Tuesday Tool Talk

It's time for another edition of Tuesday Tool Talk...and because I'm writing this late on Monday night and have to be up early for a meeting tomorrow morning, it's going to be SHORT AND SWEET!

I absolutely CANNOT be your friend if you don't have one of these.
All gals need to have an electric screwdriver around the house...AND if you're really feeling sassy, go on down to Jo-Ann Fabric where they have cute girly ones in frilly colors. I almost bought a second one just because I'm girly and love frilly colors...then I realized that would be stupid. I'll just wait until this one breaks, accidentally gets donated to the Goodwill, or mysteriously falls off my floor.

I use this little genius tool ALL the time. This weekend, I added this cute little pull to my trash drawer (possibly my fav part of the kitchen redesign, btw).
I also used it on the floating shelves from hell...these stupid things nearly made me give up any desire to be a DIY Diva ever again...but then I had a glass of medicinal chardonnay and I felt much better. PS - that autographed Wicked program is from my talented friend Alli Mauzey who is starring as Glinda on Broadway...pretty freaking cool, huh?!
I also used the tool on the new bath bar over my vanity.
Without it, I would have been donezo!

See??? There are a million uses for this little gem. Best part is, they're no more than $19 bucks at the bottom end of the line. Please, if you do not have one, go get one...because at the end of the day, I really need friends.

I will embarassingly admit to not having a small power screwdriver. We use our power drill that we use the same way. Since I don't like to drill and only use the screwdriver bits, maybe I'll pick up one of my own. :)

When we first moved into our house, I saw the across the street neighbor trying to install a light fixture in his brick with a screw driver just like yours. It was at that point that I knew DH would be helping them A LOT around the house. The fixture was ugly, so luckily they didn't get it up. LOL

I have one, but don't use it for such cool things! I think you should come over and teach me!!

Daughter of the King: You've got to break that puppy out! It will come in so handy on even the smallest of DIY projects! Once you get goin, you'll learn to love it!

Ahhh! I'm jumping up and down...well, figuratively speaking. I have an electric screw driver and I can't live without mine either. I'd love a real drill...and other grown up power tools, but that screw driver has been a lifesaver!
