Cristina Garay / RemodelaCasa🏠Cristina Garay / RemodelaCasa🏠2017-10-15The Pasteur & Galt Apothecary Shop was one of my favorite places during our recent visit to Colonial Williamsburg. 😍

Cristina Garay / RemodelaCasa🏠Cristina Garay / RemodelaCasa🏠2017-10-05A throwback to my fall mantel, I guess, from two years ago.

Cristina Garay / RemodelaCasa🏠Cristina Garay / RemodelaCasa🏠2017-10-03I'm always using tools. 🛠⛏🔨hand tools, power tools... you know there is a tool for every job you want to tackle. So, I've decided to do a tool feature every Tuesday, calling it tuesdaytools. I'll be highlighting those tools I get to work with and that I like. Because, it's so true! Using the right tool for the job makes it easier to accomplish and most times it'll be faster and of better quality.
My tool today: the ridgidpowertools Palm Nailer - This is a really FUN tool!! 👍If your job calls for driving tons of nails, do yourself a favor and grab one of these!
The first time I used a palm nailer was while building my deck. Securing those joist hangers went quickly! I might use it for those decor projects that require me driving lots of nails. 😉

Cristina Garay / RemodelaCasa🏠Cristina Garay / RemodelaCasa🏠2017-09-30Hi friends, it's been an awesome Saturday to be outdoors, and that's exactly what I'm doing, giving myself a small break from
working in the kitchen.
I'm here, in my backyard setting everything for some hot dogs, hamburgers, 🌭🍔 and later on some S'mores. Yum! 😊
This pretty fall table's a sneak peek of my home tour that will be on the blog on Monday, as part of the "Welcome Home Fall Tour" 🍂🍁 hosted by my friend Kristi from chatfieldcourt. See you then. 😉 https://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/p640x640/22070740_1469453566442096_4631667919980331008_n.jpg2017-09-30
Cristina Garay / RemodelaCasa🏠Cristina Garay / RemodelaCasa🏠2017-09-29One of the tools that I'm always using when doing renovations around my home is this, my Dremel Multi-max oscillating tool. It cut that molding like it's butter. 😄 (swipe left to see the after), but I've also used it when installing wood floors, tile, drywall... It's great for those hard to reach spaces. You can easily change the accessories to work on sanding, cutting wood, metal or drywall, and even grout removal. This sure is a great addition to your tool collection!

Cristina Garay / RemodelaCasa🏠Cristina Garay / RemodelaCasa🏠2017-09-25I spent all last week working in the kitchen. The cabinets, doors and island were painted. 😔 As you all know, that's lots of work, but hey, it's done and I'm happy. 😋
I'm still waiting for the doors and shelves to dry some more, but I couldn't wait to try these pretties!
All these 3" cabinet pulls are from liberty.brand I'm still deciding between the first - Porter Oil Rubbed Bronze or the third - Venetian Bronze with Copper Highlights arch.
I love the second one - the Polish Nickel and Black Leather combo is striking, but I think it's a bit too modern for the direction I'm giving the kitchen this time.
The last nickle pull is what I had before, and no, I don't want them here any more! 😃
Which one is your favorite? https://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/21911521_534636553549380_8733133835350310912_n.jpg2017-09-25
