Weekend Project

By | 8:25 PM 12 comments
I woke up Saturday morning and said to myself, "Self, lets makeover the fireplace today."

It was about this point that I realized that self and I had better inform Jeremiah of his new-found plans for his Saturday =)

Since he had a middle school boys campout to get to and I only had the use of his massive muscles for a few short hours...we got right to work. I went off to Lowes to gather supplies and left him to "prep" the fireplace and entertain the kids.

Side note: I love the way Lowes smells =)

Somewhere between when I left and I got home...Jeremiah decided that it was a great idea to repaint some of the spots in the bathroom that had needed touching up.

Now, I probably wouldn't have encouraged this...seeing as how we were now very committed to the fireplace project...and cramming another project into our very short timetable was a tad bit overwhelming to me.

But hey, when the man gets motivated, just get out of the way and let him go! =)

Without further ado...

The during shot:

Oh yes, the kids were a huge help =)

And finally...the after shot:

ps I love the way Lowes smells too...i don't know why though because it's an odd smell. But, it never fails, right when I step in the door, I take a BIG sniff! Kinda like in a shoe store! :)

I guess I'm gonna have to go to Lowe's and sniff the place. I was there over the weekend and I love the place, but I have to admit I've never noticed the smell.
