North Waikato News - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

Paint­ing a room doesn’t have to be a chore.

For many, the task of paint­ing a new room can be quite dull. Af­ter all, peo­ple don’t usu­ally watch paint dry for fun, do they?

But deal­ing with paint can, in fact, be very re­ward­ing. Pick­ing out paint is a chance to in­vite a lit­tle bit of fresh­ness into your home, and as long as you take your time, you may find the process quite re­lax­ing. in the shaker at your lo­cal Re­sene ColourShop, you could just find your­self com­pletely en­tranced as the colours swirl to make a new one that’s per­fect for your home. can’t ex­plain. Paint­ing could make you feel as if you’re cov­er­ing the old with the new – you’re giv­ing your­self a fresh start. It’s the per­fect way to re­set your in­ter­nal clock. Feel­ing re­laxed yet? Hav­ing the eye to tie a whole room to­gether is in­cred­i­bly re­ward­ing. Be­fore brush met wall, you flipped through count­less mag­a­zines, talked to friends and fam­ily, and ag­o­nised over colour, fur­ni­ture, cur­tains and ac­ces­sory choices to get the room look­ing just right.

But fi­nally, af­ter all that hard work, you’re ready to sit back in your com­fi­est arm­chair and take in your hard work. Take a deep breath and slowly ex­hale. It wasn’t so hard af­ter all, was it?

The sat­is­fac­tion of re­paint­ing a room and see­ing the trans­for­ma­tion from start to fin­ish is sur­pris­ingly re­ward­ing – so re­ward­ing you might just find your­self eye­ing up the next room to paint.
