an early gift

I have to share what my sweet boyfriend bought me today for my studio!!!!!!!
it's a Craftsman! however...I got it in black instead of gray....I was having such a hard time deciding on the color...I think I drove him crazy

(it's a month early b-day present)
it was on sale for half price... I couldn't pass up the opportunity!
