It is the one year anniversary of owning our house today! Hooray! How the time has flown!
And, what better way to commemorate one's housiversary than to buy a power tool and fix sumpin'.
I have been staring at bare drywall and plaster for six months now and finally decided to fix those dang baseboards. A couple were destroyed in trying to remove them to prep for the floor so I finally sucked it up and bought me one of them there compound miter saws. Oh, yeah, baby. It was actually a pretty sweet deal - we got a couple gift cards for the holidays (thanks, Mom and Dad!) and used them to get the saw.
I will confess my deep, dark secret to you, though: I am a bit terrified of power saws of any kind. The only power saw with which I feel comfortable is the jigsaw - probably because it seems more isolated to one spot and it's just generally easier to maneuver. So I was a big wuss and had Thom do a couple of the cuts but woo-doggies, does it cut nice! After using the stupid miter box for the trim on the cabinets a few months ago, I totally see the wisdom, efficiency, and super awesomeness of the power miter saw. I can't wait to finish up this puppy and get the molding on!
Anyway, Happy Houseiversary!
