My SO doesn't want to paint but I do, should I anyways?

I want to paint one wall in my living room to give it more warmth but my hubby doesn't want to. He HATES painting. I told him I would do it and he still says no because he'll end up doing it. What would you do?

  • Pain it when he is at work and make sure you do a good job so he wont feel the need to redo it. Chances are he wont even notice for several days.

  • Well, my husband said I could paint the kitchen any color but RED and when he went away on a business trip I painted the kitchen.......... RED of course! Good luck! Send him off to a game, somewhere for a day and then just DO IT! OH, by the way, my husband ended up loving the kitchen when he came home!
