Number of years I've hated the state of this cabinet: 14
[this was a cabinet that was a result of one of my dh's "dumpster dives" back in college]
Number of years I've said, "you know, I *really* should paint that thing one day...": again, 14
Number of times I had to go to the hardware store before they finally mixed my paint (they were having some problems, obviously): 4
Minutes it took to paint the inside (see below): 45 minutes
Time it took to do everything else (from taking off the hardware to priming and painting): One hour 20 minutes
Is that not sad? 14 years of misery for about two hours of work!
When will I learn that the mental build up is soooooooooo much worse than the actual job itself??
