For Everything Else...


Telling the workman who helped hang your pocket doors, “No thanks. We will paint them ourselves. We’re handy that way and besides, we want it done immediately.”

Savings: $75.00

Calling the same workman exactly one year later to see if he will please paint the doors that you and your husband were too lame to get to.

Priceless.

This is funny. We had a similar incident with our baseboards that never got put back after they were taken down to put in carpet many years ago. We moved and those baseboards never did make it back on the wall.

Welcome to my world. I'm glad you are just going to have it done. Those doors will look even cuter when they have a coat of paint.
