Worst job in the place: preparing for and painting a room.

Especially when you have to remove several years' accumulated crap first. The removed crap then competes with other accumulated crap for space, which, although temporary, is only grudgingly conceded.

The single silver lining: like a suitcase, when a room disgorges its contents, it never seems possible to get it all back in. This is a rare opportunity for getting rid of crap, each of which such opportunities should be siezed. Chuck it.
