Matt may not realize how great he is at household projects, but I do. He has built several shelves for our bedroom, den and living room - and they look really good! When I tell people he built them from scratch they're like "wow, my husband could never do that!"... And I just beam, cause mine can. We have a running list of DIY projects that we'd like to do around the house and we try to mark off one or two a month. Recently we started Milo's nursery.
One of the other projects he's working on is a "clubhouse" for Cady. She has wanted a clubhouse for FOREVER. You may think she is too old for one, but it's actually quite the opposite. It will be big enough for her and her friends to hang out in and sleep in (if they want) and a private place that she can go to read or craft or whatever. We are going to make sure she gets electricity and some cute "small size" furniture for the inside.
And just so you don't think I'm getting all braggy on Matt and his home improvement skillz... Here's a pic of him after he made some repairs to one of our bathroom ceilings the other day. hahahaha! I think it could have gone better "during" but the ceiling looked great "after"!
