    True, often there is more work in prepping a room to be painted than there is in the painting itself.

    Yeah, and if it is a kitchen with old grease on the walls, gotta wash it with TSP. Over a semi-gloss you might get good results if you sand the walls to rough the surface. A lot less work than actually stripping the old paint.

    I know, right?

    I can tell how hard you were laughing, you missed the 'funny' button and hit 'dislike' by mistake.

    There would be for me. I am an abysmal painter. I truly despise it. I can make a mess with a 1/2” cut in brush. I do not want to see what mess I would make with 18” ‘s of brush

    I hate rollers, only ever use brushes and I've painted a lot of walls. Living in military married quarters means you have to have spotless clean walls when you march out, the easiest way is just to paint them. Over the years that's a lot of walls by myself as my OH was usually on deployment so it was left to me to move us lock stock and barrel to another house sometimes another house in another country.123
