    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.

    a good paint job can make a home a star. a bad one can make it a black hole....

    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
