You live, you learn. And sometimes that learning saves your marriage.
In 2016 we renovated the original portion of our house that hadn't been touched since 1976. As part of the renovation, we painted it the good old fashioned way, with rollers and brushes. Why, you may ask? I hated cleaning sprayers and never had good luck with them.
The painting came close to being the end of us, physically and mentally. What didn’t seem like a lot to paint, a week later, was a lot to paint.
When we started the addition a few years later, I vaguely remember Ashley saying that if I valued our marriage, I wouldn't ask her to paint again. She requested that we hire someone.
However, I’d seen this Wagner Control Pro 130 and in typical fashion thought, I can do this, no need to hire.
Through a glaring side-eye I convinced her she didn’t have to participate, but I wanted to paint the addition with the sprayer.
My reasoning was that this sprayer seemed so much easier to use and clean. Also, if I painted it, we wouldn’t have to wait around on a painter to be available. Plus we could use the saved money for so many other things.
Long story short, I was right to take a chance. It was by far the easiest painting job I’ve ever done inside and out. Not to mention, the cleaning part was super simple and easy. Marriage saved.
