    Talking Things to NOT do or say when painting the house with hubby...

    do NOT leave thanksgiving table cloth on dining room table/paint can station

    do NOT admire husband's ceiling painting talents while holding his little paint tray....you WILL get dizzy and tip the tray over...

    do NOT say "OOPS"! out loud....keep it to yourself!

    resist the temptation to give that wall...even the little one that second coat of paint before the first one dries...although it is quite remarkable how paint can 'remove itself

    don't EVEN mention lunch..or any form of stopping work to eat...apparently its unacceptable

    if you spill deep mahagony/chocolate paint on pale carpet.... run...run very very quietly and FAST!

    updates and pics to follow in a couple of days....if we survive this..and each other!

    i'm just kicking myself for not taking BEFORE pics!!
    we've got these HUUUUUGE GINORMOUS walls that have been hospital white for 3 years..my son just walked in & said "woah! this looks like one of those decorator show houses!" wooo hooo! its paying off!
    I swear..the paint even made it feel 'warmer' in here!

    Re: Thing to NOT do or say when painting the house with hubby...

    What are his symptoms? Heavy breathing? Deep shade of red...maybe puce?
    Has he managed to get any syllables out yet? Complete sentences? Pupils dilated?

    He may be suffering from post "house-painting-with-spouse" disorder. Don't call 911 yet, but keep an eye on him tonight. It's best to speak very quietly and use words with only one or two syllables. In fact, you might just want to let him rest quietly until tomorrow. Put a nice piece of furniture over the mahgony paint, and try to get him really, really drunk. If he drinks enough...he might blow chunks over the spot and then...VOILA! It's HIS fault!
    (Remember to move furniture first...)
    Symptoms may persist from 24 to 48 hours. Ativan and valium are also highly recommended.

    For further advice, see a health care professional.

    OMG you have me rolling!

    When we did dsnylndkid1's room we were going to do the playroom next, followed by my room and the kitchen and finally the Great Room. It went so "well" that the kid's room has been done since Spt. and the rest of the house is the same colors!

    Can I add to your list?

    "When they ask, how's it look" do NOT, I mean do NOT be honest and point out the bad spots unless you feel like experience the Look of Death

    Well, at least you know the rules. You'd be amazed how many wives don't.
    You can think I'm wrong, but that's no reason to quit thinking.
