How a Ryobi Power Tool Had Me At Hello



 Do you remember this picture?

It’s a picture of a time when I had a moment. 

A moment where I fell in love

You know, the “he had me at hello” moment? 

Yes, I had it right there. 

This was when I fell in love at first sight and couldn’t get it out of my mind. 

No, it wasn’t a man, a dog, or a cat. 

It was a tool

For real.

A tool

Ryobi Nailer

At Haven I had the opportunity to try the

Ryobi 18 -Volt One+ 18-Gauge Cordless 2 in. Brad Nailer,

and trust me,

after I used it, I couldn’t get it off of my mind. 

How easy it was to use,

how lightweight and quick it responded



I had to have this nailer and I had to have it… NOW

I found myself daydreaming about all of the possibilities

and time I would spend with “my” nailer

creating amazing projects and enhancing my interiors. 

Daydreaming Ryobi

Well, thanks to Ryobi Power Tools, my dream came true. 

They must know there is chemistry between the nailer and me.

  You know…

chemistry is great,

but it’s what you “MAKE” with it that’s even better. 

So, today I am going to share with you why this amazing tool had me at hello.

First of all,

not only does it look good (I love the neon color),

but it has LITHIUM ONE+ power.

Ryobi NailerWhat does that mean exactly?

This bad boy can drive up to 700 nails per charge with it’s

Airstrike Technology

(built in air compressor)

Which means there is no loud compressor with a cord to climb over as you move around.

This makes it safer to move about and also makes it easier to get the job done.

Imagine tripping over a cord with a nail gun in hand… not a good scenario indeed.

That brings me to another great feature of this Brad Nailer.

It is safe.

The activation foot has to be flush with the working surface

or the safety interlock will not disengage.

Good to know.  (As a mom I need to know these things). 🙂

I was pleasantly surprised when I grasped the handle and a

LED light immediately lit up the surface. 

Brad Nailer

I also enjoyed how lightweight it is… only 5 lbs.

Rapid Contact Actuation Mode.

For my project I chose the Single Contact Actuation Mode for more precision.

Word of advice…

Do NOT let your husband get his hands on it…

Cordless Nail Gun

He won’t give you the tool back.

He’ll be playing with the dials – adjusting  and regulating the air pressure and depth of drive. 

I am telling you, it’s addicting!


I think he’s in “love” too.

I could tell you more, but you have to get your hands on it and try it for yourself.

You’ll see… and when you do,  I want to hear your love story!

I bet you want to see what I made with my amazing Nailer.

 I created a box for my kitchen table.

Wooden Flower Box

I want to thank Ryobi Tools for making my daydreaming a reality!

I think the chemistry is great, and what we made is super cool too.

I also want to Thank YOU for letting me share my “Love Story“.

This is just the beginning of what I have in mind to create with this Nail Gun.

I look forward to sharing it all with you.

In the meantime…


Every.  Single.  Moment.


Ryobi Tools can be purchased at the Home Depot.  For more information, you can check out the Ryobi Nail Gun here.

****The team at Ryobi Tools were generous to provide me with a nail gun and lithium battery to review and help in creating my projects.  All of the opinions above are my own.  I just love sharing with you products that create ease in completing a project.*****

  3. So, I just discovered your blog…love it…(angels were singing those last words!). And I cannot believe you have this tool on your website. I have been eyeing this.
