What He Doesn't Know Won't Kill Him

This weekend, Mr. K is leaving me (again) to go to Sarnia which is somewhere (I'm unsure where) in Canada.  He wanted me to go with him, but I have a competition to attend with my little kiddos on Saturday.  I think I'll be sporting Ella in the Baby Bjorn as well... it's only 1.5 hrs and she'll enjoy the skating, right?!?  I'm still torn on that idea, but anyways... this means that for most of the weekend, I'm without a hubby! 

So... what he doesn't know won't kill him and I've decided on the projects to take care of!  He hates being Mr. Handyman so I have learned to ask him only on the things that he will actually help with and not tell him about the ones that will annoy him, like painting our bedroom, yet again. 

Yes, that's one of the projects.  I purchased paint samples this week at Lowe's and will be testing them out tonight and tomorrow.  I am going with grays... probably a trend, I know, but I'm trying to make my house flow and right now I feel the sage in our room doesn't go with the rest of the house and it's left me uninspired.  Mr. K will kill me for painting it AGAIN (3rd time in 3 years) but he'll be gone so he can't say anything... so long as I get it finished!

Another project is to frame out our mirrors... or at least our half bath mirror and our master bedroom bath mirror.  I found some great tutorials out there and am going to attempt to tackle this!  There are a couple of things I need for this and am going to go shopping tonight or early tomorrow. 

Purchase list for all projects:

(1) Paint - decide on a color and do it! 
(2) Miter Box with Saw - to cut the edges of the molding for the mirrors
(3) Caulk Gun - should make my life a lot easier
(4) Liquid Nails - to hang the molding
(5) Paintable Molding
(6) White Paint for Trim/Molding
(7) Clear Paintable Caulk
(8) Washers - to replace the plastic clips that hold the mirror up

Totals for the Mirror supplies are about $30 give or take and the paint will probably be between $40 and $50. 

So I should be taking this...

To something like this...

And this...

To something like this...


I'll share the progress next week!  Wish me luck!
