Getting Pedantic – That’s what happens the more you know!

Can’t believe my boyfriend and I do a better paint job then the expert painter. Guess being a newbie and a minor perfectionist we did things to the nth degree (eg. sanding, taping, undercoat etc). You know, just in case.  Our first bathroom paint job had sharp edges and no brush strokes. I noticed our painter did not use tape, hence his edges were not as sharp and you can see his brush strokes as the roller cannot be rolled to the edges. There was also areas that was not properly sanded or putted up.  It’s funny, I never noticed these minor details. I guess the more you know the more you see and the more pedantic you get.

Tip: When you get a tradie in, observe him as that is the best way to learn. We did exactly that and now we seem to think we can paint the whole house 🙂
