if you give a husband a paintbrush, a wife is going to want to paint a room.
Before she can paint the room she's going to want to clean the room. Cleaning the room will make her realize she first needs to De-clutter the room. When she De-clutters the room she is then going to have a pile of stuff she wants to list on Craigslist. After she lists stuff on Craigslist and the room is De-cluttered she is then going to start painting the room. When she starts painting she realizes the room would look really nice with a border. She gets her husband to put up a border. While he's doing the border she is going to want to use the extra paint to paint the desk to match the room. While painting the desk she is going to realize she needs to organize the desk and the rest of the room. Organizing the room will make her realize she needs to go buy some organization stuff.
After the room is organized she is then going to want to decorate the room, which means she will have to go buy some new decor.
While she is buying decor she will get the idea to make some additional art for the room. When the border is finally done, she will hang the new room decor and touch up the paint in the room.
While touching up some paint on the ceiling she will get the idea to install a ceiling fan in the room.
which brings us back to the husband.....
