This has been a tough weekÂ at our home.Â We’re selling our house and there’s a ton of stuff to do before putting the house on the market.Â One of the biggies is painting. J and I were getting bids to paint our home (only 1180 square feet), and the amount these companies were charging was just insane. For example, one bid came in at $6200!Â
A friend of ours suggestedÂ that we haveÂ “painting party” with family, friends, and any willing neighbors.Â I’m not sure if it was really a “party,” but there was a lot of painting going on.Â And we did it!Â Because of the collective efforts of the following, we painted the entire house in one day:
Maya and I spent Saturday prepping the house for painting, and we generally worked and worked from 11am to 8pm.Â Yesterday, afterÂ everyone left, we finally finished putting most of our stuff away and got the house back into reasonable shape by 8:30pm.Â It was a lot of work, but we’re very please with the results!
“THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU” to all who helped with the painting this weekend.Â We are so very grateful forÂ all your hard work.Â
