For all of you out there that think you can’t do some things, maybe because you’re scared, or you’ve never done them before and they seem like only “other” people do them. I’m here to tell you that you can do whatever it is that you think you can’t!
Painting this wall right there was one of those things that I thought was impossible to get done! I’m the painter in my marriage, I just have to put that out there, I am detail oriented and super picky about paint so this was my job, butI am afraid of heights! Yikes, so what was I supposed to do?! Hiring a painter was too much money when I could technically do it myself, I just was scared Is that a good enough excuse to spend a lot of unnecessary money? The other option was to face it head on, overcome my fears, put that ancestral grit my mom always told me I had flowing in my veins to work, and get ‘er done! This wall is 18’ and it wraps all the way around the steps. Logistically there are spots where there just isn’t a place to stand right in front of it. I could barely climb up to the top tier on this scaffolding at first (it has another level that you can’t see here), my legs were shaking, the whole thing would rattle when I moved, and my arms are weak. ButI did it, and I did it all in one day!
Every time I’ve tackled a diy home project that I didn’t know how to do, I’ve learned a little more about myself. I’ve learned that I can do things that I thought were only allowed for the “professionals” or that only men typically know how to do. But ladies I’m here to tell you that YOU can do it! You can run power tools, climb high to paint a wall or even tile a bathroom. I’ve done it! Thisthis is why I love doing DIY’s! I always feel a bit braver, smarter, and stronger when I try something. All of this translates into things that help me in everyday life. Teach me to overcome my fears and keep living my best life
