We Have a Winner!

winner_chastain.jpgWe put all the names into a hat and the winner of the $200 Home Depot gift card is someone who goes by the name of "Kevin." According to his entry, he's going to use the card to rent a floor edger in order to refinish a pine floor that he discovered under a carpet. It's funny, but we're in the middle of the same process (in our case the floor is fir) and we ended up renting a 4 pad orbital floor sander from Home Depot just this past Sunday. We toyed with the idea of saving the cash and using a belt sander and orbital (it's only one room, right?), but we quickly discovered that it's just not worth it to deal with the struggle. The floor sander had the floor completely prepped in about an hour and a half.

So keep the Home Depot rentals in mind as you plan your summer projects. It might seem unnecessary at first, but once you start to figure in your time spent doing things in a half-assed fashion, you realize that renting the right tool is the way to go.

Anyhoo, thanks to everyone for entering.
