It was a busy and crazy weekend at the Delightful Dwelling. I worked on so many different projects my head is spinning. My house is a total disaster area, my car won't fit in the garage right now, and I have kitty paw print stains all over my carpet from a cat walking through a paint tray and then all over the house and furniture. But it's ok, because I'm having a blast and my house is getting prettier and more functional.
Several of my weekend projects were made possible by one wonderful birthday gift. A finish nailer. Some people thought I was crazy for wanting a power tool for my birthday, but my dad happily purchased me one for my recent 28th birthday. Here she is in all her beautiful and mighty glory.
Isn't she purdy? And yes, it is a she although I haven't given her a name. Dewalt brand tools on the other hand are boys, because only boys would wear school bus yellow and black together and still look cool.
This is the next tool on my "gotta have" list. I borrowed this compound miter saw from my in-laws, but I will have trouble giving it back. You can see a couple hints about one of our weekend projects in the photo.
Of course I couldn't have done it all without the help of Mr. Delightful Dwelling. When I could get him out from under his Jeep that is.
I might be a little slack in blogging this week as I try and finish up all my projects and get my house put back together again. I will be back with the finished photos and tutorials as soon as I can wrap everything up.
