Home owner or renter, woman or man, there are a few tools every home should have. Want to decorate your home with art work, hang a mirror, install a floating shelf ?
You'll save money and time in the long run by doing it yourself-the right way. I've compiled a short list of the basic tools, that I use the most in my home. Tools can vary in price, depending on quality, but most of the items here are relatively inexpensive. The Black & Decker cordless drill actually was the most costly at around $60.
1. Picture Hangers-"Ooks" Professional Picture Hangers are my faves, but any brand will do. In desperate times a good old nail may do the trick!
2. Power Drill- Elbow grease optional. Great for tightening and loosening screws with ease! I bought a cordless style drill because it was smaller and easier to store. Since I'm not tethered to the wall I can do projects anywhere in my home.
Not So Common Knowledge: Drills and bits are sold separately. You'll need to purchase both in order to work on projects with varying surfaces.
