Graco Magnum Project Paint Sprayer: We went with this model because we wanted something that was somewhat easy to get out for small projects like furniture, but one that would also be able to handle a big job like the exterior of our home as we plan to paint our cedar shakes.

Spray paint handle/gun: If you’re doing a lot of DIY projects, a product like this is a must. It will save your hands from a lot of pain and make spray painting effortless. Note: I have not used this exact model, but this one comes highly recommended on Amazon.

Gaggia Classic Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine: As a former coffee shop owner, I totally recommend this machine for at-home use. It pulls coffee shop quality espresso shots and is fairly easy to use. Buying cheap machines will give you awful tasting espresso. This one is affordable and it’s a beast. It also froths milk well. I’ve even managed to create latte art off the basic milk wand that comes with it.

Gaggia Burr Grinder: I cannot stress this enough: If you want a high-quality espresso shot, you must have a burr grinder. A regular coffee grinder absolutely will not work. A burr grinder helps turn the espresso to a fine powder.

Cricut Explore Air 2: I don’t own this… YET! It’s my next big purchase in hopes of making my own wood painted signs, fun onesies and more!
