I LOVE LOVE LOVE reader posts - LOVE and today I got a good one from GF
"Ok, I love this blog. This is a snarky comment but more of a general snarky comment than one focused on exactly what is posted here. Disclaimer done.
I am a DIY'r when it comes to painting and such. Why to so many people say "I painted the kitchen" when they hired it done. Wouldn't it be more accurate to say "I had the kitchen painted" or "Fantastic Painter David just finished with a fabulous coat of white in my kitchen"
I am less irked when it is a much more complex task or group of tasks "we built a house" I get because even just picking a lot and floor plan and letting the builder do all the work is really rather hard. Versus grabbing a paint chip and calling David."
Well GF I get it BIG TIME! Won't happen again - promise! And thank you because it is something I have NEVER thought about but makes TOTAL sense. I would never paint my own kitchen because I have done it before and it was a disaster. I do however have a friend her name is Kate Betts who used to change the color of her apartment with the seasons and did it herself - I was always so impressed by that - It stuck with me all these years later. How often do you change the color of your walls and do you Paint it or employ someone like David Fantastic?
