Oh I am so glad you stopped by. The Nice to Meet You Gang is linking up today with the question:
What are your 6 Favorite Tools or Products?
1. Primer- Gesso, and Spray Paint.
Gesso is artists primer, it is made from glue and white paint. You can prime anything with it, it's super thick and opaque.
Transforming junk to stylish treasures usually requires a good coat of primer.
2. Martha Stewart Living Metallic Paint
This paint is awesome, it will cover over anything, and it is super opaque unlike most metallic paints. It is more like brush painting with spray paint.
3. One Wire Layered Cake Cutter
I don't own one of these, but I used a friend's this summer when I made my birthday cake, and it was revolutionary!! I love an evenly sliced layer cake and it is nearly impossible to do without this tool!
4. Sewing Machine
Singer 1507WC 8 stitch sewing machine.
I paid around $100 for this machine 5 years ago, and I have used it to sew lots of curtains and drapes, a quilt, clothes, and countless small objects. It is such a trouper. Light weight enough to travel with me, and simple enough that I was able to teach a child how to sew using it. Oh and it is SO easy to thread, which is important if you are a beginner.
5. Cordless Drill
We selected this drill primarily because it was less than $90, but LOVE it because of the carrying case, extra battery, and magnet on the base to hold your screws or extra bit while on a ladder.
6. Variety of Drill Bits
Ryobi Straight Shank Drill Bit Set (90-Piece )
$30 and Has everything I have ever needed and more for my DIY and home improvement projects.
It is way more fun if you play along too. You have all weekend to link-up, so don't panic.
