Spritzer Bedroom Renovations – a lousy paint job
April 19, 2012 in Renovations
In my last post, I mentioned that the living room, hallway and my office were done by outside “professional painters”. Steph found them while watching the local news. She figured if they were good enough to appear on tv, that had to be good enough to hire them. They quoted her a “home show” special pricing. Even though it was reasonable, it turned out to be a case of you get what you pay for. And, I wasn’t too happy with some of their efforts….missed spots, overlaps, shadows and one particular spot that was too obvious and conspicuous.
As you can see, it doesn’t have to take a professional painter to do a professional job. The entire re-patch and re-paint job took roughly the same amount of time the original effort took. So if you are in the Western NY area looking for a painter, feel free to contact me to find out who the “pros” were so you can avoid them.
Next up, the third bedroom. I sometimes surprise myself with the efforts I put into any renovation or handyman job. So, you’ll get to see some of the more minute details of the work in that third room. Once again, stay tuned……
