I think it’s so important to have good tools so you can fix things without having to hire someone else to do it AND you can do fun projects, too!


1. Hang up artwork around the house with nails and a hammer.

2. Reupholster a chair with your electric drill and some fabulous fabric.

3. Use nails for a rustic key hook around the mud room or kitchen!

Also don’t forget to invest in a good level (electronic ones are great!) to make sure you are hanging up things straight.
