I finally finished my kitchen remodel!  It took seven months, and I did about 95% of the work all by myself.  It was hard work, but I'm so happy with how it turned out!  http://www.addicted2decorating.com/finished-kitchen-remodel.html

Cheap DIY barn door hardware --> http://a2d.tips/CheapDIYBarnDoorHardware

All of the hardware for my rolling barn door-style doors cost just under $60 for a ten-foot-long track that accommodates two 30-inch doors.

Repurposed doors projects:  http://A2D.tips/RepurposedDoors

Old doors can be used in so many creative ways!  I'll soon have 10 doors that I can use to make some amazing projects.  The tool shed is my favorite, but I also love the garden arbor, swing, and sliding doors.

I have one concrete countertop form all prepped and ready to go.  Just need to add concrete!  I'm using Z Counterform ogee edge forms from Concrete Countertop Solutions, and I'll be using their Z Counterforms White Concrete Mix for the countertops, so I'll end up with white concrete countertops. 

See the step-by-step prep work process here --> http://www.addicted2decorating.com/diy-pour-in-place-concrete-countertops-part-1.html

Good Morning,

I would like to introduce you VITROCOAT.

VITROCOAT
Produce your own Glass of any colour you want!

Vitrocoat is an additive engineered specifically to enable commonly available paint to be used with Glass, with exceptional results. Vitrocoat enables you to take virtually any basic glass and create your own custom made coloured glass, with durability never achievable with ordinary coatings!

Using Vitrocoat, it is a simple and economical process . The system involves the use of readily available two pack paints, which are computer mixed by the supplier to match virtually any desired colour, together with a third specially developed component - Vitrocoat.

In one simple application, this combination produces beautiful coloured glass with a level of toughness and practicality previously unavailable.

Glass treated with the Vitrocoat system has exceptional resistance to :-

Water - Can be used in wet areas such as kitchens & bathrooms.
Abrasion - The coating has very high adhesion and toughness.
Chemicals - Solvent resistance means the product can be installed with conventional construction adhesives without staining.
UV - Samples have been exposed to accelerated UV exposure tests without any detectable change.
Glass coated with Vitrocoat is ideal for use in areas too challenging for other materials. “Vitrocoated” glass has been rigorously tested to international standards of performance*.

Applications.

Showers, Kitchen backsplashes and worktops. All these can be clad with glass of your choice of colour, eliminating the hard to clean grouted areas associated with ceramic tiles.
Wall cladding & Ceiling panels – Large panels can be created using textured or plain surfaced glass. Virtually any glass can be used – laminated, tempered, annealed curved etc.
Flooring - Used with a waterproof and impact resistant bonding material e.g Betoglass®, Vitrocoated glass can be safely used for flooring applications, even custom made fountains, sinks etc.
Furniture - Glass is a practical surface for cleaning and easy maintenance. Furniture panels from Vitrocoated glass are ideal for many applications.
Vitrocoated glass can be cut, drilled and edged without chipping of the coating. This makes even on-site cutting a possibility for difficult cladding projects. Vitrocoated glass can be bonded to most substrates with commonly available building adhesives, without fear of later unsightly damage from solvent attack.


*ASTM test results from internationally reputed laboratories are available on request.



Regards,



Shireen Jones

DIY French Doors
http://a2d.tips/FrenchDoors
I turned some old six panel doors into French doors with circle fretwork that I cut out with a jigsaw.  They're mounted on $60 DIY rolling barn-style door hardware.

Progress on my kitchen remodel:
http://bit.ly/kitchen-remodel-progress

I used stock kitchen cabinets, and then customized them with decorative feet, turned wood columns, and decorative trim.  I also removed the middle panels from four of them and I'll be adding glass.

I eat here often, and I always enjoy the food. I gave four stars instead of five because of the service. Sonya, who always takes my orders at the drive-through in the evenings, is incredibly friendly and always gets my order right. The other employees could learn a great deal from her.

I go here at least once a day, and twice on most days. I go mostly for the unsweet tea (best tea in town!), but their food is also good, and the employees are very friendly.

My husband and I purchased an old house that needed leveling, so in May or June of 2014, we called Waco Foundation Repair for an estimate. They guy they sent was very nice and helpful. He finished the list of work that needed to be done, and gave us our estimate. The estimate seemed reasonable, so we scheduled the work to be done. A couple of weeks or so later, they sent out the crew to do the work. Our experience with the work crew was wonderful. They were very courteous and hard-working. The problem came about six months later (February 2015) when I was in the process of remodeling my hallway bathroom. I had torn out all of the old finishes down the studs, and was ready to start installing all of my new finishes. That's when I realized that my small 7.5' x 7.5' bathroom was TWO INCHES out of level from one side to the other. Then I started paying attention, and realized that other rooms in the house had some serious issues as well. Since the house leveling was under a one year warranty, I called and asked if they could send someone ASAP to fix it. The woman on the phone told me that they were so busy and booked up that my appointment would be about two months out. I couldn't live with a completely unusable bathroom that had been torn down to the studs for two months, so I stressed the urgency of getting someone out there much sooner. She then told me that she could spare two guys to fix JUST the bathroom within three or four days, and that once that was done, she would call me to set up an appointment for them to fix the rest of the house. They came out and did JUST the bathroom about three days later so that I could continue with my remodel. However, I never heard back from them about the rest of the house. Finally in April, I called to see if they were still planning on sending someone out to fix my house. She said that she would send someone out to look at it and see what needs to be done, and once they know that info, they would schedule people to come work on my house. A day or two later, another man (I was under the impression that he was the owner) came, and he seemed less than pleased about having to come to my house. He wasn't friendly at all, and told me that in order to fix the problems, I would probably have to purchase additional materials/services that weren't included on the original estimate (and of course, weren't included in the warranty and would end up costing me at least an additional $1500). Obviously I wasn't pleased with this information, as I had expected ALL of the necessary repairs to be included in the original estimate, and taken care of with the original work crew. But he said that he would have to have someone else come out and look at it to see exactly what needed to be done in order to get my house level. (If he wasn't capable of ascertaining this info, then why the heck was he at my house? Why didn't he send the other person in the first place?!) Anyway, he said to give him a week or two to send out the other person. That was in April. It's now the end of September, and I've never heard back from them. The original work they did on my house is no longer under warranty, and they clearly want a couple of thousand dollars more in order to do the job right and get my house level. In the meantime, I'm trying to remodel a house that is severely out of level, which is an impossible task. (My 55" tall upright piano, when touching the wall at the top, sits 2.25 inches away from the wall at the bottom. That's how out of level that room is, and I have other rooms that are just as bad, if not worse. You can SEE a visible hump in my dining room floor.) I highly suggest you go elsewhere for your house leveling needs.

I go to Freddy's for all of my glass and mirror needs. I'm a DIYer, and I'm remodeling my old house by myself, one room at a time, so I never have large glass or mirror orders. But even though I'm not a high volume purchaser like a contractor would be, they are always super helpful and get the job done very quickly, no matter how small. If I call/visit in the morning, I very often get same day service. Any time I need glass or mirror, Freddy's is the first and only place I call.

Just had Danco install a brand new HVAC system in my house (which previously had no HVAC at all). They made the whole process completely pain free. Anthony was the sales person we dealt with, and he did an amazing job at ascertaining our needs, and giving us some great options. He's personable and funny, but also very knowledgeable, helpful, and thorough. We felt absolutely no pressure to purchase a high-end system (although we did end up choosing the best of the five options presented to us, but we felt no pressure to so do), and he thoroughly explained the differences between all five options and patiently answered my 1000 questions. The two men they sent to do the actual install were also very courteous and hard-working people. They got the entire new HVAC system installed and running in two days, and were also very patient and thorough in answering my questions. Danco's customer service is second to none, and so far we're very pleased with the Trane XV20i system that we purchased. I highly recommend Danco!

HD is my favorite store ever! It's like a toy store to me. The employees are always friendly and helpful. I shop at this one most of the time, but I also head to the Bellmead location when needed. Both are great. I shop here probably four times a week, at least.
