I really shouldn't say this but people with the kind of attitude those people had don't deserve a house anyway. Hang in there Bootz you two will have a happy and nice home and as hard as you two are working on it you deserve a nice home.

Remodeling of a foreclosure


we just put on the poly and it went on rather easily :D Thank god it was easy and not like putting on coats of stain. I had to do some touch up on a couple of the cabinets and found that wax paper was best to put down under the cabinets that touched the boards we put down on top of the plastic drop cloth. So more pictures to come :D

got a couple more of handles on the drawers and well they look good but we might have to make a template or something to make sure they are going on straight and the holes are even

So ...here it is what it all comes down to.... the cabinets with the new glass in them :D so.. boom


and here they are again


the glass is called Rain..

for the price of the glass it isn't to bad looking with the red.
While I was putting the stuff in came to find out it wouldn't fit so last minute ran back to the shop and little to my surprise the owner cut it again for me. after cutting some jokes (excuse the pun) he actually began to interview me a little after i asked them how they got into this line of work. well.. I just might put a resume in or application for a helper of some kind. :D pretty cool work .. working with glass.. requires a lot of precision and an eye for detail which i think i have crafted to be better. but anyway next comes putting more handles on and getting hinges.. until then :D
