Honey Do This List

We have tons of stuff to do at the new-old house. I am super excited about it. I have started working on a list for Mr. Sass. I plan to document our work here, plus I'm going to need some pointers and ideas-

  1. Paint kitchen cabinets

  2. Paint bedroom (or not)

  3. MAJOR landscaping- we will have to hire someone to do this

  4. Tile bathroom counters

  5. Tile kitchen counters

  6. Replace living room ceiling fan

  7. Build new deck

  8. Build shop

  9. Hardwood floors in kitchen & living room

  10. New bathroom sink hardware

  11. New door knobs throughout house

  12. Paint exterior & trim

  13. Finish basement room

Lofty goals, no? I really need to find some pictures of kitchens that I like as we will be painting cabinets this weekend. I can't decide between black & white. Our walls are latte from Sherwin Williams and the hardware is polished silver. Pointers and ideas are welcome. I will get some before pictures ASAP. We will be putting hardwood on the floors and tiling the counter tops. Eventually.

The guest room aka Lil Miss Sassypant's bedroom is a BRIGHT lilacish purple. The room was done in hot pink & black at the other house, which I loved with all my heart. I(Mr.Sass) either have to paint the bedroom or change the motif. I'm kinda liking this purple, black & white room. I'll just tell ya. it's really growing on me. What do you think? Our furniture is white. I'm pretty sure Mr. Sass would be stoked to mark this off the list without having to do it.

From Pottery Barn...The walls are almost exactly this color.

Over the weekend we changed out all the cabinet hardware in the bathrooms and kitchen, replaced vents throughout, changed out door knobs & deadbolts on the front, back and garage door, replaced the closet organizers and racks & pulled hideous trim off the top of the kitchen cabinets. I use the term "we" loosely since mostly I just watched Mr. Sass. I could have helped, but why would I want to slow him down? The man is handy to have around. I should be shot for not utilizing his mad skillz more often. My dad says there is nothing Mr. Sass can't fix. Dad, on the other hand, notsomuch the handyman type- Probably the understatement of the century.

Wow. I am super impressed with Mr. Sass. Does he have a handy brother? Oh wait. I'm married. And I guess he's an ok handyman. I guess I'll just keep him for a little while longer...until he quits fixing things.

I love that pretty room. Can you come paint our guest bedroom please? Thanks.
