Finally, It Arrived!

Finally, last Saturday after 3 weeks of waiting, the door in the living room finally came. Yes I have it changed since the old one was having attack with termites. It has lots of hole that I can’t even contain to see. Maybe this improvement is not much at all to some of you but for me since it came from my hard work in blogging, this mean so much to me.

This color is only temporary, I am aiming for another color, maybe a chocolate brown paint?

Good thing they put design on it as a bonus, I really thought it was only plain since I didn’t give extra for the design but because of the delay, this design is free of charge. The wood they used is the Mahogany, which is according to them it’s very durable. They also applied a protection from termites, so hopefully this door would live longer.

A New Door Will Be Coming Our Home

Thank GOD I was able to earn extra from last month, I had my other half to buy a new door, you see our door is so busted, it is damaged by termites and as the time goes by, it created lots of holes. And I could not bear to watch it; it is getting dangerous especially that I am always out of the house since I am busy working. So I asked my sister to ask the one who build doors nearby and after a while she texted me how much was it. Mahogany was P 4,500 and Gmelina is about P 4,000 so when I got the money first week of this month, I purchased one of the car parts needed for the engine and the other half was spent for the door. They are still building it. Next Sunday they would deliver and install it to our living room. I can’t wait to see it in our living room and paint it with varnish, uhmmm what do you think what color would fit?

Furniture In The Future

Just imagine you have these kinds of stuffs at home, geez life could be easier! I would love to have these, the thing is who can copy the exact how flexible it is without any hassle at all. I remember when we were still living in the old house, the one I got when I was still single. I wanted to have a sliding door of our closet, but the next few months, it is not working at all. Most of the time I was always having a hard time pushing and pulling the sliding door, the money was wasted because I need to hire someone again to fix it; we decided to replace it with a real door. I like these stuffs but give me someone who can really do it.
