hard to find a good painter, one who will prepare for paint, and do a good job with spackle. Too many want to rush throug the job.

All DIY when I was a kid. It got old. I would rather hire a pro. Painting is a pro job, for sure. I hate it.

Same here, Trooper. I paint small jobs, but try to avoid it when I can. painting was punishment whne I was a kid.

I just finished a closet makeover with cabinets, wood shelves and nice hanger bars.
I tore out the old wire shelves.
It made a real difference. It is more organized and there is more storage space. And, it looks nice.
Pretty easy job
