DIY anniversary gift (post by husband)

best thing to surprise my wife with: something cute for the house. and that's exactly why i married her. by now she's shown our little one bedroom to the whole world, but there was one part that she kept hidden because it wasn't really worth showing: the medicine cabinet in our bathroom. seriously, go back and look at the posts. you won't see it. and that's because it's pretty ugly. it's one of those old brown laminate wood things that were really popular in the 70's. or maybe i should say it was...

while wife was off in the city with her mom, i took it apart and pried it off our bathroom wall, grabbed an old paint can, taped it up and got to work. she would kill me if she saw me bringing paint cans onto our hardwood that's why i've learned it's best to do home improvement projects while wife is away. or at least not looking. that way just she's pleasantly surprised at the end, not worried in between. plus it's much easier to ask for forgiveness than permission if things go south. but luckily they didn't and i didn't spill a drop of paint on anything.

happy four months em!
