When we first walked through this 70’s rambler 4+ years ago it was pretty tired and frumpy.
Little by little we’ve given it a face lift to boost it’s curb appeal.
For our ACE Hardware project this month we had the opportunity to tackle a project using a tool from ACE‘s Primo tool line. I’ve always loved window planter boxes and decided to make this a family project. The bedroom windows on the house are quite high which leaves a lot of brick real estate below.
Window boxes were the ideal solution to break things up a bit.
For this project I used the Craftsman Magnesium Staight Finish Nailer.
I don’t know how I’ve lived without one of these for so long. I normally am hammering nails in, smashing fingers and bending nails. This tool sped up the process 100-fold!
This man even jumped in and learned some wood working skills.
I love them so much I’m planning on making some window boxes for our shed…tutorial coming soon.
Constructing the boxes was the easy part…working my green thumb and keeping the plants alive is going to be the real challenge.
Next up, replacing those 35+ year old shutters.
Now for the really exciting news…one lucky reader will get a $100. gift card to ACE to tackle their own spring projects around the house.
To enter, go to ACE’s website HERE and browse around then leave a comment in the entry form (below) letting me know what you would buy with $100.
As always, I’ve given some bonus entry options also.
