A home is no different than a Hollywood star:
Slap a little make-up and color on it, scrub it clean, polish it up and voila! You have a goddess!
A couple weeks ago, we threw a party that started at 8 p.m. because everyone looks better in the dark! We figured that after 8 p.m., our guests wouldn’t be able to tell we needed a paint job.
The week before the party, however, the husband AKA “Caveman” did make time to paint. Why? I asked him if he was making an excuse to stay home while I slaved away at work. He insisted that he needs to be surrounded by beauty and that our work is what makes our home life worthwhile.
No argument from me! Let him paint, scrape, patch, plant, tear up, put back together, cook those tomatoes in the bowl before they go bad, etc.
In the last month, our goddess has had a new interior paint job, a new roof and solar and an electric car charger installed, new tile floor*, stove and exhaust hood in the kitchen and staining some of the wood and wood cabinets throughout the house.
There will always be more to do but better to do it now and enjoy it than do what many folks do and wait to sell before making improvements…
*New tile floor was installed due to our dog Piglet chewing the former linoleum and baseboards. The hubby hated that white floor anyway!
