Helpful Hubby!

See him up there?
He is the most helpful Hubby! Along with his helpfullness, Hubby gives himself to me all day for my birthday. Basically, I GET TO BOSS HIM AROUND!

Remember when I had painted the upper fireplace white to match the mantel (way back in February), but lacked the finishing touch...trim? If not, you can see that post HERE.
 So I asked Hubby to cut and install the rectangle trim pieces needed on each side of the mirror above the fireplace mantel.
I decided to repaint the whole upper, so we took the huge mirror down...again!
After Hubby caulked the trim, it was ready for paint!

It is subtle

                 but looks...

                                                 oh so good now!
