Salaries on a Budget? It's Not as Hard as You Think

October 31, 2021



I just wanted to take a moment to bring up this conversation with you. It’s not that salary is always the most important thing in a business, but the fact of the matter is that it’s often the most important thing to consider in a salary. I find this particularly true when it comes to contractors, who in a typical building project only get paid the salary of their last job, after the job they started.

It's also true when it comes to house painting. If you are the owner of a home with a large budget for paint, the fact is that you likely pay the contractor a higher amount than you would if you were painting the interior or exterior of your home. The reason is that when you paint your home, you're not only painting the exterior. You're also painting every single piece of wood, glass, and wall coverings that make up your home.

This is where things get a little tricky. 

When you start to paint your home, you may think you're getting paid the same amount whether you paint the exterior or interior. But the truth is, you're likely paying a lot more money for the exterior paint than you are for the interior paint because the exterior of a home is far more important to a homeowner than the interior because it represents the “look” of the house.

As anyone who has ever painted their home will attest, it's very easy to pay a lot more for the exterior paint than you do for the interior paint. It's also very easy to use the same color in the exterior and interior of the home (because the colors are so similar) and end up paying vastly different prices for interior and exterior paint. The difference in prices can be substantial.

I used to think that interior paint was a lot easier to buy but I recently found out that interior paint is not as easy (or cheap) to come by as exterior paint. 

The good news is that the interior paint you’ll want to buy has a long history of being used. It’s been repainted a number of times and is in good condition. Plus, interior paint is much easier to apply than exterior paint.

The exterior paint you'll want to use is pretty easy to get and a lot cheaper than the interior paint. If you think interior paint is hard to come by, you might want to think again. You’ll want to consider the color options, quality, and longevity.


Interior paint is generally regarded as the most difficult material to paint on a budget. This is because the interior of a house is a very different environment than the exterior. You can’t just paint over the existing paint, which can be a little messy if you do it right. Interior paint often needs to be done by professionals, and that means that you’ll need a lot of work.

The first thing we wanted to do with the interior was to paint over the existing paint and make the new paint match the existing paint. 

The first way to do this is to use a paint stripper. This is a tool that is used to remove old paint from wood. The stripper works by making a deep cut in the paint with a sharp blade, then applying this to the surface of the existing paint. The cut will then allow the new paint to flow over the old one.

If you do this, you will not only have a new paint job, you will also be removing the old paint over the old, so this will not be as messy as it sounds. Plus, the stripper is great for adding a touch of color to the old paint. After you have all the strippers put on the new paint job, it is time to sand it down to a smooth finish. Sanding is a process used to cut away any paint that might be sticking to it.
