It’s the chicken or the egg dilemma. This Old House says either way is okay. Most sources say floors first. My husband is doing paint first.
If you install the floors first, you stand to damage the new paint job. If you paint your walls first, you stand to drip paint on your newly finished floors. Floors are expensive, but walls are not.
Which do you prefer?
There are lots of things in life where we must make a choice. Pick one thing before another. Some matter. Some don’t.
One thing we all need to pick first is Jesus. And then nothing else matters after.
Let’s all pick Jesus. And if we need to do some touch ups on the paint when all is said and done, so be it. No need to sweat the small stuff. After all, we’ve got the best carpenter there ever was and ever will be on our side!
But seek first the kingdom of God and his tighteousness, and all these things will be provided for you. Matthew 6:33
Love and laughter,
