    After the New Year I'll try laying wood flooring for the first time, then a tile floor in my game room, I think these should be easy projects that wont eat a lot of time and leave the house with only two bedrooms and the livingroom that will be carpeted. I'm saving up to have Granite counters iinstalled in the kitchen because Granite gets mighty expensive if you screw it up, then I'm gonna take a weeks vacation in the spring to redo the master shower, plumb in a new Jacuzzi tub, and finish off the walls and counter top with tile, I did the masterbath floor with tile last year.

I still need to get a better compressor for the airbrushing, but honestly I like the precision of hand painting much better.
    I was thinking about getting the wife a Devilbliss airbrush for Xmas, she has a generic gravity feed that she used one=ce or twice and doesnt like. She really prefers using a brush also but on larger projects the airbrush saves a lot of time.

    I bought my Devilbliss airbrush from House of Color's website, I also bought what is called the treasure chest. It has 100 bottles of HOK airbrush paint that is already pre-mixed, it is in squirt bottles which makes it very easy to work with. I also bought some stencils and stuff from them, I even have the "Real Fire" stencil but that is harder than it looks LOL!

    Looks very good. Been in my house for just over a year and always have new projects lined up. I prefer to do most everything myself as well. Just takes time and money and hardly ever have either. Just ripped out two walls in the house before everyone was down for thanksgiving.

    Actually I made the wife pick-up all the materials in her HHR, I'd hate to get my truck dirty.

    The bathroom got a new bathtub, tiled shower enclosure, a new tile tub seat, new tile on the floor, new toilet, new lighting, new glass sink bowl with custom made tile counter, waterfall fawcett, crown moulding, and textured/painted walls.



    Wish I were half as handy as that would mean lesser expenses, be it for roofing, painting or tile contractors in Dallas. When the tile flooring in our Dallas home needed repair, boy, had I but little idea where to start. Really great job, man.

    I have always wanted to make renovations on my porch. I love to relax in the porch while having a cup of black coffee. Hope to have enough money so spend for my next home improvement.
