He paints and changes the light fixtures to things I choose. We are getting our floors refinished he will help choose that color.

When we picked out paint for our house and stain color he gives an opinion but the final say is from me, it wasn't an issue. We're pretty good at working together. He has a ton of ideas for our backyard and that's all him - whatever he wants to do will be done. Picking out things for around the house... that would me me. :P

I talk to him about and overall color scheme and style, certain little ideas and focal points, when we both agree I get a budget and I go to town. If I blow the budget and I'm not finished (very rarely happens unless we miscalculate the price or forget to price a major component) we regroupd see what we have money to do and either adjust the budget up or wait a couple checks to save up the additional budget and complete the job. Usually we have some of the budget left over because I prefer DIY and being frugal. With any left over we add it to savings or go do something fun as a family.
