Holy crap, painting sucks.

It is the easiest and cheapest of home improvements.

Enjoy :lol:

If that sucks, don’t replace you water softener yourself.

Well part of what sucks is the trim. It feels like it takes so long but you cover so little actual wall space. :chainsaw:
I don’t mind taking the roller to the wall. That part you can actually see the progress :lol:

And I decided as soon as people mentioned soldering that I was going to hire out the water softener install. I’d rather be sure it’s done right than try to do it myself to save some money and have it backfire.

I’m right there with ya on painting. Feels like the trim and doors are taking decades. End result is looking nice though.

I hate painting with a fiery passion.

Yeah on the plus side, the colors that I picked out are looking pretty good. Haven’t done the “man cave” yet (where I’ll have a couple maroon walls for my Gopher fandom, naturally), but the two main colors turned out pretty nice.
