(PS - aside from the finished product and gabbing with bloggers the nail gun was BY FAR my favourite part of the night!).
We started with a little get to know you, and met our Home Depot reps:
Our fearless leaders, Linsey and Kris
And the fun tools we got to play with:
My new favourite power tool - a nail gun. Have you used one?? They are glorious, so easy and SO FUN to use.
Ok...I get it, enough of the tools. Right, so now onto the fun thing we made - a flower box! The Home Depot reps helped us with instruction, and we measured, cut, drilled, countersunk, and nail gunned these puppies together.
I decided to stain my flower box (well, the Mr. stained it on the weekend - a role reversal from our usual process - this time I got to use the power tools, and he painted!).
And with the goods - the flowers!
A big thank you to Home Depot and Environics Communications for throwing this little DIY shindig!
