There are some things in life that require a little more skill that just a weekend warrior can handle. Tasks that are sometimes necessary, but also dreaded at the same time. A skill that can’t be improved unless you do it a lot.
I don’t get to use caulk much, but when I do I try to make a mess out of it.
OK, not really, but I sure could use more practice! No, wait, I don’t mean that either because more practice would mean more things that needs to be sealed or fixed or leaks stopped…so scratch that. Should I be wishing for more caulk in my life? How about if I am just magically bestowed with great caulking skills?
So, the weekend saw me use the sparse caulking skills I have on a project that I had been putting off for about a month. It is now done. Some places on the job turned our rather well, if I don’t mind saying. AND other places look like a blind person was doing the job (it’s sealed, but looks messy). Good thing I am not being graded on this or I probably would have scored a C- on looks (some nice beads but also messy in places) but a A- on “there ain’t no water getting through that.”
Thankfully, I don’t have any more caulking jobs in the foreseeable future.
Any weekend warriors/DIYers out there that have projects they are putting off or absolutely hate doing?
