THE ALICE DRESSER REVEAL - fix it tip and favorite tool

I've used a lot of power drivers in my time
but the one I use now has been my favorite
for years. I first saw it in the hands of an
electrician and immediately asked about it.
It is cordless and rechargeable and also
light weight with good power. As soon as I
could I went out and bought one. It came
in quite handy for this dresser makeover.
I will share the what it is in this article.

TURNING A DESK INTO TWO BEDSIDE TABLES and painting them with annie sloan chalk paint

I found a solid wood desk on the road-
side the morning after we got home from
a 2 week vacation. It was a wonderful 
WELCOME HOME!!! I would never have
found the desk if we didn't have to go
back to the airport the retrieve our late
luggage. While boarding our plane back
east we saw through the window that our
bags were not making it on our plane, as
panic strikes and we asked the flight 
attendant what happens now.

It was also amazingly expensive but I wanted to work

projects I started. Next on the list was to finish the

My mother has always used old suitcases to store all
sorts of things, and the smaller ones are very useful in
tight homes like mine. I don't have a lot of them myself
but I do use everyone I have. I store favorite magazines
in one and books in another. I have all the glitter and 
glue for Christmas projects in a third. All my packing
stuff for shipping is kept in a fourth one. I like using
them because I can easily grab the one I need and take
it to wherever I am working. When you stack them like 
I have done they work well as a side table and it looks
pretty cool too.
