I was having one of those trimesters where I just had to paint something. Fortunately, I have a few walls in my house. I know I'm not supposed to inhale paint fumes, but the urge to redecorate is strong with this one. I borrowed some paint supplies from a neighbor, bought the lowest-odor paint I could find, and went to work. Note that I also picked the easiest wall in the house, the one with only one corner to deal with.
Of course, things are always easier in my head. I ended up having to buy more paint than I thought I'd need, and I really should have taped and sanded more than I did. But I wanted instant gratification, and paint is one of the cheapest ways to get it.
