« Part 5: Toilet Paper Holder Part 6 of Bathroom Remodel series Part 7: They say it's only vanity »

So with the expanded window, we needed to obscure some of the glass. I thought “Oh, let’s go to Michael’s, get some stencils and etching acid, and put some patterns on it”. Charlene heard that and thought “Let’s put pictures of my favorite childhood camping spot on all the available glass”.

Including the $700 shower doors.

So now we’re practicing. A lot.

Started with the Harbor Freight “air eraser”, which is kind of a sandblaster airbrush. The docs said it could run 60 grit, so I bought a box of 80 grit (and it came with a small container of 150 grit). The 80 grit clogged it, and it ran a very fine line. So I went back and got the $25 suction feed gun, and that’s what we’re playing with now. Using ductape as a resist, we definitely need to find some vinyl, the fibers in the tape are a pain.

And I’m thinking about trading in the noisy small compressor for a 10CFM 70dB compressor…

To be honest your design of Shower doors is not good or impressive. You must use more which must be good and safe towards the privacy. Infect, you can use internet to get more amazing ideas then practice accordingly which is easy and free of cost source to make a good design. Now i want to find superior paper writing services from a good reputed website. Because so many fake websites in the market which main purpose to get the money and nothing else.

That is impressive detail on the glass. Was this stenciled (I doubt I am spelling that right) or all free hand?

There are three major parts on the Home Screen of Mobdro Live TV App, and they are Recently Watched, Live Section, and Categories.

The recently watched section provides you with the channels you have watched at last before closing the it on your Android device. If you are a person who watches only few selected channels, then this features allows you to go to the channel you like easily.

Live section is a simple one that shows the channels you see most or channels that are related to the country you are present. Suppose you are a US resident and have gone to the UK for a trip then the channels you see in the Live section could be of UK.

Categories section is the most useful and loved feature; developers had divided the channels based on the content they provide like Channels, Sports, Movies, Shows, News, Gaming, Music, Tech, Animals, Spiritual, Podcasts, and others.

Here is the list of popular channels in each category

Channel: This the general A to Z list of the Channels available on the Mobdro Live TV App with hundreds of channels going down as you scroll them through the app. Many top rating channels like BBC, National Geographic, AMC USA, ABC, CBS and more are available for the users.

Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.
