28. Touch up paint around house. A small container of paint and a Q-tip will go a long way around this place.
There’s a lot of spots around the house that look like this. A place where the paint or drywall got dinged, plus some odd smudges that just won’t wipe off. Also note the wood floors that need to be refinished. That’s on the list, too.
So this morning, I grabbed a rag (not shown), a mini can of “custom blue” paint and some Q-tips and went to work. I actually ended up repainting one whole wall in our kitchen because the scuffs were so bad. I did use a brush for that.
Honestly, the whole house could probably stand to be repainted, but hello, vaulted ceilings. Not gonna try that. Touching up paint is one of those unfortunate small changes that doesn’t make you gasp and say wow, but I also don’t have that annoyed/make it go away feeling when I look at our walls anymore. So it’s definitely better.
