As you might have noticed in most of my house photos, I am not a very big fan of curtains on windows.  I am more of a plantation shutter kind of girl.  Or, if possible, I much prefer to leave the window bare naked and let the sun shine in!  A quick flip through any dwelling magazine these days tells me that I am not alone in this trend.  Bare windows are rampant!

Remember how I told you guys that I have been asked to be a part of the True Value Blog Squad this year?   One of the first tools that I knew I wanted to buy as a blog squadder was a lightweight, battery operated screwdriver for overhead jobs.  I wanted one that was not going to make my arm ache if I held it over my head for long periods of time.  Enter the Skil 4V Max Lithium Screwdriver.  This cute little tool fits in the palm of my hand so she is perfect for small jobs that don’t require any heavy thrust.  She’s also super lightweight, so this is the perfect screwdriver for hanging curtain rods.  I love this screwdriver! We added a new café rod and hung the new shade in just a few minutes.
