Another workshop project...

I went window shopping Thursday in the tool section and I don't know how it happened but a 18 gauge trim nailer gun and compressor followed me home... I just couldn't help myself.  I am obsessed with tools lately.  I just can't seem to get enough. 

To think a couple of years ago I was afraid to use a drill... now there is nothing stopping me.  After mastering the table saw it seems everything else is just a piece of cake.  The more tools I try the more I want.  The hardest thing I am experiencing is what to make with them. 

Right now I am just tweaking a few areas in my house and building things as I go.

I couldn't wait to try the little duo out... they are going to make my life so much easier. Putting things together
is now a breeze. 
This little ledge took about an hour beginning to end

I needed something on that wall that could hold some weight... 
note to self, cover those screw holes
 
I made the game boards a few years back and they never really found a home...

I also dug out this old telephone shipping box I have had on the top of my fridge...
it fits in perfectly with the telephone display.


this was the wall last week...

the wall this week... and who knows what it will look like next week...lol

What do you think?

Cost:
leftover wood - $0.00
leftover stain - $0.00
Total project cost - $0.00

You clever and talented girl! Come to my house and build stuff for me! I am not allowed to touch tools since (1) I am a royal clutz (2) I don't know what I am doing (3) my husband tires of fixing things for me. Ugh!

All I know is the drill and the power screw driver! I wish we had a power nailer.
Your corner is really looking great. I am loving it!

You'll never go back after catching this particular "bug".
Might as well buy some stock in Home Depot......

I love the ledge! That's a really great idea! Maybe I should make one to hang my paintings on? Much safer then screwing stuff into the wood panels of the painting! Ee.

Okay. While Glen is at your house working on you ceiling - you can come to my house and make some cupboard doors for me - deal? :) I am really impressed with your talent! Your corner is absolutely wonderful - those game boards are most definitely the crow's toes!

I love that corner Deb! If I had the extra cash, I am afraid many power tools would follow me home too. They were on my wish list for Christmas, but people didn't think it was right that I wanted tools. LOL What do they know.
