I would've never guessed

I underestimated exactly how long it would take to paint my house.

  • The last time I had picked up a brush was decades ago.

I was helping my parents paint the guest dining room in their more than one-story house. Thinking that I would be able to handle the task separate from their assistance, I painted half of the room before I realized I forgot to tape anything off that might be exposed. Things such as light switches, electrical outlets, as well as trim had splotches of paint where I should have laid tape. Thankfully the paint had not fully cured so I could scrub away the excess from the sites I tried to avoid. Once I had taped the room as well as restarted the chore, the process was much easier. I was extremely lucky that I had not gone any further with my mistakes as well as by the end of the process the room looked decent. With this memory distant in my mind, I didn’t comprehend exactly how much time it would take for me to complete painting my entire house. I have a full time task as well as a few hobbies so I don’t have the most free time ever. There was a single process that I omitted last time as well as that was putting on a face mask. Even if you keep your running or your windows open, you’re going to be exposed to air with toxic fumes that could potentially make you feel ill. Upon studying this, I went to the store as well as purchased face masks in the paint aisle. Oddly enough, these up-to-date face masks have HEPA rated filtration. Not only does my vacuum also utilize a HEPA filter, however so does my central cooling system. When I learned that they filter 99.9% of all pathogens out of the air, I was sold.
