What My Husband Did On His Vacation

If I had a random vacation, I think I would spend it reading and sleeping. Maybe I would do a little writing and a little cleaning here and there so I wouldn’t feel completely worthless.

My husband? My husband lines up a bunch of projects to complete and ends up not getting any rest all all. The upside is that the changes look great! The downside is that it’s like he didn’t take a vacation at all.

He repainted the main areas – living, dining, kitchen, hallways – in Benjamin Moore Coventry Gray. My picture is crap, so excuse me. I’ll post a better one later.


In order to do this he had to take down about a million shelves and pictures and put them back up.

He also installed a tile backsplash in the kitchen:


We bought it from Lowe’s. I don’t remember the brand but the color was Coastal Blend.

The biggest change was our bathroom. He tiled the floors, built and installed wainscoting, and repainted (remember the orange walls??). This color is Sherwin Williams Sea Salt. I like it enough to possibly use it in the (still unpainted) spare bedroom. We used Cream Delight by Valspar for the wainscoting and trim.


I am tired just looking at all of this.
