Nothin' Says "I Love You" Like a Dremel
Most ladies get flowers or chocolates for Valentine's Day from their sweethearts. My sweetheart knows me all too well...he knows that I'm a "project" kinda gal who doesn't mind pulling her hair back and getting sweaty and dirty. Well, this past Valentine's Day, my sweetie surprised me with the most romantic gift a man has ever given a woman...a dremel!
For the past month I've been refinishing an old china cabinet and hutch that I bought for $95.00 at the Habitat Resale Store. It is beautiful, but definitely needed a little TLC and a fresh coat of stain. I've been working really hard at stripping the old stain off, but was having trouble getting to all the little nooks and crannies of the detailed wood work. Come to find out there is this little tool called a dremel that is made just for that specific purpose...detailed sanding! I can't wait to see how the china cabinet turns out! And...thanks sweetie for the dremel...you are so romantic ;o)
