Tool Talk Tuesday with Mrs. Limestone and Her Electric Staple Gun!

Not long ago, I stumbled upon a new favorite...Mrs. Limestone of "A Brooklyn Limestone In Progress." She's living my ultimate dream and renovating a home with her hubby! In every project and design photo I've seen on her blog, I can see her magnificent taste and flair. Each and every piece in her home is chosen perfectly and nothing was left to happenstance. If you haven't been over to her blog, read her guest post below, then go to her blog IMMEDIATELY!!!

Thanks so much to JJ for asking me guest post for Tool Talk Tuesday. While I do own a toolbelt (with my name on it no less!), I don't have loads of power tools filling my basement. I suppose I'm a woman of few gadgets. So rest assured I'm not shilling out just any old thing. This is the real deal.

Let me introduce you to my little friend....the electric staple gun.
My new toy - electric staple gun
Please note the telephone in the upper part of the photo. I kept it in reach in case I stapled my eye shut or some other such clumsy person accident.

If you have ever used a manual staple gun, you'll know they are just fine for one or two staples but much more results in a handful of blisters. No more! This thing can staple anything as many times as your heart desires at the pull of a trigger. And yes, its a hair trigger. Be careful ladies!

I admit I haven't done any wow worthy projects with it but it just makes a simple job so much simpler, its well worth the money. Case in point, I wanted to turn this large picture frame into a jewelry holder.
Office Accessories

Staple, staple, staple some cut screening....
And it was done and hung.

Or reupholstering the seat of an old chair.
A coat of paint, fresh fabric and an electric staple gun to the rescue.
And put into place.

It also comes in handy for party decorating! I used it to staple feather boas on a wooden ring to make this wreath

And to staple photos printed on vellum to make these photo centerpieces

Have I convinced you that you need one? Happy Stapling!

So, I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm completely jealous of her electric staple gun, as opposed to my manual one...or the fact that she has a tool belt on it with her name. I mean, I NEED one, don't you?!

Thanks again, SO MUCH, Mrs. Limestone for stopping by and visiting us today. Your projects are gorgeous and I just LOVE what you're doing with your home. The new coffee table is perfect and I can't wait to see more of what you're doing out there in NY!!!

You need a little pancake air compressor with a stapler you can use with it... because then you can also get a NAIL GUN to use with it as well. And you can use it to dust when you're feeling lazy ;)

Oh, yes, I NEED one. That's going at the top of my "Santa list."
Mrs. Limestone, what is that fabulous wall color in the room that you put the chair in with the new seat?
Oh, yeah, the chair is cool too. ;)

I love Mrs. Limestone. We became "buddies" when both of our custom domains weren't working and we were whining to Google. Her house is AMAZING! I die every time she posts.
