Updates + Brad/Finish Nailer GIVEAWAY

February 25, 2011

I’ve finally come up for air after yesterday’s photo shoot, what a great day!  It was a fantastic experience and I snapped a lot of ‘behind the scenes’ pics.  Don’t hate me but I’m actually going to save the story until the ‘Christmas Ideas’ issue hits the stands ~ it will just make more sense when you see it in print.  Besides, who wants to see Christmas pictures right now?  Not me!!!

A big thank you to all of you who left such encouraging comments, and to the amazing BH&G team: Gayle (the stylist), King (the photographer) and Anne (the editor) who helped create some real magic around here.  I just can’t wait to see it all in print for the 2011 holiday season, you’re going to love it! 

The winners of the Kahili Creations giveaway are  #203 Megan Clark and #909 Karen Jerread ~ congratulations! 

Last weekend, we made some great progress on my boy’s room, installing some board and batten along his walls, it’s looking really fantastic.  I really love the tall white wall treatment contrasting with the intense teal blue walls, can’t wait to reveal his room when it’s finally done.

Two power tools that we used to get the job done were the Campbell Hausfeld 18 gauge 2-in-1 Brad Nailer & Stapler and the Campbell Hausfeld Angle Finish Nailer. 


The 2-in-1 Brad Nailer uses nails measuring 3/8” to 2” but also works with staples from ½ to 1 ½” and it only weighs 3 pounds.  I really love this nail gun and stapler!  I used it on January’s loft wall transformation and board and batten project.  I’m going to use it next week to build a shelving unit in my boy’s room and also reupholster a chair.

This is a small brad nailer that for its size packs a lot of power.  This nailer is perfect for doing small DIY projects around the house like recovering a chair seat, adding new trim or wainscoting, or smaller wood or craft projects.  This nailer/stapler is (dare I say) ‘chick friendly’ meaning there’s no need for any gal, even if you’re new to DIY, to consult a dude on how to use this nail gun.  Don’t be intimidated !!  Once you get the hang of it, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.

ch brad nailer compressor

Best part?  This nail gun comes with a 1 gallon compressor that plugs in and is ready to go in about two minutes.  My only criticism is that it’s loud when that tank is reloading  every five minutes or so, but the portability of this compressor makes up for the sound.  No heavy lifting required, it’s very lightweight and simple to use, you just plug it in, easy enough for even a DIY novice.  The oilless compressor also inflates bicycle and car tires, so it’s very handy around the house.  You can increase or decrease air pressure with the regulator knob. 

campbell hausfeld finish nailer


We also used the big gun (seen above), the 2 ½” Finish Nailer (Model #CHN70600) for the baseboards and top rail, and we plugged it right in to the 1 gallon portable compressor.  This Finish Nailer has a built in stud finder and nail placement laser pointer which are handy extras.  This one weighs over 5 pounds, so it’s beefier but it packs more power and shoots bigger nails.  This finish nailer says it will work at 70 psi (pounds per square inch), but to fully drive in the nail, your psi must be set at at least 90.  No biggie, just crank up your regulator knob.  This finish nailer is better for projects like crown molding, baseboard, or building larger pieces of furniture, and another great power tool to have in your collection. 

What about you?  Could you use a new brad or finish nailer around your house to help you complete a few projects?  Know someone who’d love a cool new power tool? 

The kind folks over at Campbell Hausfeld are offering one winner their choice of the brad nailer/compressor combo OR the Finish Nailer (no compressor included). 

Winner’s choice! 

Need to do some trim work around your house or install some wainscoting?  Want to recover some chair seats or make an upholstered headboard?  Choose the brad nailer!   If you want to install some crown molding, add some built in bookshelves, or even build some larger furniture, then pick the the 2 ½” Finish Nailer!  

Eligibility to win either the brad nailer/compressor combo or the 2 ½” Finish Nailer:

1) Answer this question:  What DIY project around your house would you complete with a brad or finish nailer?  Simply leave a comment.

2) For additional chances to win, link to this giveaway on Facebook, or tweet about this giveaway on Twitter, then leave another comment telling where you mentioned it (FB and/or Twitter).

Giveaway ends Monday February 28th at 8 p.m. PST.  One winner only.  Winner chosen by Random.org. 

Good luck my friends, wishing you a fabulous weekend!

  1. AmandaT says:

    Yes, please! I’m dying to put up crown moulding in my great room. It’s so boxy without it. Of course my husband insists I try it out in the powder room first, so crown moulding and chair rail (maybe wainscoting?) in the powder room! The thought of doing it *without* a nailer is terrifying.

  2. Ellen says:

    I would use this to start working on my kitchen! I plan on buying one this spring.

  3. Nadine says:

    Would love to give it to my husband!!! He will be redoing our kitchen and this tool would come in handy!!

  4. Cindy M says:

    Wainsotting my stairwell and second story landing and gameroom! The walls are high and BORING!!! This would make it look BEAUTIFUL!

  5. Julie says:

    Seriously? It would get a TON of work around this place! Crown molding, Ana White projects, etc. It would have come in very handy for the new headboard we made this week – I think even you’d be proud! You should pop over and check out the pictures if you have a free minute! :)

  6. Sara says:

    OMG I need this in my life. My fingers are cut, my ego is bruised and I’m only halfway done my nail head trim on my headboard. (Which is just how my husband felt when he tried to do trim work without a power saw or nail gun) Thanks for the great giveaway

  7. We’re working on the basement so I’d definitely use it for that!

  8. I’d love that brad/nailer! And to be honest, ever since I saw your idea of board and batten, that’s the project I want it for. Also, I want to put in some wainscoting in my small bathroom, and and and – there’s no telling. I’ve always got a project going and this is on my wish list already. Thanks for the giveaway. Robin

  9. Allyson says:

    WOW I wanna put up crown molding maybe do board and batten, I am sure I could find something to use this for! AWESOME giveaway!!

  10. Nicole Rogers says:

    My husband and I have been wanting one of these! We would be able to finally get the trim put up in our bathroom and refinish the cute bench my mom bought me at a yard sale last summer!!! Oh yes, we would be productive!!

  11. Adrianne says:

    We’re looking at a new addition onto our house so that would be very helpful for the many miles of trim to put up. Thanks for the chance to win!

  12. Brandy says:

    I would love to update my bathroom!

  13. Marisa says:

    I’d love to try a board and batten project myself – thanks for your helpful tutorial!

  14. Brandy says:

    Linked to Twitter @butrfly9

  15. Miss Thrifty says:

    My dream is wainscoting in my entryway…

  16. Heather says:

    So I just found out about a really cool upholstery class in my area, and I would love to learn how to re-do some chairs, but I don’t have the necessary equipment. This would be great!

  17. Erin says:

    Crown moulding for sure in my living room. Then on to a bed for my bedroom. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

  18. We’re always switching things up, so I think, after crown molding, we’d head to the mantle, and maybe spice up some door frames!

  19. Sherry says:

    We are having hardwood floors installed and then we will be replacing all the baseboards and trim in the house, a nail gun would be very handy.

  20. SheilaG says:

    Crown molding! Would love to have this to try some simple builds- well, not simple to me, but you know what I mean!

  21. Lara says:

    My husband and I are planning on putting up crown molding this summer throughout our house! I’ve always felt that a room isn’t complete without it. :)

  22. tammy says:

    my first project would be to finish the 9 chairs I have. yep 9, six dining room chairs, two office chairs and one bedroom chair. i’m crazy. lol

  23. suzanne says:

    We’re installing horizontal planks in our hallway this year, and a brad nailer would be so handy!
    Great giveaway~thanks for the chance to win!

  24. A tool like this would be a dream! My husband and I are DIYer’s who have done many of our projects the “old-fashioned” way when it comes to nailing. We pre-drill the holes and then nail – way too time consuming. We have been putting off creating a coffered ceiling in our dining room until we have the right tools. Of course there is also the matter of the garden shed we would like to build – another project which would be a whole lot easier with a nail gun! I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed on this one.

  25. jeannie says:

    Ooo crown molding in my living room. But the possibilities are endless!

  26. tammy says:

    The first thing my husband and I would do with it is to complete a handrail and staircase we are rebuilding. :)

  32. Saundra says:

  36. Holly says:

    I would choose the brad nailer and I’d attempt to make an upholstered headboard!! I’ve wanted to tackle it for a long time, and this’ll give me just the push I need :)

  37. LindseyR says:

  126. Michelle says:

    I have never been so excited about a giveaway on a blog! I think a better question is what would I not do around the house with this brad nailer? But I think that the first thing I would do is reupholster my dining room chairs.

  127. Jennifer says:

    I would love either tool so I could make a tufted headboard and I would love to also work on reupholstering a chair or two.

  128. Megan says:

    Ooooh! I have so many projects I’m dreaming of starting! I would definitely use this to build some planter boxes this spring, along with a wooden fence for our berry garden- to keep our dogs out!

  145. Erin says:

    I would love that brad nailer! My husband and I are expecting our first child at the end of March, AND we are moving into a new house at the same time. Probably not the best idea, huh? I am obsessed with putting wainscoting in the nursery after reading your DIY and that tool would just be great to get our son’s nursery up in record time.

  146. Laura says:

    I’d use it for my upcoming headboard upholstering!

  147. Ooo! I need this. The finish nailer. I want to tackle beadboard in the kitchen, but the thought of hand nailing finishing nails for the project is insane and makes me sick.

  148. Jennifer Hayes says:

    BASEBOARDS!!!! Not one single room in this house has baseboards. Grrrrr.

  149. Katie says:

    Ooo! I have some chairs that are begging to be recovered and I’ve been dreaming of creating an upholstered headboard for ages!! I’m also expecting my first child and have lots of diy ideas for the nursery… What a great giveaway!

  150. Lindsey says:

    I would use it to add trip to my upper kitchen cabinets, which are currently Trimless and super ugly! It would be a dream cone true to actually have my own!

  151. Ginger says:

    I’d get the brad nailer/compressor combo to tackle my sofa reupholstery projects! I have two that are partially done and this would help me finish them fast!

  152. Jennifer Hayes says:

    Shared this on Facebook.

  153. Jessica says:

    I’d love to finish laying floor in the attic. We’ve been nailing by hand so it’s slow going. Second project would be reupholstering some stools I got recently. :)

  154. nikki merson says:

    i know exactly what i would do with either of these tools: board & batten in my dining room! i can just picture the simple iron chandelier, the robins egg blue paint above the bright white trim!

  155. Jill says:

    I would use it to build a bookcase I’ve been dreaming about.

  156. Amber says:

    I would love to start building some furniture, starting with a play kitchen for my boys!

  157. Katie R says:

    We need to finish the trim around our new front door and also around several interior doors. Id love to not do them by hand/hammer.

  158. Christie says:

    I would love to do some upholstering!

  159. Tara Chandler says:

    I would love to use this to build some book cases and recover the ottoman stool in our family room we affectionately call Frankenstein.

  160. Melody says:

    The possibilities are endless! I would use it to reupholster a chair, make some big frames, add trim to some shelving, and fix a wooden chair to start. Thanks for the chance.

  161. Jen N. says:

    Due to many paint mishaps, the brad nailer would be awesome to help replace a lot of our baseboards.

  162. Julie says:

    I would finally get the trim back up after installing my hardwood floor and add crown molding.

  163. Kate says:

    I really really REALLY want to put up molding in our boring builder-grade house. Especially the dining room…then I just need a table and chairs :)

  164. Anne says:

    Oh…..how about everything!! Seriously! We just moved in and I’m dying to get going on fixing it all up! Although I am soooo anxious about it! Somehow the “Martha gene” just passed me by but you make it look almost easy! Thanks!

  165. Trina says:

    How exciting! We are looking to put some crown moulding up in our bedroom and this would be incredible to have! Thanks for the chance!

  166. Marla says:

    Oh I would love to win this. I have 3 chairs that I want to reupholster.

  167. Claire Splan says:

    I would love to build a wood facade for the side of my bathtub. This nail gun is exactly the tool I need to do it!

  168. Karen P says:

    I have wanted one of these for a while!! I would add wainscoting to my dining and living rooms.

  169. Colleen E says:

    the finish nailer would be perfect because I could replace the ugly baseboards in my living room!

  170. Allison says:

    I’d do board and batton all over my house, plus a whole slew of other projects. Thanks for the giveaway.

  171. nikki says:

    would like to do board and batten in the master bedroom and entryway

  172. Joy says:

    We’d use it for a few projects we already have started, like upholstering wing back chairs and building a cabinet.

  173. Kary Ross says:

    I live in a log home as designed by my husband and 2 boys. It has a basement that we have rented out to college girls for 15 years. Now we are re-claiming it as ours and I am going to convert it to my little “cottage” place. I would use the handy nail gun to install board and batten to the walls in the living area, kitchen, bath and bedroom and to recover our living room furniture. So I want to be able to do this project without my husband having to give of his time to this, another project!

    I shared to Facebook http://www.facebook.com/#!/profile.php?id=662497593 & Twitter http://twitter.com/?status=Updates%20%2B%20Brad%2FFinish%20Nailer%20GIVEAWAY%20http%3A%2F%2Fj.mp%2FdRUdii%20via%20%40AddToAny.

  174. Allison says:

    I linked to this on FB. Oh, hoping and dreaming and wishing…

  175. Christy says:

    definitely some chair rail trim!

  176. Gina says:

    My mantel is in desperate need of a face lift. I would love to make it larger with some great molding and that handy dandy tool would get the job done for sure! I would love to add a finish nailer to my tool closet! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity! :)

  177. Jenise says:

    Oh how I have been wanting a nailer! So many projects…where to start. My first island….beadboard in half bath….door headboard….and so much more! Thanks for the giveaway!!!

  178. Megan says:

    Oh, I want to build a media unit for my livingroom. This would SO get the job done!! (PS. LOVE your blog!)

  179. Oh, so many things I would love to use it for. I want to make a new reupholstered headboard and some board and batten in my master. Pretty, pretty please random number choose me!

  180. Michelle J says:

    I’m planning to add some extra trim and crown molding to my recently painted white kitchen cabinets. I’ve been looking at different nail guns but really haven’t wanted to buy a huge compressor. Good to know there are other options!

  181. beth says:

    Wow! talk about perfect timing! I was supposed to get a finish nailer for Christmas. Instead I got a new grandson! ( I spent all my Christmas money on my new baby boy) The finish nailer is what I need to finish putting up the crown molding in my just redone bathroom. Thanks so much for the chance to win this great tool!

  182. Rebecca says:

    Oh, man, there are so many projects I would tackle with that brad nailer.

    New trim in our living room, an upholstered headboard, and maybe I’d actually finish recovering the two chairs I have in the garage!

  183. EliseKayEm says:

    I would finish the trim in my kitchen and probably start a board and batten project!! :)

    Thank you for the AWESOME giveaway!

  184. Jill says:

    I would use it to install the trim and crown molding to our kitchen cabinets!

  185. Becky says:

  186. Brooke says:

    I would love it to put up some crown molding and board and batten in the hall.

  187. Naomi Osteen says:

    I would love this to start building new bookshelves, and my daughters have been after me to build them a play house.
    Love your ideas!

  188. Helen says:

    We would love to add some crown molding and wainscoting, so this would help tons!!

  189. Jami says:

    Oh my goodness! I would tackle the baseboards in our game room! Somehow when we got the floor put in they forgot our game room!

  190. Teresa says:

    I’d love to install a beadboard backsplash in our kitchen!

  191. Missy says:

    I am closing on my first house March 16th….I can’t even begin to tell you all the things I would use either one of these tools for. With everything going towards buying the house there is an unlimited amount of DIY projects that will need to be done!

  192. Vicki says:

    OH MY GOODNESS!! This is exactly what I need!! I am dying to put wainscotting in my dining room, but the thought of hammer and nails is a little intimitdating. I would love the brad nailer and compressor!! Thanks so much for the opportunity!!

  193. Vanessa L says:

    Build a window seat!

  194. kayduh says:

    My fiance and I are going to add 2 bedrooms and a bathroom to the attic of my house so we have room for him to move in. I would guess there are 1,000 projects that we could use the Finish Nailer to complete!

  195. Kelly Ann says:

    If we won this, the first thing we’d do is add crown moulding to our naked-looking living room.

  196. Whitney says:

    What a wonderful giveaway — I’ve been begging my husband for one for awhile! Board and Batten, Trim — what doesn’t need a update? :)

  197. Lesley says:

    I would love to install some crown molding but since that is unlikely I would use this tool for some reupholstering projects

  198. stephanie says:

    I would love to reupholster a vintage chair i have! and I tweeted this too! @funkeechkn

  199. Meghan Lewis says:

    I would use the nail gun to FINALLY make a headboard!

  200. Susan says:

    My oldest daughter wants an upholstered headboard and I want to reupholster a rocking chair and my stained dining room chair seats! I need the brad nailer! My husband will deploy to Afghanistan soon and I will need DIY projects to keep me sane!:D

  201. Allison Sandoval says:

    I just started doing lots of DIY around my house and have lots of projects I’d like to tackle….first up though, would be a new storage bed for my oldest son. : )

  202. Lynette says:

    Definitely crown moulding in the master bedroom!

  203. Susan says:

    I am telling all my FB friends that I need to win a brad nailer!

  204. Cass says:

    Oh my goodness-I would put up crown molding all over my house. It may be excessive but every room you entered would be completely done. :) Also I think I would use it as well to build an entryway system, like a Potter Barn look alike.

  205. S. HOOVER says:

    I would put crown moulding in the living/dining room :)

  206. Peg says:

    I have a half bath that would look great with bead board! The finish nailer would make that so much easier! Thanks for the chance to win one!

  207. Niki says:

    I have so much I would like to do with this! My monthly project in April is to refinish and upholster a bench that I have been meaning to get to for months. This would help greatly!

  208. I would use it for wall treatments in my daughters room… and any other project I can get my hands on!

  209. To say I’m dying to do tall board and batten in my dining room would be an understatement!!!

  210. Lisa says:

    I would use it to make large frames to make a feature wall in my dining room. Hoping to get that room underway this spring :)

  211. I would use it to build my kids a playhouse!

  212. Rebecca says:

    Right now, I’m putting trim and molding around our windows, and the finish nailer sure would make the job easier! I’m also eyeing our boring ceilings… thinking some crown molding would look nice. :)

  213. Ronda says:

    I have so many projects, which one would I do? Crown moulding in the master bedroom, trim out the windows and a wall treatment.

  214. Dana Stemig says:

    I would love to have this nailer because I think it would give my son and husband some incentive to help with my DIY projects. Also because I am envious of everyone on HGTV that has one. It has been on my wish list for a very long time. Two projects that I have in mind are building a pedestal for the washer and dryer. The plans are at ana-white.com and I absolutely love the look. The washer has finally died so I get to buy the new front loader and put it on this beautiful pedestal.

  215. Faye Marie says:

    I posted a link on my twitter… fayeray99

  216. Linked this post on facebook! : )

  217. Margo K says:

    I could definitely use it for a million things around the house but probably first would recover the dining room chairs. Thanks so much for such a generous giveaway!

  218. Ashley says:

    We in the process of putting up trim around all of our bare windows. One down, a million to go and no finish nailer! We NEED this!

  219. Annalea says:

    Wow. That little nailer is perfect! I know the odds are HEAVILY stacked against me, but somebody’s gotta win, so it might as well be me, right? lol

    As for a project . . . we’re about to start finish work on our carriage house (which we’ll be living in!), and I’d use it to do nearly everything we don’t need the big nailer for. (We already have a finish nailer and BIG compressor–neither of which I like to use.) So, the board & batten treatments in nearly all the rooms, upholstery projects for the window seats, building the cabinet doors for the storage cabs in the eaves . . . you get the idea. And since we’re doing this on a shoestring, free is the perfect price. ;)

    Thanks so much for such a great giveaway!

  220. Michelle says:

    Definitely some crown molding my room is screaming for it.

  221. mandi says:

    I would use the nail gun to add a chair rail to my daughters’ room!

  222. Ashley says:

    I twittered (?) tweeted (?) about the giveaway!

  224. Lorri says:

    What WOULDN’T I do??? We just bought our dream house – and I’m itching to dress it up! I really want to add crown and board & batten in a few rooms, make an upholstered headboard for our room and build a 2nd built-in bookcase in the living room. OH and make a window seat for our kitchen nook. Shall I go on??? ;) Love the blog!

  225. Stacy says:

    I would reupholster my barstools! It would be so nice to have my own tools!

  226. CT says:

    I would use it to reupholster my office chair and my living room furniture, and then I would put some decorative molding up in my apartment.

  227. Lorri says:

    Linked on FB also! Thanks!

  228. Rachel says:

    Um, should I just copy and paste the to-do list? Crown molding, window framing and sills are first on the list…I’ll spare you the rest ;)

    This is fantastic! Thanks!

  229. CT says:

    And I just Tweeted about it! goo.gl/m1h1s

  230. Rachel says:

  233. I would use it to install some beadboard on my kitchen ceiling.

  235. Wanda says:

    We have a lot of furniture (beds, media center, kitcken table, bed side tables) we want to build and it would make it so much easier. I think every room in our house needs something. Thanks for the chance to win one.

  236. I would put op new trim around all my doorways and add new baseboards!

  237. Lauren says:

    So many ideas…board and batten, upholstery, base boards, and the list goes on…

  238. Kelly says:

    Gotta have some crown in my dining room!

  239. Erin says:

    Would LOVE to have this! Getting ready to do some beadboard in the bathrooms and am always reupholstering something…my hands would love a break from the staple gun!

  240. Margot Perry says:

    I have several rooms around the house that I would like to put up some board & batten, especially the wall of our staircase. Having a nail gun would really make my life so much easier (& my projects get done quicker). Thanks for the giveaway!

  241. I would love to win this!!!! I have wanted to try doing some wainscoting in the bathroom!

  242. I have been needing to make my boys a bench to hold their shoes…this would be great!

  250. Laura F. says:

    I would love to add crown molding in the rooms where it is missing!

  251. star j says:

    I’m so ready to put up some board and batten in my bathroom.

  252. Kristen says:

    Shelving units for the kids, a bench, and board and batten would be a real possible DIY project if I had a great nailer

  253. Amanda says:

    We’re redoing an 1880s farmhouse and would use a new nailer in so many places! The trim. The bead board. The picture frame mouldings we’re going to install in the dining room. Our old nailer is on its way out so this would be PERFECT!

  254. Marissa says:

    I would use it for exactly what you did-tall board and batten, for my laundry room.

  255. Mary says:

    We have an old home which I would love to use the brad nailer to install gorgeous molding in the dining room. Also want to install some beadboard in a bathroom plus a million other projects in this old house so it would get put to lots of use!

    bee blessed

  256. I have been wanting one of these for quite a while! We will be installing crown moulding and this sure would come in handy.

  257. amy says:

    Oh wow! where do I start with my list of to do’s with a finish nailer, baseboards throughout my entire house, crown molding, Molding on bookcases, etc. My friend let me use hers a few months ago and I have been wishing for one ever since.

  258. Sada says:

    I pretty much love beadboard…everywhere! I can’t get enough of it! What a great tool! Thanks for the chance to win!

  259. CK says:

    I would be so happy to win either! The smaller one with the compresser would be ideal though. I am in the middle of several projects and keep wishing I had one! I really plan to make over my closet/office (yes, office in a closet).

  260. lara says:

    I would really love to build a farmhouse bed with my dad to give to my seven year old daughter. My dad had built a loft for me when I was younger and it meant the world to me growing up. The finish nailed sure would make the job easier!

  261. CK says:

    Did you see my twitter post? I really want to win! @ckohut:
    @CentsationalGrl This is great! Brad/Finish Nailer GIVEAWAY http://bit.ly/fAB0l9

  262. CK says:

    Ok, one more! See my post on my Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/CKsNest

  263. 3krazychics says:

    I would use it to put up the wainscoting in my son’s room and in my powder room that I’m getting ready to do. And I would love to crown mold my entire house.

  264. Kacey says:

    that brad nailer/compressor combo would be a dream come true! i could make my own frames…and we have some shelving to build…and i might even share it with my hubby! :)

  265. 3krazychics says:

    I also mentioned this on my Facebook personal website. http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=704807648

  266. Laura Thiessen says:

    I would reupholster some stools and redo my trim!

  267. Patrice says:

    Hello. I’ve been enjoying your blog through my RSS feeder for a long time now and am always inspired by your projects. The most frustrating thing about being inspired, though, is that living on a very small fixed income means I never have the funds for purchasing tools and materials necessary for trying some projects myself, (it took three months of saving before I could buy a glue gun, for instance), plus I’m physically limited as well. Then I read about this giveaway and started trembling with, well, possibility. Has that ever happened to you? I took one look at the brad nailer/compressor combo then read you describing its weight (doable, even for me!) and the ease of use and oh girl, oh girl, OH GIRL was I excited at the opportunity to enter my name into this drawing. I have two lovely, but somewhat decrepit vintage rocking chairs that I would LOVE to refinish and reupholster, but have always been discouraged by thinking about the amount of energy it would take to do so. Were I to win your drawing, I know for certain that I would find a way to tackle these two chairs and get a boost of encouragement and esteem at the same time. Sorry to be so long-winded here, I just didn’t know how to share my excitement in fewer words. Good luck to everyone who has entered, and thank you again for this opportunity.

  268. Heather says:

    I have started chair rail in my dining and living area, and need to finish it up. It sure would take a lot less time if I had a brad nailer. Then, I have plans to put up board and batten in my bedroom.
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  269. Heather S says:

    I have some fabulous furniture I would love to reupholster and this would be perfect for the job!

  270. Stephanie says:

    I cant believe im now looking forward to christmas!!! That will be a fun surprise!
    Ok…. I would totally love one of these cool guns!! We are living through a remodle right now and im working on the kids rooms! I could use this tool in finishing the built ins that im designing :)
    Keep up the wonderful work you are doing!!!

  271. I’d use it to install a chair rail as we update my son’s room to his “big boy bedroom”. =) And…TONS of projects down the road! =)

  272. Whoa. Would I like, love that brad nailer or WHAT?!? I’m a new DIY-er with lots of unfinished projects around the apartment and the brad nailer seems perfect for: replacing that cheap cardboard back of a cheap-o Target bookcase with a piece of plywood, recovering my Grandma’s old rocker that is currently in sad shape in my son’s nursery, and putting some trim up around a Craiglist find (a plain-Jane dresser). I’m a single mom and my money tends to go towards things like diapers and formula, so a giveaway like this would be my Christmas!

  273. Lisa says:

    I am wanting to add crown moulding and also a new fireplace inclosure…The nailer would make that job alot easier!!! Great giveaway and thanks to them for offering….us DIY’ers are drooling!!!

  274. Katie G says:

    Love you blog! So much inspiration, I can’t keep up with all your wonderful ideas/creations. I would use the tool to add crown molding to our living/dining room!

  275. I linked you up to facebook! Fun give away!

  276. Andrea says:

    I would love to finish a board & batten project around here. It would go so much fast with one of these!

  277. What a pretty nifty tool! Love gadgets that can be used for DIY! Have a beautiful weekend, Kellie xx

  278. Wendi says:

    What WOULDN’T I do!! :) Crown molding, shelves, wainscotting…..the list goes on.

  279. Susan says:

    We want to do some bead board in one of our bedrooms…right now it’s old paneling (painted) but I imagine the job would be MUCH easier with the Campbell Hausfeld. (who is that anyway??) In any case, we’d love to have that!

  280. Alyssa says:

    We are refinishing the trim in our house, and soon will begin installing crown molding. We’d choose that awesome Finish Nailer to get the job done faster!

  281. Lizzie says:

    Oh I would SOOO love to win this! I am wanting to do bead board in a few places in my home but there are dozens of projects I have lined up that I could use this on also!

  282. Crystal says:

    Oh boy, I have a laundry list of DIY that I would love to work on with the help of a brad nailer!! Thanks to the revamp of the entire basement, baseboards are to be replaced. Wainscoting in the dining room would look darling. Of course, my ultimate to-do: create a homemade upholstered headboard for my daughter’s twin bed we are planning to get her for Christmas (she will be three). I also have a rocking chair that I desperately needs some type of cushioning created for it, which I think a brad nailer would help just wonderfully :)

  283. Jill F. says:

    I have a little bench seat that I want to cover with some thick fabric and my staple gun doesn’t seem to be doing the trick. I would LOVE a brad nailer/compressor for this & future projects. Ooooh, and I just remembered another one: I have some decorative molding that I want to add to my kitchen hutch, so that would be another good project for it! (Fingers crossed!)

  284. Sandy A says:

    There are so many projects to do: reupholster chair, reassemble a table, shelving, trim, and so much more…

  285. Denise says:

    I would use it to reupholster furniture that I have picked up while out thrifting.

  286. Jacqueline says:

    I desperately need to redo my retro fabric rocking chair that I love but is worn through to the foam. I would also like to reupholster two round wicker backed chairs that were my grandparents from the 60s. Eventually, I would also like to make a simple sleek fabric headboard. Right now I am making do with one of those cheap framed closet mirrors spray painted and turned on its side.

  287. Mary says:

    Ohhhh…I’d love to win this! I’ve got an IKEA bed that I’m going to upholster and I’m wanting to create a new upholstered headboard. Once that’s done, the possibilities are endless! :) Thanks so much!

  288. Ken says:

    I would use the finish nailer to complete installing new baseboard. After replacing the floor 2 summers ago, the baseboard is banged up and need re-freshening!

  289. I so need this right now! I am redoing my office and will need all sorts of trim work to finish her up! Base boards, book case, bulletin board…the list goes on!!

  290. Denise says:

    Shared this giveaway on Facebook

  291. I would love to use it for some crown molding in the dining room. Make a headboard for my son’s room. Looks like something I can handle on my own too. Great giveaway, thanks!

  292. Would LOVE a brad nailer…hubby already has the compressor here, too!

    I have several items in my garage that need to be reupholstered. I would also find some other projects just so I could play with my new toy :)

  296. Allison says:

    I would love a brad nailer. I have already purchased some beautiful fabric to reupholster my grandmother’s chair that has been passed down to me. I have never reupholstered anything in my life but I am eager to give it a try! Thank you for the opportunity on your giveaway. I’m so glad you had a wonderful day with your photo shoot! I’m looking forward to seeing you in print when the magazine comes out.

  309. Tara says:

    First project I would do is finish my second bathroom that needs headboard on the ceiling. It has the trim done and then our compressor died leaving me with a 75% complete job and we just haven’t popped for a new compressor! This one would be perfect for me to use and do the entryway hooks and batten look next. Pick me. :)

  310. Sadi says:

    I tweeted it about the giveaway!!! I really want the brad nailer!!! You can see my tweet at http://travissadithompson.blogspot.com

  311. Lori Langberg says:

    Just the thing I need to get me started on the headboard project I have been dreaming about! What a great giveaway!

  312. Susan says:

    I’d put up some wainscoting and trim in my laundry room and then use it to finish some bookcases and the bed frames for my little boys! I was just telling my hubby last night that a nailer is at the top of my wish list.

  313. Ashley in Austin says:

    I want to install beadboard to the ceiling in my kitchen and make a murphy bed/built in bookcase for the spare bedroom. This tool would be perfect for sooooo many projects!

  314. Laura says:

    Right now I’m in a rental home, so no big projects in the near future. However, I’m sure such a tool would be handy for some decor ideas!

  315. Sarah says:

    My hubby and I are going to move into our first home.. On a tiiiiight budget and researching everything we can do on our own.. I would love to put board and batten in the 2nd bathroom and in the laundry room

  316. Amanda Bowles says:

    Oh, the projects I would do. I would LOVE a brad nailer… and I would love the finish Nailer! The decision would be very painful! I would love to reupholster my couch, build some book shelves, Hang Board and Batten in my hallway and I am currently debating on redoing our kitchen cabinet doors. This would help us make the decision ;-) . We just purchased a miter saw and I would love to play with molding more, Molding is a very rewarding project!

  317. Amanda says:

    Oh my gosh where do I even start? Thanks to your blog I have about 47 thousand things I want to do, number one being to make an upholstered headboard for the new king bed that hubby and I desperately need because when that 5:30 wake up comes (from our two toddlers!) there is not enough room for all of us in our current queen bed to snuggle.

  318. Tineke says:

    I would love to use this for a bunch of different home improvement projects…. I think I have a couple of reupholstery projects that this would be perfect for.


  319. Jessie says:

    I plan to put wainscoting (most likely board and batten) in the dining room. We’re also going to put up crown molding in several rooms.

    Love your blog!

  320. Kimberly says:

    I would love to try board and batten. We just moved and our house definitely needs some personality. I think B&B would do the trick!!!

  321. miranda frye says:

    I would install much needed crown mouldings in my dining room and guest bedroom/office. THEN, I would reupholster my vintage thomasville faux bamboo ottoman! Oh the joy!

  322. Lauren Lim says:

    I would put up crown molding in my whole house!

  323. Erika says:

    I’m up to my ears in a bathroom redo. I would be over-the-moon-giddy if I had the little brad nailer to put the moulding up.

  324. pogonip says:

    Crown molding in my living room and then my mom’s dining room, followed quickly by fancy wood cornices and casings for our windows, then…

  325. Alli says:

    Love to install some new baaseboards around here

  326. andrea says:

    brad/nailer please! i’m getting into reupholsterey this year, and it sounds like i need one of these. :) thanks for the great give away

  327. Maegan says:

    I have crown dreams!!!!! I’d love to make them a reality!

  328. Maegan says:

    Linked to my FB

  329. Because of you I have a million projects I need a nail gun for! Not want, NEED. And I could tell James Bond he couldn’t touch it without my permission because it would be MINE!!!!!! Insert maniacal laugh here.

  330. Rachel says:

    Oh yay! I really want to start (attempting) upholstery! I actually bought a small bench today from goodwill for 8 bucks and plan on making it into an upholstered seat for next to my front door :) So instead of my sketchy staple gun, id love to get the brad nailer/compressor! pick me, pick me!

  331. Nancy L. says:

    Wow! This is a dream giveaway! I have 4 chairs and 7 bar stools that need to be reupholstered.

  332. We have a room of that wain scotting in our living room & future grandchilds playroom. On top of another million things we need to do here.

  333. Becca Long says:

    I could so use this at my house! My husband and I bought an old house when we got married in 2008 and are remodeling it. This would be a giant help for us!

  334. Hilary says:

    Reupholstry projects. I want to recover chairs and make a fabric headboard.

  335. melanie says:

    If I won the nailer, believe me…I would be inventing projects to use it!!!

  336. Renee says:

    i would have boy friend put shelves up in the basement

  337. Marilyn Birdsong says:

    I would use the nailer on my fireplace. It is a corner fireplace and above the mantle is so plain. I would put up molding to snazzy it up. Love your blog.

  338. Sayra Chorey says:

    I would l build a upolstered headboard and/or lay some flooring in my pantry.

  339. I have a fabulous chair, a $0.99 Goodwill find, sitting in my basement, waiting for some love. A finish nailer would be awesome! Thanks for the opportunity and have a great weekend.

  340. Catie says:

    I would LOVE to have a brad nailer to do a few projects around my new house. I’m really wanting to put wainscoting up on the living room walls, and I can’t imagine how long it would take with a regular old hammer and nails!

  341. Robin says:


  342. Robin says:

    I’ve been planning some furniture making for ages and this would be SO handy!!

  343. Joni P. Lind says:

    I would definately tackle the crown molding and baseboards.

  344. Darlene T says:

    I would love that brad nailer! I have several projects that would come in handy for . . . a wing chair to reupholster, dining room chairs to recover, trim to put up in the dining room, drying rack for the laundry room and I’m sure I could “nail down’ ;) a few more ideas.

  345. Steph says:

    I have several DIY projects in the works right now, but the one that jumps to the forefront is the makeover of our guest bathroom. The brad nailer would be perfect for the board and batten installation in that room!

  346. Jennifer says:

    We are buying a new house and these tools will make all of our reupholstery projects so much easier. Plus, we are planning on putting picture frame molding up in our new dining room and these would be such a help!

  347. jennifer says:

    I have so many projects to tackle, and this would make attempting to reupholster a chair and doing wainscoting the the dining room, crown molding in the bath, on and on and on, a lot easier. Great giveaway, hope to win…

  348. Angie says:

    I want crown molding EVERYWHERE!

  349. Caro says:

    I need to build shelves in my sewing/quilting room. I have the basic set up organized but need more shelf space. Thanks at a chance to win.

  350. I desparately need to finish out our trim work, but hate trying to put finishing nails in baseboards because it kills my knees..having this would make my job so much quicker!

  351. My hubby and I have just bought what I have fondly named The Pink Monster. It’s a 1957 rancher and it needs lots and lots of love. I have plans to use your board and batten in a few rooms among other ideas I have found on your site and I am sure that this brad nailer would come in very handy. If you want to take a peek at The Pink Monster here is a link

  352. MichelleGB says:

    I would love to install some wainscotting in my bedroom – it has ugly uneven walls that don’t look great painted.

  353. Missy says:

    Hey Kate! I’m in the middle of upholstering chairs right now, so I”m thinking the brad nailer would come in mightly handy! ALTHOUGH….I’m about to build a window seat and put up a wainscotting in my dining room, so the other nailer might be better in there! Oh my..guess I’ll have to make my mind up if I win! :) LOL

  354. Lindsay says:

    The molding in our family room has been leaning up against the far wall for over a year now. My first project would definitely be the molding, it’s long over due.

  355. Missy says:

    I tweeted too :)

  356. Paula says:

    A brad nailer is one tool we don’t have and could use. I’d use it to help my mom with her house restoration.

  357. courtney says:

    ooh my dining room chairs need to be recovered and I’m in the middle of doing a nursery for our newest little one, which would look fabulous with some board and batten. I could think of a million projects to use this for!

  358. Virginia Underwood says:

    I have SO many projects I could use a nailer for! Framing 2 bathroom mirrors, hanging wainscotting in the kitchen and hallway, reupholstering a sofa in my living room, but first – I’ve got an old cedar chest my mother gave me years ago that despertely needs a new lid with an upholstered cover! I’m also putting this on my FB page (Ginny Underwood). Keeping my fingers crossed!

  359. liza says:

    love it! would do molding on the ceiling in my new kitchen!!

  360. Fran says:

    We are building a new house so I would certainly start with crown moulding everywhere.

  361. Candace says:

    I’ve been extremely interested in your batten board project and it inspired me to add this detail to my lower level recreation room. I have a bungalow home and it would fit perfectly in both style and in keeping with the architecture of the home.

    THis nailer would sure make the project easier and I would be very happy to share the before and after pictures. Thank you for the opportunity!

  362. Billie says:

    Where to start? The first thing I would do is a couple of chairs that have shredded backs and
    corners from the cat clawing them after I covered them the last time. After that, get in line
    because I could stay busy fixing/creating things for many, many months and years.
    Thanks for the inspirations

  363. Corinne says:

    I would use the braid nailer to build an upholstered headboard. I’m currently living on an air mattress on the floor because I can’t find the perfect bed! I have so many ideas that I can’t even begin to list them, but the headboard would definitely be first.

  364. Diana says:

    I would either do a board and batten project in my dining room or just finish out the chair rail and molding on the other side of the room. Why do builders just place that on one side?? I also want to replace all the baseboards in my home with a bulkier size – just saying.

  365. Rebecca says:

    I would love to install some board and batten along the walls in my bathroom downstairs. Love the look in the room you are doing. I have yet to paint the orange that is in there now. I am thinking of doing a blue similar to your picture. I also have a woodwork project that would go so much quicker with a nailer!

  366. Gwen says:

    We want to put up crown in our whole house. This would be great!

  367. Corinne says:

    I linked to this on Facebook (and need to learn how to spell….braid nailer/brad nailer….same difference LOL).

  368. Amanda says:

    We would use it to put down hardwood floors and crown molding.

  369. Anya L says:

    I am redoing the boys bedrooms and would love to add some molding to their rooms–maybe a “shelf” that extends around two walls for trophys and pictures…or board and batten to add interest.

  370. Jessica says:

    I have several molding projects that I want to start, but I lack a nail gun and am overwhelmed by the thought of picking one out.

  371. Tracey says:

    We want to add board and batten to one wall of our family room and this would be fabuloso!

  372. Callie says:

    i would FINALLY get some screen (with molding) in my empty door. huge frame-nothing inside.

  373. I wish I had the framing nailer. I need to build some shelving in out attic. I know, BORING.
    Believe it or not, I actually don’t own one of those babies.

  374. Kellie says:

    We have too many projects to list. :)

  375. Bren says:

    I am redoing my daughters room now that she is getting married and moving out. I would use it to finish the trim in that room, and also to build a new shelving unit in her closet. Oh, and I’m sure I would find LOTS more uses for it as well. lol

  376. Kath says:

    Oh, boy. A number of projects to choose from. The daylight basement family room needs built-in storage/bookcases. A long wished for project is tall built-in bookcases surrounding the fireplace upstairs. Or, a mantel for the mantel-less fireplace!

    The cat keeps peeing on the couch. Oops, said that out loud.

  377. Chelsea says:

    I have a sofa reupholstery project just crying out for the smaller nailer–both with brads and staples.

  378. Stacy Crozier says:

    Would love to put up some crown moulding with the finish nailer!

  379. Melanie says:

    We are planning on putting Board and Batten in our family room, this would be perfect!

  380. Courtney says:

    I dream of doing board and batten someday!

  381. sarah says:

    window trim!

  382. Claire Rose says:

    I’m working on my staircase right now and am making moulding drawings as we speak-I could really use this great tool!!

  383. Kimberlee J. says:

    I want to board and batten my basement! Maybe this would give me the push I need to start!

  384. Pamela says:

    I would like to transform our new construction home with crown molding and other trim detailing. Right now, we are in the middle of a shelving project so this tool would be helpful. In addition, I would like to construct an upholstered headboard and cabinet for all our kids books, add’l storage.

  385. Alison H says:

    We’d use it to replace the trim in our upstairs hallway, and then my hubby wants to build a train table for our son!

  386. Megan says:

    I would do board and batten in my foyer and then go to my mom’s house and do her foyer too!! Awesome giveaway – thanks!

  387. Patty Lucas says:

    We are planning to retire within the next 2 years and have to fix our house up to sell. I want to do board and batten in the upstairs bathroom and this would help us tremendously.

  388. lindsey says:

    First thing’s first … I would fix a spot on my coffee table that’s been driving me crazy. I keep fantasizing about how a nail gun would just be the perfect way to fix it! Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  389. Karen says:

    I really would love to install board and batten in the nursery for our next child. I’ve always loved that look!

  390. Tery says:

    I would have so many uses for a nailer. Add moulding to an existing plain bookcase, board and batten to my son’s room and make framed wood wall art to cover an electrical box. Thanks for the giveaway!

  391. Angela says:

    I would love to install bead board in our mudroom and crown molding in our living room. Great giveaway!

  392. kristen says:

    I need to hang some chair rail in the dining room. One side is up, but not the other… :(

  393. Hilary says:

    I would love to have the trim back up in our house! We put in laminate flooring almost two years ago and have yet to replace the trim because we don’t have a nail gun!

  394. Carole Carnley says:

    I have been putting off doing the crown molding in my children’s bathroom. This might be just the motivation I need!

  395. Christina says:

    I would love to switch out all the builder grade molding throughout house! It looks like the perfect size and easy to use!

  396. Kris G says:

    I would tackle some headboard ideas I have had for the kids rooms.

  397. Carole Carnley says:

    I have linked this message to my FB page. I hope that all of my friends see it and check out your blog! I have said it before and I will say it again; you are inspiring me to do make great changes to my home.

  398. Karen says:

    Oh LOVE that brad nailer!!!! We could FINALLY do the finish work on our kitchen counter bar area that has been sitting unfinished for 3+ years!!!

  399. Debbie says:

    We want to cover over the 80s brick fireplace in our family room. I’ll use the brad nailer to build the frame over it before covering with cement board.

  400. Andrea says:

    I would put up some crown molding in our soon to build new house! Oh, I’d also to do some board and batten in the new mud room!

  401. Renae says:

    Well we have something like 800 feet of baseboard and door trim to install (okay, so I never measured but you get the idea), not to mention all of the windows in the house! And the fact that my board and batten hasn’t been cut but i’ve been living with 1/2 painted walls is driving me nuts! So yes, I could use this. Thanks for the giveaway!

    BTW i’d love to see your basemolding, the hubs and I can’t decide what we should do for ours!! Thanks for all you post!

  402. Shaina says:

    Well I will say that my husband has yet me use his nailer a couple times, but a girl needs her own! I am dying to fix the beadboard in our hall bath and do it the right way!

  403. Analise says:

    AWESOME giveaway! We just bought our first home, and would put this to SUCH great use installing molding and board & batten treatments. OHHH! Excited at the thought :)

    Thank you! Analise

  404. Analise says:

    And… Adding to my FB status!

  405. Jan Wells says:

    I’ve been doing some re-upholstering so would love the help of the stapler/brad power tool. Jan

  406. Andrea says:

    I linked to this giveaway on my FB page.

  407. Heather says:

    Ooh, we’re planning to build a new fireplace mantel and built in bookcases in our living room. The nailer would come in really handy!

  408. Athena says:

    I would use it to recover some furniture.

  409. Carla Ballman says:

    I just picked up some chairs yesterday that I am going to paint and re-upholster! This will be just the tool to make my project go so much smoother!

  410. Rebecca says:

    I would love the brad nailer so we can do some board and batten in the nursery for our first child due in July

  411. Michelle says:

    Oh my do I have to pick just ONE project?? I have so many! Defintely would use it for the laundry room board and batten project as well as several b and b project at my grandfathers house that we are remodeling! Would also use it to make some shawdow box shelves for a tween’s room!

  412. Christina says:

    I need to reupholster two chairs and a headboard and I am plannning on putting up wainscoting in our master bedroom. This would be a lifesaver!!

  413. Maureen says:

    I have been wanting to add board and batten or wainscoting to my dining room AND build a gardening table. Winning this tool would get me going! Thanks for the chance!

  414. we could use it on the other half of our house that is completed gutted to the bare studs right now, see: http://2littlehooligans.blogspot.com/2011/02/our-homethe-planning-stage.html we NEED this, oh how it would make our lives easier! and then maybe we could sit a dining room table to eat and actually have a livingroom! thanks for the chance to win!

  415. Tracy P says:

    Where would I begin, so many projects come to mind……I think I would start with crown molding in a couple rooms in my house and then move onto some board and batten in daughters room.

  416. shala_darkstone says:

    I’d love to put a chair rail in our dining room. I’ve been thinking about it for years. Either that or I might stencil one.

  417. Amy in PA says:

    Insulate the garage!

  418. Beth Anne says:

    oh, we so need one to finish the bathroom! I’m hoping to put up board & batten in our master bath when we re-tile.

  419. Christine says:

    We are in the process of finishing our basement and the 2 1/2 nailer would be very useful installing trim and crown molding not forgeting the endless possibilities around the rest of the house. Thank you CG & Campbell Hausfeld for a brillant give away!!

  420. shala_darkstone says:

    I shared this giveaway on Facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/shala.darkstone/posts/206490976032581

  421. Sharon says:

    buying a new house soon so the possiblities are endless. Most likely first project would be wainscoting in the dining room or crown molding if there isn’t any.

  422. Lauren says:

    I would use the finish nailer to make built in bookcases around our fireplace that we have been wanting to do for months!

  423. Hi Kate-

    I am looking forward to the holidays to read all about your experience and see your lovely home all decked out.

    I would love the brad nailer – cool tool – wish I had it right now to complete an ottoman I am working on.

    My best- Diane

  424. Emily says:

    I would love to do crown molding and board and batten in my daughter’s new big girl room! We were unable to do a nursery for her because we lived in an apartment when she was born. So it would be nice to finish her room off properly! Plus the rest of the house needs crown molding and I would love some wainscoting in the dining room =)
    Thanks for doing these awesome giveaways!

  425. jan says:

    I am planning some board and batten projects and this would be perfect. Also might come in handy to nail my husband to the wall if he refuses to help me.

  426. BD says:

    What wouldn’t I do?!? I would replace the cheap backing on some store-bought bookshelves, I would finally put up the wall treatment in the basement I have been thinking about (does either nailer work for cinderblock/cement?), I would make some storage cubes for all of my junk, er I mean treasures, etc.

  427. greta says:

    i have a bunch of decorative millwork that I need to finish around the house. its taking forever using a regular hammer. the brad nailer would help move the process along.

  428. RIGHT NOW, I am in the middle of tearing off the trim in our whole house and replacing it with simple craftsman style casings. I am borrowing a friend’s nail gun AGAIN, and have thought so many times that I really do just need to get my own!

  429. Deb says:

    This would free me from using my husband’s HUGE air compressor with my power stapler – I’d LOVE to have a brad nailer for upholstery projects (sitting and collecting dust in he garage at present because I’ve been overwhelmed at the prospect of choosing one of these “bad girls”).

  430. Amy says:

    Sweet giveaway! I would use it to make an upholstered coffee table and add board and batten to my room. :)

  431. Cathy says:

    I want to reupholster a few things, hang some paneling and a few craft projects.

  432. Amy says:

    I posted the link on Facebook!

  433. Victoria Kennedy says:

    I’d love the finish nailer! My hubby is covering our brick fireplace with molding and it sure would make the job easier! Thanks!

  434. Dunne' says:

    I would definitely finish off my Dining Room with it. I’d like to paint in there, add in a chair rail or do a picture molding along the bottom half of the room!

  435. Rhonda says:

    I have been yearning to do a board and batten treatment in my darker than dark brown office! The brad nailer would be the perfect motivation!

  436. DeboraR says:

    I would use it to recover a bench I am not happy with and then some other projects around the house. We remodeled our bathroom and need to attach new baseboards.

  437. Lynlee says:

    I inherited an antique wingback chair that was my Great Grandmothers and thenbelonged to my Grandfather. I have always wanted to reupholster it but haven’t tackled the job due to lack of know how and the appropriate tools. Now after following your blog for a few months i feel confident to try it and the brad nailer would be the last piece of the puzzle to get me started!

  438. Heidi says:

    I am doing my very first reupholster project with a chair I inherited! I really would love to have the staple gun…I think it would make the project much easier…love all your designs!! Thanks for this awesome giveaway :)

  439. Susan says:

    I would use it to put up some crown molding!

  440. Debbie says:

    I would do a headboard for the master bedroom. This is a project I’ve been wanting to do! I take an upholstery class once a week. This nailer would be well used!

  441. Tracie says:

    I need to finish putting up my baseboards, i was switching them up for a bulier one but got distracted

  442. Ashley says:

    I am seriously excited about this give away!! I would have to say that my first project would be to put crown in my kids bedroom. Then I would move onto my living room and beef up the crown in there! My list is growing by the minute!! Thank you so much!

  443. Sharon Rogers says:

    I would use in my kitchen re-do… crown molding, baseboard, chair railing…

  444. Addie Ashton says:

    We’ve been borrowing our neighbors brad nailer & finish gun as we’ve been finishing our basement. I don’t know how we would have finished everything without them! It would be great to have our own tools!

  445. Lonnalee says:

    oh how fun this would be, I’m pretty sure my first project would be some sort of reupholstering followed by molding in my hallway.

  446. Kristin says:

    I’ve been dying to tackle some thrift store chairs and recover them for my dining room, but things always seem to get put on the backburner b/c I do not have the proper tools – so no more excuses if I win!

  447. Meg says:

    Oh, what I would do!

    I am currently living with the world’s ugliest kitchen. (No, really….it might be the world’s ugliest kitchen). I’ve been dying to start taking down the 5′ yellow tile with maroon tile trim (see, I told you!) and put up a board and batten wainscoting. From there, who knows!

  448. Lynette says:

    I’d like to give some new life to furniture with new fabrics and I’ve never done it-just delighted in your “before and afters.” This would certainly help!

  449. ally says:

    We’re gonna add some space and a bathtub to our bathroom this spring. I’m envisioning wainscoting, so a brad nailer would come in super handy.

  450. Candace says:

    I am knee deep, no make that thigh deep in a first time chair reupholstery. I would use the brad/staple gun for finishing my project. I would also use it to finish the baseboards and quarter round in my house. Thanks for all the awesome info and tips. I visit the blog everyday.

  451. Terrie M says:

    Oh my hubby would love it! We (he) can finish up the moldings in our house around all the windows. Then the board/batten for an entry/mud room area. Many other things I’m sure!!!
    Thanks for the giveaway. The little picture you shared of your boy’s room is looking great!

  452. OH please please please please please please please please please randomly pick mine! I’ve been wanting a nailer for 2 YEARS now. But it hasn’t been high enough on the priority list (dang diapers beat it out every time!), and my hubby is seriously scared of having one in the house. He’s sure he’s going to have to take someone to the ER to get a nail removed from a head. (funny man. He has no problem with any kind of regular gun being in the house, but serious issues with a nailer!)

    Anyway, I want to install beadboard in my kitchen. And crown molding in almost every single room in the house. And build a table. And recover my wingback chair. Um, yeah. I have a LONG list of things I’d use it for!

  453. Emilie says:

    We are saving to redo our kitchen next year. This would be very helpful!

  454. Wow I would love to win! Although then I’d have to choose which one I’d prefer to get!!

  455. Bobi says:

    I would add some board and batten to the office. Our house needs some architectural detail!

  456. Amanda says:

    I’d put in crown molding!

  457. Chrissy says:

    Yes, please! We’re going to be building a media center/desk in our home and this would be wonderful! Thanks!

  458. Oh, boy, could I use either one of those! We are just in the finishing stages of building our new home, and I have too many projects that I could use these tools on… I’m sure once we move in, I’ll be able to come up with plenty of uses! Thanks for the chance to win!

  459. tennille says:

    we built a house about a year ago and I have so many projects in my head. Definetly board and batten and so much more.

  460. Sophie says:

    I’m in the process of designing a long desk/work area for our homeschool room, and this tool is on my list of things to purchase! I need one to attach molding. Next I plan to make my own bed for a bedroom re-do.

  461. Catherine says:

    I would LOVE to win the brad nailer! I have so many projects around the house that I would like to do that require that tool. First up – upholstering our kitchen barstools!

  462. Karen says:

    We are wanting to put some crown molding up around our house – our bedroom, the dining room and such! My husband would LOVE to win one of these tools! Thanks for the opportunity! Can’t wait to see your son’s room!

  463. Sophie says:

    shared on FB! Thanks!

  464. Victoria says:

    I need this so badly! I am moving into my boyfriends new house, which has about a bajillion projects that need to be done – it’s basically a blank slate! One of the first ones would be to add some beadboard, and I have four chairs that need to be recovered. Oh, my head is spinning and all my fingers are crossed!

  465. Wendy says:

    I’d love the brad nailer! My’ husband and I have been doing a lot of projects lately, building benches, redoing our closet and going to be working on building a playhouse for our 2 boys soon. That would come in so handy with a multitude of projects we have planned.

  466. Tiffany S says:

    I would LOVE, LOVE to win the brad nailer! That way I could finally put all of the shoe molding back up from when I tiled my bathroom.

  467. Leigh in TX says:

    I love the look of wainscoting! I want to redo our dinning/breakfast area with it about 4 ft. down. So classic looking!

  468. Missy G says:

    I would love to build a DIY headboard for our (currently just a) basic frame. Thanks!

  469. Les says:

    Bathroom! I love the Board and Batten look. I also hope to install some additional trim in the bedrooms upstairs. Love this!

  470. Oh, goodness. If I won this? Hello, storage! This month, I started a whole-house makeover. A few rooms are going to need some built-in shelving and this would make it so much easier. Plus, my husband would be SO jealous.

  471. Carlyn says:

    I would put up beadboard in my dining room and upholster cafe chairs for my patio

  472. nancy says:

    I would use it to build our kitchen cabinets and many more projects in our home! xoxo’s Nancy

  473. Carlyn says:

    I posted on FB!!

  474. Stacey says:

    I’ve been contemplating trying a board and batten project! The Brad Nailer would be perfect!

  475. Patti Zipper says:

    The brad nailer sounds like just what I need to tackle recovering some chair seats. It would be my first time to DIY, too!

  476. MichelleH says:

    This summer I want to 1)install wainscotting in the powder room, 2)add trim work to daughter’s room, 3)add crown molding to living room, 4)add trim to kitchen cabinets, and 5)recover kitchen chairs. The brad nailer would get a workout here. lol

  477. tiffany says:

    We would use it to put up crown molding in our bathrooms, and to put up board and batten in my daughter’s room.

  478. Anna Blevins says:

    This would be an awesome help for beadboard in the bathroom!!
    Would LOVE to win.

  479. Jeanne Kramer says:

    I was inspired by your photo ledge/ coat hook wall and have already bought all of the materials to install one in my hallway that leads out to the garage. Now, all I need is the brad nailer to help me complete the project. Thanks for the chance to win!!

  480. Lara says:

    I’ve been wanting desperately to do an add-on room to our house, enclosing our covered porch. Our 1800 sq ft house is getting way too cramped now with 2 kids under the age of 2.5! I envision a sunroom style play room with beadboard under the windows. And crown molding in our master bedroom while we’re at it!

  481. I have been wanting to add some more bead board around our 1934 cottage – this would be perfect! Thanks so much for the chance to win!!


  482. Danyelle says:

    We are going to be putting wainscoting up in the bathroom soon and I would love to win.

  483. Ashley I says:

    I have SO many projects this would be great for. Then I don’t have to rent one. I want to do crown molding and picture boxes in my house. A long with a few Christmas presents I need to get started

  484. Nicole says:

    We recently bought our first house, so we have several projects we would like to tackle, including board and batten in the future nursery!

  485. Kathy B. says:

    “I” would not attempt any DIY project…I would probably end up nailing my own self to the wall. If “I” won the nailer, I would suprise my hubby with it and sweet talk him into installing board and batten in our guest bedroom. Something like “but honey, we WON the nailer so we HAVE TO DO THIS PROJECT.” HA!

  486. corinne says:

    I’m dying to make an upholstered headboard!

  487. Kerry says:

    We’ll be putting new trim in the master bath and sunroom once we’re installed the tile floor. Also have 3 chair seats to recover for the girls college apartment! Fun! i.NEED.this!

  488. Hilary says:

    We’ve got to finish installing crown molding in our bathroom, and this would definitely help!!

  489. Pam says:

    Like many here, I have dreams of beadboard in my kitchen. I have an old house – built in 1921 – so I have many, many projects on the to-do list. Thanks for this great opportunity!

  490. Emily says:

    We would use it to hang wainscotting in our basement guest room. Awesome!!

  491. Jody says:

    I would put built-in bookshelves in the den, make a real library in there. Would clear up SO much book clutter in the rest of the house! I love to read, so does my husband, but the books are EVERYWHERE!

  492. Maggie says:

    I need to reupolster 2 chairs this would do the trick!

  493. Michele Owens says:

    There are so many projects around my house. But the first one would be to add a bead board backsplash in my kitchen. I so love the look of a “Barefoot Contessa/Hamptons” style kitchen!

  494. Lorna says:

    We are buying our first house this year so the possibilities are endless for this bad boy! I have always dreamed of having beautiful waiscotting in my dining room!

  495. Megan says:

    I’ve been trying to convince my boyfriend that we should make our own padded headboard and I think if I win this, it may just do the trick! :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  496. Michele Owens says:

    I linked to Facebook!

  497. Ashley says:

    Pick me! We have so many projects we could use this for, crown molding, upholstering an ottoman, and so many more.

  498. Kindra says:

    I would love to try some board and batten on my half bathroom off the kitchen!

  499. Heather C. says:

    We could so use the finish nailer for our homeschool/playroom remodel!

  500. ButterYum says:

    What a great giveaway – I’ve been wanting to add chair rail and wainscoting to a few more rooms, so a brad nailer would come in quite handy!

    Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

  501. Sara says:

    I (along with my husband!) would put crown molding up along with replacing a lot of the old trim around our house!

  502. cristin d. says:

    Would love the brad nailer/compressor. That thing looks awesome! I’d use it to make some custom benches/toy storage in our living room to hide away all the toy clutter and I have been tinkering with the idea of somehow upholstering our headboard among a few other things :)

  503. DJ says:

    Oh, this would be such incentive for my handy hubby to get busy installing crown in my living room and board and batten in my dining room. Oh, and crown in my master bedroom. And a built-in window seat/toy box in the playroom. A new upholstered headboard would be nice, too…

  504. Heather says:

    I want to build cupboards in my garage and laundry room so the finish nailed would rock!

  505. Sara says:

    I posted about it on FB :)

  506. kim says:

    I would love to do board and batten in my bathroom (who wouldn’t?) :)

  507. Christina P. says:

    I have been wanting to make upholstered headboards for my boys and the brad nailer would be a great help! Thanks for the chance to win!

  508. heather s. says:

    I want to install some crown molding in my house.

  509. Elise says:

    I’ve always dreamed of putting up crown molding – if I randomly win, Id be able to make it happen.

    Happy weekend and thanks so much for the give-away!

  510. Heather says:

    Shared on fb

  511. Mary Rickrich says:

    crown molding and board and batten in numerous rooms in my house and my family/friends homes.

  512. angie says:

    Follower! I would put up some base boards and make a fabric headboard!

  513. Kerry says:

    We could use this for fininshing up the molding in my son’s room – and doing the crown molding we hope to add to our LR.

  514. Andrew says:

    I would like to surprise my wife with the brad nailer- she would love it.

  515. Heather says:

    Shared on twitter too

  516. Kathy says:

    We’ve built a cabin and have some unfinished projects…kitchen cabinet moulding, wood floor baseboard trim…just waiting for this!!! I could also pad the kitchen chairs….hmmm

  517. Kari says:

    I’d love to use this to do board and batten down our hall and wainscoting or beadboard in our bathroom!!

  518. AnneSATX says:

    I would love to do a board and batten treatment in my dining room. Thanks for all your great ideas

  519. mike @HA says:

    yes please! We’re starting on a basement refinishing project this summer with tons of trim, board and batten, and molding. This would be so helpful!

  520. maryc says:

    I am in the middle of a major DIY home remodel (currently doing three bathrooms-one with wainscotting. I can think of hundreds of projects either of the great tools would help complete. What a wonderful giveaway from my favorite tool company.

  521. Pam says:

    I just twittered to my minuscule following.

  522. laurie says:

    I would finally put up the last pieces of moulding in our house! It is 12 years in the making and I am more than ready to finish this job. :) Thanks!

  523. Christine says:

    We have this awkward space in our living room that is where a fireplace option could have been installed. Instead it is just a hole in the wall. I would love to build some custom open shelving and give purpose to the area. I’d also like to hang some moulding, and upholster my dining room chairs, and the list goes on for a long time.

  524. Gigi says:

    I need the Big Gun to build some shelving in my closet and to add crown moulding to my bathroom and living room!

  525. Allison says:

    I would put new molding in my living area and some of that beautiful board and batten for my hallway! Thanks for the opportunity! :)

  526. Nikki says:

    Reupholster a slipper chair that I love and desperately needs redoing, paneling on the interior of our cottage–and a whole list of projects that I’ve been waiting on for my husband to do. You help me realize that I don’t have to wait on him!!! I’ll do them myself!

  527. Amanda says:

    I would love to win so I could install crown molding. We are slowly but surely remodeling our 1980’s home and we could really use either of these great tools!

  528. I wonder if it would work on finishing my trellis? Could it go thru light weight twigs?
    Otherwise tons of upholstery projects! -Bethnaie

  529. Nicole says:

    Where to start mmmm, so many projects I want to do with that. Well I would have to say my first project would be to reupholster a fabulous chair I found at an antique store years ago. It has been waiting around for me to give it some new fabric love. Winning this would make that possible. :)

  530. Tammy says:

    We recently had all new flooring installed throughout our house. I have over 600 LF of baseboard that I need to install…this tool will be a blessing!

  531. Judy says:

    This would be a DREAM COME TRUE!! I am a crafter and have wanted one FOREVER. I also need to upholster two chairs and a numnber of trim work to do around the house. Oh MY, Oh My !! Pick me.

  532. Darcy says:

    My husband and I purchased our very first home this past fall…a cute foursquare in an old historic area of Pittsburgh. We fell in love with the charm of the neighborhood and the house! Unfortunately, the interior of the house was stripped of most of the original wood workings (baseboards, fireplace mantles, window frames, plate rails, and crown moldings). We are planning to put these features back into the house and return it to it’s old glory, and this nailer would be so helpful in making these restoration dreams come true! Thanks for the opportunity to win this!

  533. Nicole says:

    I would LOOOOVE to win this giveaway. I’m about to graduate school and have dreams of transforming my entryway with board and batten as soon as I get my first job. I know exactly what I want to do I just need to round up the tools (and money) to get me going. SO please please pick me!

  534. Jess says:

    I’m itching to recover the seat of a chair! I’d go with the brad nailer!

  535. Oona says:

    I’d love to use it to put board and batten up in our finished basement! It might even be useful for putting up the tin ceiling I want.

  536. Debbie says:

    So many projects…where to start…but I think my next project will be redoing my staircase with paint on the spindles and risers and adding molding/trim to the walls to look like wood panels. Thanks!

  537. Amy says:

    I have recently found many pieces of furniture in the alleys around where I live and work. These are nice, sturdy pieces of furniture that just need some TLC. I could definitely use the brad nailer to help me out with the upholstering projects I have in mind!

  538. Amanda says:

    Just tweeted about the giveaway!

  539. Sarah says:

    This is probably the most generous giveaway I’ve ever seen! I’ve been planning on putting up board and batten in my bathroom but haven’t had the tools to do it. The brad nailer would be perfect!

  540. Linda says:

    Oh, the projects I could complete . . . I need to install quarter round in my living room (that’s been missing since I put in the floors a few years back) and would love some beadboard in one of the bedrooms!

  541. Ami Ponzo says:

    Are you kidding? What wouldn’t we use it on? We have installed crown and chair in nearly all the bedrooms and now we plan to add wainscoting and crown and board and batten in all the main rooms. We’d be best friends with this thing in about 10 minutes.

  542. Cheri says:

    I’d love to do some crown molding and maybe a board and batten treatment for our new baby’s room!

  543. Michelle W. says:

    I have been dying to put up some wainscotting in our dining room.

  544. Lori says:

    I really want to make my own upholstered headboard. I just finished re-covering two chairs and I had a crappy staple gun and I almost threw it through a window. I would love to win!

  545. Harmony says:

    I would love this to recovering an ottoman in my nursery. (and I am sure I would find many more projects to do!)

  546. MichelleD says:

    Such a cool giveaway… Well… we have so many projects!! I would love to put up beadboard in my daughters room, crown molding in the kitchen, dining room, and living room. Um… make a headboard for the master bedroom… there are so many possibilities!! :)
    Thanks for a chance to win!!

  547. Kim N. says:

    I have a chair that I’ve been meaning to recover for about 2 years! And would love to install crown in my bedroom! This would be fabulous!

  548. What wouldn’t I do? Not even sure which one I would pick because I want to refinish furniture, build bookcases, finish the chair rail someone else started! With the new house the list is unlimited. I hope I get picked!

  549. I would love the brad/staple gun for upholstery projects. I HATE my electric staple gun with a passion. I’ve been seriously thinking about an air powered one for a while. I would LOVE it!! :)

  550. Alisa D. says:

    The picture you posted of the board & batten is exactly what I want to do with the brad nailer in my upstairs hallway! It’s meant to be! :)

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  551. Gerry says:

    I would love the brad gun to try wainscoting in the hallway and up the stairs. Your projects are amazing.

  552. Stacey Scouten says:

    I would put up trim in my dining room and kitchen. Thanks for the give away!

  553. Tonia says:

    I put up wainscotting in one room without a nail gun… hammer only…this would certainly make the next room much easier.

  554. Michelle Sines says:

    This would be so sweet & could be here in time to FINISH my project!!! While I would find uses for both of these, I would choose the Finish Nailer–because my biggest project is a Kitchen Remodel–tearing out cabinets and replacing with some beautiful open air wood shelving, new floors and an island on wheels! Majority of this to be done by myself! Thanks for the opportunity to enter!!!

  555. Casey says:

    You are SO inspiring! My husband’s head is spinning at the number of projects that I have recently completed and have in the works! I am dying to do the board and batten in my son’s room too! I found the cutest “tuffet” stool at a consignment store that I want to recover as well as some upholstered dining chairs that need recovered. The list goes on and on…

  556. I have an idea for some small shelving units that I want to work on as soon as I recover from my upcoming back surgery. That surgery, and my carpal tunnel syndrome, make it imperative to have power tools to work with.

  557. Elisha says:

    I would definitely go for the bigger gun, because we recently bought an old house greatly in need of some TLC, so who knows what projects I’ll get into in the future. My very first project, however, would be to tear the *bright blue carpet* off the walls in the upstairs bath and replace it with some pretty board and batten.

  558. Stephanie says:

    I actually have some chairs that need recovering – and I would love to put some crown moulding up in my living room – so I would have a hard time deciding which one I would want.

  559. Sommer says:

    I just moved into my new to me house last week and have a million projects I could use this for! Starting with the wains cotting in the wash room. I’m building and hanging a hideaway ironing board and laundry drying rack… oh it will be fabulous! Thanks for this chance to win!

  560. Allison says:

    What would I NOT do? I can’t even decide which one I would choose. Board and batten, bookshelves, moulding, it’s ALL on my to do list.

  561. Tara says:

    I’d love to try to make an upholstered headboard for my guest bedroom. I would also like to try to put up bead boarding in my daughters room.

  562. Jill Anderson says:

    I would LOVE to start putting up more modern trim in our new (to us) home.
    Maybe some board and batten in our Romp Room? and some crown molding in our master bedroom? and maybe pretty up the breakfast bar with bead board?
    Oh my – the list infinite!

  563. Delta says:

    I would definitely do board and batten in my guest bathroom! Thanks for the chance…

  564. Lori says:

    Our staircase is a carpeted mess! It’s the first thing you see when you walk in the door and no amount of cleaning makes it look good. We’re feeling inspired by your staircase reno so ripping up the carpet and replacing risers is definitely on our to-do list!

  565. Judy H. says:

    This would be just terrific. For a long time, I have wanted to beef up the original crown moldings in my living and dining rooms. I want to add some picture molding about 2″ below the crown that is there now. Once I paint the old and new molding, as well as the space in between, the same color, it will be a more impressive crown compared to the skimpy one that is there now.

  566. Jenn says:

    We have this weird little nook in our basement and I am building a “built-in” bookshelf for it.

  567. Zanna says:

    I would totally use that bad boy to put some board & batten at the landing of our staircase (it is currently carpeted…yes, the WALL is carpeted! Yuk!)

  568. Jen K says:

    Oh my gosh…I’ll be installing molding all around the house.

  569. Mrs. K. says:

    What wouldn’t I do around the house! This place is in serious need of some TLC. If I could make the whole board and batten thing work in this small space, I’d definitely do that!

  570. bethks says:

    I really want to add board and batten to my long hallway entry from the garage. Fingers crossed!

  571. Karen Jerread says:

    I want to build a basket storage bench for my grandson’s room for storage to start with.

  572. erin says:

    We could use new baseboards, but I need to recover my chairs. Tough decision. But either would be awesome!

  573. I would use this for the board and batten project I’ve had in mind for the nursery forever!

  574. I tweeted about this giveaway!

  575. I talked about this giveaway on Facebook.

  576. Tanya says:

    I NEED the finish nailer!!!!! We have an Ana White project planned for our bedroom and I have a board and batten project incubating for our bedroom! May the Random.org gods smile upon me!!!!

  577. Stephanie says:

    I have so many projects I would love to use this for…specifically for building things and adding the decorative trim to projects especially on small furniture projects. I have some chairs that I am working on that need some extra stabilization! The first time I used a nail gun I was scared, but once I got going I was hooked. I was very sad when we had to return it to it’s owner! :-)

  578. Stephanie says:

    I also shared this on facebook!

  579. janie says:

    oooohh…I could use that bad boy! I’ve been building trumeau mirrors with the help of a friend and his tools. I could do it all by myself if I win!

  580. andrea says:

    I have an ottoman that this would cover in mere minutes! Love to win!

  581. Tanya says:

    excuse me….I just tweeted! @TMHerald

  582. Anne says:

    I wan to do board and batten in my boys bathroom, build a small bookcase for an alcove, add windowpane molding in the living room . . .

  583. Tara says:

    I would love to add some crown molding and work on some furniture!

  584. Jennifer says:

    I would put board and batten in all three of my bathrooms, for a start. Or maybe in my dining room. So many possibilities!

  585. Denise says:

    I would love to try to make my own upholstered headboad and some maybe try to install some board and batten. So many projects are going through my mind!

  586. Kelly says:

    I would use it to fasten the frame for a mirror project I’m working on (similar to this but with more elaborate trim) http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/gijhjYNxdPN98F2z_8rFuj8LlVwqrF4t65G6z4nxG9Y?feat=embedwebsite

  587. Libby says:

    I just started looking at this model and hoping my family would be super-generous for Mother’s Day (a girl can hope!). I’ve got crown molding and wainscotting near the top of my list. Glad to hear your photo shoot went so well — it will be worth the wait!

  588. Darci says:

    Board and batton in our living room! I’m sure i’d find a hundred other uses as well!

  589. Jessica says:

    The real question is what wouldn’t I do with a brad nailer? I have been jonesing for one since we purchased our first house last October. First on the list, these walls need some wainscoting.

  590. Nina English says:

    I would be using it to install wainscoting in my upstairs attic to master bedroom conversion. :) What a great tool!

  591. Mary Franklin says:

    Wow, where to start. I, Lord willing, will be having a house built for me in Uganda and there will be countless updates I need to do to it – a headboard, board & batten, crown molding (maybe I’m pushing it there a little) but so many possibilities!

  592. suezi gurzi says:

    So many projects to choose from. My first project would be the island/bar for our kitchen. It would make it so much faster.

  593. Jessica says:

    I just Facebooked this post, too.

  594. Pat says:

    I have a list of projects to use the brad nailer/stapler. I would start with crown molding in my powder room then move on to reupholstering a sofa and two chairs!

  595. Laura says:

    I have so many projects on my list that I would use the nailer for. I would board and batten a wall in my kitchen first.

  596. Darla Strong says:

    I have oodles of projects at home to complete but the most important one is probably re-upholstering the kitchen chairs as they have seen their better days. I would love to win this!!!

  597. Victoria says:

    I would tackle the kitchen cabinet makeover by adding some trim to the doors and then re-painting. I’d also like to add crown molding to the guest room.

  602. Added to FB. I’m totllay into this sharing!

  603. erin says:

    My first project would be to finish upholstering my chair than I would use it for wall treatments like crown molding. thanks for the chance!

  604. Lorri says:

    We need to redo the floor molding in our home. Thanks!

  605. Jessica says:

    I’d put board and batten in my nursery for my baby boy due in April…ahhh, that sounds so nice!!!

  606. nikol says:

    Oohhhhhhhhhhh just a ton of stuff I could do with that nailer! I need to trim out my new bamboo tred staircase and trim the doorways in the lower level of our house.

  607. Abbie says:

    I would finish the trim in a couple additional rooms we have

  608. I would love to add some beadboard to my powder bathroom…how fabulous that would be :)

  609. jan says:

It is so like what I have envisioned for bringing the family room bathroom up to date.
    …and for those who might like to know, a compressor is the perfect tool for ‘dusting’ out the area under the strings on a grand piano. Nothing else actually moves the dust out of there! Thanks for the chance to win a tool I have long dreamed of owning!

    I have been putting off upholstering some chair seats and this would be the perfect kick start.

  777. Suki says:

    A bed frame.

  778. Jerlyn Marshall says:

    Redoing our old home for a rental – projects galore!

  779. shawna says:

    I would use it to put crown moulding in our bedroom – I’ve been wanting to do it for the longest time!

  782. Sue says:

    Oh, where to start! Working on crown right now then considering board/batten in the entry.

  783. Lisa T says:

    I would do board/batten in my laundry room!

  784. Bobbi says:

    We purchased our home 1 1/2 yrs ago and had to tear out all the flooring along drywall in over half of the house due to water damage. We put in new floors and replaced all the drywall and insulation. Now we are in the process of replacing all the trim we had to throw out…that tool would be fantastic for putting all the new trim back up!

  785. Meredith M. says:

    We are finishing our basement this year, so it would be used throughout the whole process!

  786. caroline says:

    Oh, a bunch of upholstery projects on my list, starting with a headboard!

  787. The Tiny Homestead says:

    I hope I get picked, because I have a ton of upholstering to do. I may have gotten in a little over my head with trying to reupholster our sofa- and without the right tools! Thanks for the offer.

  788. Jamie says:

    Mini crown molding in my kitchen!! This tool is my dream!

  789. Sharon says:

    Finish nailer for me! Moving into a recently remodeled, but plain jane house soon, and I simply must make it “mine”…since it will be my first ever (at 40-something). It definitely needs some crown molding above the kitchen cabinets…there’s a 5” space that’s too small to be functional and it’ll add some much needed interest. Thanks for the opportunity!!

  790. Carrie says:

    I would love to win, because there is some trim work I desperately need to get done around our house!

  791. Alison says:

    I have been wondering what type of nail gun I should get–I am so intimidated by the big ones I see. My dh isn’t a ‘tool’ man, so whatever DIY projects I do are mine to do. I want to build a closet organizer and my rally ambitious idea is to make a built-in media center/bookshelves.

  792. Carrie says:

    Just posted a link on my facebook.

  793. Traci says:

    I would use this for a million things. Probably board and batten too! :)

  794. Valerie K says:

    We are building in the Spring so I have so many uses! New to DIY but would love to use what the “pros” use ;)

  795. Little Spoon says:

    I would use this to put up crown molding in our dining room! It has a chair rail, but the crown molding will give it that little something extra! Great contest!

  796. Alison says:

    I posted this on Facebook too. :)

  797. Traci says:

    shared on my personal facebook page. :)

  798. Sara says:

    Crown molding in the family room. Board and batten in the powder room. Built in bench in the master bedroom… On and on.

  799. Robin says:

    OH MY GARSH! what wouldn’t i do with the brad/nailer/compressor combo? reupholster some chairs, add board and batten in my girls room, add small trim details to some furniture i’m building, etc. please, oh please, oh please :)

  800. Kelli Pesses says:

    Where should I start with everything I would do with the brad/nailer/compressor combo?? Uh, crown molding…finally, upholstery projects, on and on and on. It would definitely be put to good use!

  801. Maura B. says:

    I would put up the bead board wainscoting that I’ve been dying to put in my little girl’s room. with a “book ledge” :)

  802. Mattie says:

    Ooohhh…. was reupholstering some bar stools yesterday and my old stapler finally kicked the bucket. I would LOVE to make a head board for our guest bedroom. Keeping my fingers crossed!!

  803. Amanda Allen says:

    My husband and I are in escrow on our first house and I could use this for a million things! I really want to do my daughters room with wainscoating and I also have found some awesome chairs that i would love to reupholster myself!

  804. baltimoremom says:

    I really want a “library” of bookcases but will never be able to afford custom shelving. So with a nail gun, I see myself getting used IKEA Billy bookshelves from Craigslist, adding molding to the tops and bottom and painting them to custom make shelving myself. Would love to win this!

  805. Cathy says:

    ohh. a nail gun? B&B in the entryway and dining room project could be pronounced done with that little baby. Thanks for doing such an awesome giveaway!

  806. Amanda Allen says:

    I mentioned this on my facebook page!
