If you own your home — especially in the time of COVID-19 — chances are you’ve looked around your four walls and fantasized about some kind of home makeover. Am I right?
If you have experienced these fantasies, you also probably looked at doing the painting yourself to save some money. Correct?
Well, let me tell you a story about my #DIY painting experience.
I owned a home in Cambrian Park near the Almaden Valley Athletic Club. My house needed an overhaul, and I had visions of making it look spectacular! I poured through design magazines. I pinned all kinds of visions on my Pinterest boards. I watched hours of HGTV episodes and developed my plan.
Money was tight, so I decided I could handle the complete repainting of my home interior on my own. I chose the colors I wanted. I went to Home Depot and got everything I needed…or so I thought.
Then, I went back to Home Depot to grab more blue tape.
I returned three more times before I had everything I could need. Paint? Check. Brushes? Check. Drop cloths? Check. Blue tape? Check. Sanity? Well… we’ll see about that.
I started with the hallway. I prepped my walls. I poured my paint. I grabbed my brushes and began what I expected to be a quick and easy weekend project.
Know what happened? After two days of painting one long hallway, I was exhausted. All of the money I spent on paint, tools, tape, and brushes exceeded my budget expectations. The quality of my work was questionable. I turned to my then-husband with pleading eyes, and he said, “YOU signed up for this. I didn’t.”
My next steps were as clear as day. It was time to call a professional painter!
Here are my five big reasons to hire a professional painter, namely Basurto Painting in San Jose.
