So as a dude, my main concern isn’t making sure my house is in tip top shape. I’m a radio host, and I sit inside all day so I’m pretty comfortable. I mean as long as my house has got a TV, couch, food, bed, a nice shower and toilet, I’m pretty much set. But naturally, I would marry someone who wants her house in perfect condition. No dust, everything colour matched, etc. So when we finally found our perfect home after months and months of searching, even though it seemed amazing to me, my wife said there was much work to be done.
The outside needed to be re-painted, the inside needed new appliances and wall colours, and the landscape had to be re-done. Now being a manly guy, I thought I could get it all done with a bunch of my buds and my wife. Well, little did I know, all my radio buds were useless when it comes to anything artsy, crafty, or handy. So basically they were useless. We were painting our garage a different colour and it came out quite hideous. We should have just gotten commercial painters to help us out. I bet it would have taken them one hour instead of five, and it would 100% look 100% better than it did.
So onto the inside of the house. My wife wanted our living room to be dual colours – light blue and beige, sort of like a colour block. Well, my buddies and I not only messed that up, but we got paint everywhere on our brand new hardwood flooring. Yeah, my wife wasn’t too happy about that.
Basically the moral of this story is that when it comes to painting or re-decorating, I’ve learned to ask for help. There are so many Best painting services company in Toronto that I wish I didn’t go through the trouble of doing it myself. Definitely would have turned out so much better with their help.
