Regardless, I finally just decided to buy some fake plants. After all, maybe these plants will be motivation to try AGAIN and actually keep one alive. Maybe?

Here are some cute modern artificial plants if you have a black thumb like me.

5 Tools Every DIYer Needs (these are the only tools I own):

***RYOBI is having a BUY a tool get one Free at Home Depot. Check out this link for details.*** Here are some Home Depot deals below.

You can get this drill and nail gun kit combo for $51 off. The nail gun is battery operated and doesn’t even need an air compressor. I use a drill and nail gun on almost every project.

Here is a miter saw for $100 off. It can even slide to accommodate wider boards. I use one to cut all my boards.

 Electric Sander: This sander makes smoothing out wood, sanding off wood putty, and all finishing aspects so much quicker.


Kreg Jig(Optional but LIFE CHANGING): This tool is so cool because it allows you to attach boards with hidden holes so the finished project looks nicer (and it makes joints stronger). This is a must if you ever get into building built ins or basic furniture. This is the exact set I’ve had for 8 years and loved.
