    Re: Renovation blog

    Thanks. There are quite a few on there but I think I found yours and yes, I can see why people prefer that to a blog and as you have a business it serves that purpose too. Thanks.

    Re: Cleaning All Glass Showe Enclosurer

    I've never regretted it. We use a squeegee after every shower, it's not a pain, you just get into the habit of doing it, although I guess I am a little bit OCD, but the kids do it too, they like...

    Re: Order to paint the entire kitchen?

    I'd start with the walls first, get the 'shell' done and work out. If you need to lean against/over the worktops and cabinets you don't want to be doing this if they're freshly done. Also the walls...

    Re: Plaster and Paint Help

    I agree with the other posters, it's worth getting it done properly otherwise it will annoy you while you're lying in the bath looking up at the walls. Believe me, I've been there :)

    Re: Weed killer and pets

    My dad used to use boiling water, or spray vinegar on them. Can't remember if this worked but he did it for years so it must have. It depends on how big an area you're talking about I suppose.
