It has been several years since our condo was last painted. The fastidious Joy Ann and I are low impact people so a paint job can last decades.
Some of the stuff hanging on our walls was placed there before Clinton was governor of Arkansas.
The real issue with painting it is not loading up a roller and putting paint to wall. The real issue is the prep work. Everything on the walls has to come down. All the furniture has to be moved to the center of the room. Drapes and blinds have to come down. Covers have to be removed from electrical outlets and wall switches. Bookshelves, televisions, appliances, really everything we own or owe on must be disturbed in some way.
The occasion of painting is a great time to get rid of unwanted clutter. We have a clock that was a long ago gift from a forgotten benefactor. I not sure that clock ever kept accurate time but it has sat in our den ticking away year after year. As I was putting it in the dumpster yesterday a neighbor spotted it and asked if she could have it. She pointed to the second hand dutifully marking time and asked if it worked. I told her the mechanism moved but I thought the time displayed was 11:16 in March of 1992. Undeterred she tuck the clock under her arm and headed for her condo.
The big surprise when you paw through your possessions is what is important or memorable to one may be of little value to someone else.
For example, we have three pieces in our den that feature the likeness of a zebra. There is a frame zebra painting, a shadow box zebra portrait and a foot stool in zebra print. We don’t have a dog or cat or any kind of pet. Out to the dumpster with this hideous art. Who knew my Joy Ann liked zebras.
The ever instructive Joy Ann reminded me this morning that I should just say what I am going to do instead of taking it on my own to throw away family treasures.
