In List Mode for Undercover DIY week!

In six weeks hubby leaves for LasVegas for a work conference! 

Which means I will be in DIY mode ALL WEEK! 
Can I get a whoop!

I have been busy making my secret list of things I want to get done sans hubby!

He likes to get his hands dirty and get our never ending list of things completed, 

but lets be realistic....

He is a bit of a detail, disect, lets make a road map three times over before it even gets started, type of guy.

We don't mesh. 

Thank goodness for conferences, that's all I can say! 

A few things I know are top priority for me,

-------> Finishing our drop ceiling off. We have a few pieces missing waiting for duct work to be dropped down to meet it. 
Cambridge White ceiling tiles from Home Depot

---------> Digital Thermostat moved to a different location to be ready to paint our living room accent wall. 
Speaking of which, I love this accent wall. Its not a typical location when talking accent walls, but they have definitely pulled this off! {via Pinterest}

----------> Finish installing our gas fireplace top...right now we have our venting pipe exposed.....for three years....{ we won't go there, that's an entirely new post}
Combination of wood and brick. Two great textures in one design makes for  a nice balance. {via Pinterest}

-----------> Install NEW LEGS on my Kijiji find nightstands to raise them up higher to the height of our mattress.
See the distance in height? Much too short. My plan is to find wooden, flat side balls to raise it up! 

-----------> Install mirror surround in both bathrooms!
From House of Smiths! {Have you been to their site? B-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l!}

All items that he thinks we need to 'take time to do'

I can't wait to see his reaction!
