I underestimated how long it would take to paint our house.
The last time I had picked up a brush was many years ago.
I was helping our parents paint the guest family room in their two-story house. Thinking that I could handle the work without their assistance, I painted most of the room before I realized I forgot to tape anything off that might be exposed. Things appreciate light switches, electrical plugs, and trim had splotches of paint where I should have laid tape. On the bright side the paint had not fully cured so I could wipe away the excess from the locales I tried to avoid. Once I had taped the room as well as restarted the chore, the process was much easier. I was simply fortunate that I had not gone any further with our mistakes as well as by the end of the process the room looked pretty good. With this memory distant in our mind, I didn’t realize how much time it would take for me to complete painting our entire house. I have a full time job as well as a few hobbies so I don’t have the most free time in the world. There was one particular process that I omitted last time as well as that was wearing a face mask. Even if you keep your air conditioning running or your windows open, you’re most likely going to be exposed to air with toxic fumes that could potentially make you feel sick and tired. Upon learning this, I went to the store as well as bought face masks in the paint aisle. Strangely enough, these new face masks have HEPA rated filtration. Not only does our vacuum also utilize a HEPA filter, but so does our central cooling system. When I learned they filter 99.9% of all pathogens out of the air, I was sold.
