I used to really hate painting my house because I put too pressure on the finish to be absolutely perfect. Every brushstroke. Every edge. Every small detail. It made the experience exhausting and unenjoyable. It made me reluctant to move onto the painting the next room (and the next, and the next....) as the whole process seemed so unappealing. I'm learning (it's a process!) to let go of 'perfection' and ask myself 'who will actually care about this besides you?' - it's been freeing. And after a few months, the paintbrushes have been picked up again. Watch this space!
