Recently we painted several rooms in our home.

Let me tell you, by the end of it I was so unhappy. Days of painting had rendered me with sore wrists, tight shoulders, and a very cranky outlook on life. 

Several weeks removed from it, though, I’m so pleased that we decided to do it.

The effect that fresh paint has on a room is quite remarkable. It’s one of the cheapest ways to give a space a face-lift. You don’t need remodeling, or contractors, or expensive materials. Just brushes, rollers, paint and time. 

Yet considering how relatively simple and cheap it was, it feels like we have a whole new home. Everything that was repainted feels so clean and bright and new. It just makes me happy walking through the house. 

I know, painting is a pain. Many people avoid painting spaces for years because they just don’t want to be bothered with the hassle of it. 

And yet, painting is one of the biggest “bang for your buck” things that can be done to give a space a facelift.

For a relatively small investment, you get a room that feels completely different and new. It’s really quite remarkable! 

If you’ve been feeling like you want to give one of your hosted spaces a makeover, but don’t want to invest too much money into it, consider repainting it. You’ll probably be miserable while you’re doing, but I promise you, after it’s done you’ll be so glad you did it :).
