Are you ready to Bejeweled?
I would like everyone to meet Chelsea from Bejeweled. She makes the cutest and I mean cutest watches! I bought one from Chelsea... O.K. O.K I really bought two! Girls can never have too many watches, right?
I actually bought this one!
Not only does she make these watches, but she also makes rings, earrings, headbands, and bracelets. She has some of the neatest jewerly!
So what are you waiting for? Please go and visit Bejewled, and tell her I sent ya!
Now for the power tools! Let me just say I'm in LOVE with power tools!
This is my very first project using power tools all by myself. Let me emphasize by MYSELF! I’ve been around my husband’s tool for a long time, but really never used them. I have been intimated by them!
I’ve seen so many projects by all of you wonderful ladies out here using power tools and I said “I will not be intimated anymore.” Thank you all!
Do you want to see what I did? This was done under the watchful eye of my hubby! I had to sit for 3 bazillion hours listening to instruction on how to use each tool correctly and SAFELY! (love ya honey)
What I used!
1-2x4 from Lowe's. We had another 2x4 at home!
4-fence post toppers
I came home from work the other day to discover this!
I told Steve (hubby) that I planned on making this by MYSELF!
What Steve did was cut this 2x4 down to the size. He used wood glue to put them together! It's the only thing he did! That is why there are no pictures!!!
I ran the 2x4's (glued together and dried) in the jointer. This makes the edges flat!
I ran it through the table saw to make them both the same size! Steve did help with this part. Do you see how high that blade is? (Can we say intimated?)
Now that all the wood is square it's time for wood puddy! Put the wood puddy were you can see the joints.
After the puddy dries sand!
I also sanded the fence post toppers, so the paint would go on better!
It is now time to put the fence toppers on the finished post!
Use a small amount of wood glue and attach it to the post!
Once the glue is dried, screw in a screw! (don't really know why, but that was from the watchful eye of Steve) Did I tell ya? I had to listen to 3 bazillion hours of how to work each tool?
Now all you have to do is prime and paint! I didn't need Steve's help for that!
So what do you think?
Total cost $5.00 each!
You can also buy some 4x4 (the 4x4's are a little more expensive than 2x4) and cut out all of this, but most 4x4s are treated for outdoor use which is why they cost more!!! I had a fun day with Steve even though I spent 3 bazillion hours listening to him about how each tool worked! Steve's motto safety, safety, safety!
I first saw this at Fab to Drab! You have to take a look at all of their chunky candle sticks! Thanks for the inspiration ladies!
