It wasn't much, but I got some of it done. I hope Glidden paint covers well. Someone did a painting of dolphins jumping out of the water on the wall. When we looked at pictures of this house when it was on the market, before asking to see it, there was a matching shower curtain with dolphins jumping. When we moved into this house, the holes in the shower curtain were all torn up and it wouldn't hang up for bathing.
I move like a turtle or a slug now and wish I could pay to have work like this done. I guess a person familiarizes oneself to the flaws of their home by cleaning and maintaining it. I write things that need to be fixed onto my computer. When we have funds, I know right where to use them.
I hate to think about taping and painting the bathroom, but it needs done and it won't get done unless I do it. At our old house, I did the painting. Mom also helped me paint the whole house while I was pregnant with our daughter 38 years ago. I washed the walls and she painted while I was at work as a waitress.
Hubby had the men over from the church, when our children were little and told them not to paint the ceiling of the upstairs bathroom. He didn't think I would notice. Well, you can guess how that went! It was a shade darker than the rest of the bathroom and they had to paint the ceiling then touch up the splatters on the walls.
I have never understood why people try to skip parts of a job and they try to call it "good enough."
I used to work at a riding academy and the horses were tied to standing stalls side by side with just a board between them. I worked for free so I could ride the horses. One fellow was hired and he would dump sawdust over manure and make it look like the stall had been cleaned. My boss dressed in new jeans and expensive cowboy boots and went to go up beside a horse and stepped in horse manure. The fellow was fired. It wasn't hard to rake up the manure onto a shovel and put it into a wheelbarrow until there was enough to empty the wheelbarrow. But sad to say, that is how some people do their job.
I was a shovel operator. Steam or electric?
