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...

Oh yes, the kids were a huge help =)
