I have a good friend who is always helpful and generous, and her kitchen REALLY needed painting. They had planned on remodeling and left bare drywall in places, but with 5 kids and a tight budget, remodeling takes a looong time. My house is waiting for a kitchen remodel too, which frustrates me. I offered to paint her kitchen, and the next week we worked together and blasted through it in two sessions (one included dusting and scrubbing above the cabinets and spot priming). Sometimes it's easier to swoop in and work on someone else's house than it is to accomplish tasks in your own. I felt great for being able to help her kitchen look better, and to give time to someone who is always helpful to me. It lessened the frustration I have about my own slow kitchen project...sometimes it is better to give than receive.
