MY DIY ESSENTIAL (PLUS A DRILL GIVEAWAY)

Why a drill is my DIY essential (plus enter to win one yourself) on @thouswellblog

When it comes to DIY projects, I’ve had a steep learning curve. I can visualize a finished project, but getting from start to finish (especially in three dimensions) can be a challenge for me. I’ve timidly ventured into the world of DIY just a few times on TS, usually to share simpler projects, but I started warming up to power tools along the way. When it came to making these mid-century bookcases, or this desk with gold hairpin legs, a drill came in handy and made the projects so much easier. There’s only so much a screwdriver can do, and whether it’s installing table legs or hanging a wall mirror, drills make the task easy and do-able every time. My latest DIY project is another bookcase hack, but this time my project is a little more involved. I’ll be sharing all the steps in the next few weeks, as I wrap up the finishing touches, but I have a sneak peek for you today (involving my new compact Black+Decker drill)! Plus, enter to win a drill and circular saw at the end of this post.

Why a drill is my DIY essential (plus enter to win one yourself) on @thouswellblog

As you may recall, I had two GERSBY bookcases in my bedroom with light blue backs, and my little sister also added two to her bedroom. Her bookcases recently got an upgrade, and I was starting to get tired of the blue on mine, so I decided to combine them all together to form a wall of shelves behind my new desk. I chose a dark cool-grey and used my drill to attach them side-by-side. Since they’re IKEA pieces, they tend to warp a little, so lining them all up is not possible without the help of a drill! Now that they’re all attached, they’re also much sturdier. I’ll be refacing them with some wood, so stay tuned for more of from project soon! And don’t forget to enter to win your own drill below…

  2. I can’t wait to see what you do with these bookcases! I have a large bookcase hutch behind my desk and it’s super convenient for storage. I have the perfect project in mind for the drill giveaway. My husband and I want to build two hanging daybeds for our front porch. Maybe using an old door as a base?

    So – not to insult my fiance, but he is a pain in the butt when it comes to hanging my pictures and decor on the walls. I’ve always waited around for him to do, but I think this might finally inspire me to do it myself! (Then we won’t have all of these beautiful paintings just propped against the wall on the floor waiting to be hung!) Time to take matters in my own hands for sure.

    My favorite feature of this drill is that it is lightweight. I have owned a couple of drills before because I like to do things myself and not have to ask my husband to do every little thing for me. I had surgery on my right elbow several years ago and I am right handed, so the weight of a drill definitely makes a difference in what I am able to accomplish while using it.

    With all of the awesome tutorials available, I have become a DIY junkie. I would love to have this drill with all of its useful features! It has plenty of power but is still small enough to maneuver in tight situations – not to mention an LED. Also, because it’s made by Black and Decker, I know it is going to be good quality. I have the perfect loving home for this drill (and it’s siblings?). Another item to add to my “I Neeeed It” tool wish list!

    If I won, I know exactly what I would do-build myself a nice, large Tri-Loom. It’s a large triangle, with small nails around the perimeter (lots of drilling!), for making triangular shawls or woven triangles which can be pieced together for larger items. My very old drill isn’t up to the challenge, so I haven’t even started. AND, the cuts to the boards would be so much easier with the circular saw.
