Handymen come in two flavors…jacklegs and professionals. A jackleg is a fellow who may or may not be any good at what he does, and works under the radar of the prevailing codes and licenses. By day he may be a meek and mild mannered stock broker, but by night he becomes a fearless chaser of hair clogs in ancient piping. He may be quite good at what he does, but then again, he may not. Dare you take the risk?

If your trim is already painted your first step is to clean it, knock off any imperfections and determine what type of paint was previously used. Oil based paint can be covered with latex or acrylic if properly primed first, but you still need to know. A good test is to take a soft rag, dip it in denatured alcohol, and rub gently on the surface. If the paint comes off or is softened and color is on the rag it is latex or acrylic. If there is no color on your rag and the paint on the trim is unaffected by the alcohol, other than appearing brighter and dirt free, then the trim is done in oil based paint.
Both women agree that they have been very lucky and never argued about the fate of a painting that they were working on together. “They’ve never been a problem, though you might not believe that if you heard us talk to one another while we’re painting,” Dana said.

Once you have marked the box you will now need a measurement of your arms. Measure around your armpit. You want this spot to be the most comfortable because if you measure wrong the box will rub you wrong while your arms are poking out. Add at least 2 inches to your measurement. I have a 20 inch measurement so now my measurement will be 22 inches. Divide that into half (which mine would be 11) and cut out your circle for your arms. Use the same circle cutting technique that you used to cut out the hole for your head. Now your box is ready to wear. Try it on first so you can make any adjustments before continuing on with the painting.
I’ll leave my son my virtuous deeds behind;/And would my father had left me no more! For all the rest is held at such a rate,/As brings a thousand-fold more care to keep,/Than in possession any jot of pleasure. Shakespeare.
