To make our hallway a little more cohesive with our revamped entry area, I decided to complete a quick and easy hallway makeover. But as I started my project plan for the space, I noticed that it was a little more involved than I originally envisioned. Because I only have an hour or so a day to work on it, this two day project has quickly ballooned into a week… or two.
So far, I’ve only primed the walls using a latex primer (which I forgot to include in my project plan). Because the trim was previously painted with an oil-based paint, I need to go over it with oil-based primer before I can paint it with latex paint. I also forgot to include this step in my project plan. So looking at my plan, it’s kind of like I haven’t started yet. *Sigh* This quick and easy project has turned into quite the commitment.
Have you taken on what you thought was a quick and easy project, that later turned into a bear?
