Got up early intending to get to the new house before new appliances were delivered so I could paint the hood and back splash for the range. Right after I bought the paint, the delivery guys called to inform me they were on their way. So I didn't get it painted until after they left. I also got sun block curtains up in the sewing room to lower the heat sent in by the sun.
Really, my man is nowhere near college age. He's just a huge football/basketball fan.
The best part of the hood/back splash project? Cost: 92 cents!
