Renovating Snobbery?

Recently I was speaking with a friend about renovating. Now we all know what I am doing with my house currently, and that is what I classify as renovating. it includes saws, timber, nails, swear words, destruction and construction.

Anyway, my friend was telling me she was renovating her house. Now my little ears perked up at this and I asked what she was doing. She was painting a wall. Instantly my shoulders dropped and I got a serious look on my face. She was one of those people. The people who make out painting is a renovating task.

Now to me painting is painting. Its redecorating. Not renovating. And when I told my husband this he called me a snob.

So, am I a renovating snob?

  1. I'm with you babe! painting a wall isn't renovating. Renovate: to tear down and rebuild.

    Not make it a new pretty colour.

  2. Yes you're a reno snob, but I agree with you so I guess I am one too, lol

  3. I also agree with you, so a reno-snob I am!

    I class painting a wall is redecorating, not renovating.

  4. I was just telling my husband about your amazing renovating and he says to tell you that you are practically a builder not just a renovator! Yes, you know that we are deifnitely DIY drop outs at our place so we are very impressed with your work April!
