When the cat is away...

the mouse will paint.

Brad can't stand it when I do this, but I love to surprise him with a paint project when he comes back from an out of town trip.

Looking back at a few of my more bold attempts, I can see why he might get nervous, but this time I think it turned out ok.

When he and Kilian return from camping with the cub scouts, he'll get to see what I worked on a few hours ago. Whether he likes it or not, he can't complain about the cost. This was leftover paint from my parents' garage!

I almost forgot to take a "before" picture.




After
Now to find (or make?) some curtains...
