Now, we are first time homeowners and all we had was a ladder, a small tool kit, and a drill. So, to the hardware store we went! We bought:
- a hammer (hey, you have to start somewhere, right?)
- power sander
- putty knife
- drywall joint compound
- joint tape
Of course, we didn't think about transporting some of the larger items from the store to our house, like the drywall, which didn't fit in our small 4-door car :) My husband had a utility knife with him and was able to trim the pieces of drywall down so we could slide them in to the car. Live and learn right?
We framed in the new wall, hung the drywall, slapped on some mud, sanded, and painted! Not bad for our first project!
Project Cost $80.65
