Getting Crafty with Craftsman

A couple of months ago, Craftsman contacted me to find out if I would be willing to review one of their products.

Um, yes please!
It was fabulous timing too because Zak's drill (manufactured by another company which shall-not-be-named) had completely given up the ghost only days before.

Soon after we moved in, we received the mother of all drills from Craftsman---the C3.
Right away, Zak got started finding excuses to use the new drill.

Of course we had to put together our art/Tot School cornerand our bookshelves
Drilling is so hot.

The bookshelves are from IKEA (they are the STRIPA shelves, though I can't find them on the website anymore-the RIBBA shelf might work. Check your local store.) These shelves are great for books because they serve the same purpose as gutters, but are more aesthetically pleasing and cheaper. Just in case you are wondering-the books don't slide off because there is a little lip on the front of the shelf.

But we didn't stop there.

During our last trip to IKEA, we were hanging out in the as-is section (my favorite part of the store) and discovered a glass cabinet door that had been discarded among the scraps of lumber.
Instantly, Zak put it in our cart (not an easy feat with two squirmy children).
We brought it home.
Drilled some holes.
Added cute children (though not professional photos-they will be replaced soon!).
And hung it on the wall.$10 for a custom frame!

I have one more home project that we just finished Saturday (with the help of Craftsman), but I'm so proud of it that it deserves its own post.

So ladies, if you want to make your husband happy this Christmas, buy him this drill. With 19.2 volts it'll make him feel so powerful that he'll be begging for "honey-do" projects!
A win-win situation.

Zak's testimonial (I asked him to describe the drill in ten words or less):
Easy to handle, powerful, and manly.

If I'm going to be Manly, I guess I'm going to have to get me a drill. Oh - wait - I already have one. I've been manly all along!

Adam would totally love that drill. His current one is kinda pathetic. I want those gutters so bad for my kids room!

I am waiting for the other post!:)
