A Couple of "Honey Do's"

Mr. SS doesn't like lists, but if I gently suggest something I need done, he'll usually surprise me and start it when I'm not here.
That's what happened Sunday afternoon. I had emptied my hutch getting ready to put up Easter decorations and left to check out Home Goods. When I came home, he was painting beadboard in the garage.

Last year, I showed the backing for the hutch I had done on poster board with a Pam Kitty fabric. You can see that here . I still love that and can still put that up when I want to, but I think the white bead board will really show off  Easter and Spring decorations better.

We're going to be gone for a couple of days, so I won't get to decorate the hutch until I get back, but I'll be showing it off as soon as I do
Here's the other little "Honey Do" I had for Mr. SS. I got this lamp at Hobby Lobby with a coupon. It's really cute and just the right size for where I wanted to put it, but black with a tan shade and a brown cord just doesn't fit in my kitchen.
So, I asked Mr. SS if he could change the cord to a white one and I would paint the lamp base. Well, he changed the cord and painted it for me.
All I had to do was add a shade I already had. It's one of the chandelier shades from our big house. I covered 9 of these and have a couple in the little blue trailer. Sure glad I saved this one.
Here it is in the little corner of my kitchen.
See, the black and tan just wouldn't have the same effect.

It's just enough light at night so we don't have to turn the ceiling light on if we go in the kitchen.
Yes, I still have pink cabinets and pink grout. For now, I just decorate around them and someday, when I gently suggest it, Mr. SS might surprise me and start our kitchen remodel.

We are off tomorrow on a little road trip with our friends Dave and Gail to Temecula. Gail and I will get some antiquing in and Dave and Mr. SS will be golfing. Fun times with friends.
