Learn to use power tools and discover just how easy and affordable DIY and home decorating can be!
Five years ago I bought an IKEA 8-drawer Hemnes Unit. I asked my husband to build it, but he was too busy. I didn't want to wait until he had time, so I decided to open that bad boy and assemble it myself. Five hours later, I had a dresser! (Whew!) Accomplishing that task opened up my eyes to the world of building and DIY. I realized that If I just take it one step at a time, I could probably do some seriously cool stuff!
I decided to build some shelves--that taught me how to really use a drill. Then I decided to build a lego organization desk for my son. That taught me to use a circular saw. Then I built some large storage shelves--which taught me to use a miter saw. And with each project, I learned so much about power tools and just how non-scary they really are.
The more projects I finished, the more I realized how many women are out there looking for a way to start using power tools to decorate their homes but not knowing where to start. So one day I sat down and started to write everything I knew about my tools and A Girl's Guide to Power Tools was born.
