You want it done right, then do it yourself.

because when you scrub a mark or stain on satin paint, you end up with a patch of eggshell. Better its all eggshell.

I think this is supposed to be funny, but all I see is shades of Jim Cramer.

Let’s be honest; there are probably a lot of people who would freak out if a bunch of Satinists showed up at their home.

Nah - I’d gloss over it.

I’d be walking on eggshells, myself.

Prime yourself in advance then all will be silk smooth.

I’d put out the welcome matte for them.

Eggshell finish is also easier for touch up you’ll have to do at some point down the road.

Paid mechanics to rebuild the front end on my car. They left out bushings on the swaybar, and a spacer on an upper A-arm.
I’ll be very wary about paying anybody to do anything again;despite paying at or above market rates; that I could do myself.
Fwiw - regular, boring front end suspension; no struts, nothing new or different since the dawn front ends; which for most purposes; really haven’t changed much. Shock in coil, control arms, sway bar; just standard boring too easy front end. Shameful quality. :I

The devil is in the details.

I just love that this show the kind of nerdy passion about a specific topic that people like Linus can get. Like, he’s obviously a PC enthusiast and knows more than I’ll ever know various tech related subjects. But that same level of knowledge and competency even displays when he’s ranting about house painting.

Also, ex-house painter could be interpreted in a different way.
