    White Knight vs Plastikote

    Thanks Cameron, I grabbed the cleaner at the new Bunnings yesterday. I figured for $15 it was better safe than sorry. Should I use a scourer with the spray or just a cloth? cheers Leane

    White Knight vs Plastikote

    Thanks Danel. I have decided the go the White Knight route as the process has changed since I last used it. The driver was that the old vanity was built in and too much hassle to remove, so bought some laminate paint and a will replace the top with a laminate benchtop. Our old Bunnings closes...

    White Knight vs Plastikote

    I was going to do it myself until I discovered the walls tiles are actually cemented on and the wall would have to come out and be replaced as those tiles are going nowhere. Went to Bunnings and despite their utube video saying to use Plastikote, they don't actually sell it, go figure. They had...

    White Knight vs Plastikote

    I only plan to stay another 12 months. $8k was to spray the bath and tiles, replace shower screen and tile the floor, providing I supplied the tiles. It is only a very small bathroom and was over my budget of $5k. The cost of respraying the tiles and bath came in at $2.5k and I believe I can...

    46 yo SWF seeks Financial Freedom

    Ha ha, yeah it does. When I divorced in 2001 I had an 8 yo son and a job that paid just on $50k pa. I had a friend who had property who was willing to give me the time of day, as well as the name of her broker and accountant. I dusted myself off and have managed to buy 7 properties. I...

    46 yo SWF seeks Financial Freedom

    Thanks WW Would love to do fix and flick, just trying to find the right location and price. I did find one that I was keen on but I missed it by a couple of days. Will keep an eye out for something else. I just want to do it to see if I can. JV - the IP I just sold was an JV with my...

    46 yo SWF seeks Financial Freedom

    Hey WW Quite the contrary, I know I have cashflow but want a smarter way of using it than the current sit and wait model. It's just that I would rather get rid of the car payment first. It's just that my brain is constantly trying to think of ways to get the best use of my dollar and now...

    46 yo SWF seeks Financial Freedom

    Sorry for the long thread, but you do need the whole picture. Settled on the sale of an underperforming IP last week and now don’t know which direction I want to head in. I don’t normally sell but this was a JV and the other party wanted out. I was watching an episode of The Secret...

    I can only talk about my preferences. I have purchased in both Margate (in 2005) and Woody Point (in 2007), they are both on the Redcliffe penninsula. Reasoning: the $9m wharf and foreshore upgrade, the Hornibrook bridge duplication due for completion early next year, 2 newly built blocks...

    Ready, set......geez where do I go?

    Ok thanks Steve. My bad. Not knowing what you do about Ian, took it to mean I was an idiot. I did put 2008 Update in the heading so was a tad confused. Again, thanks for putting me right. Also thanks for the "well done on your efforts" cause as anyone knows, the road can sometimes be...

    Ready, set......geez where do I go?

    Geez thanks for the warm welcome :( At the beginning of my new thread I mentioned that it was a 5 year update. How does that make ME an idiot!! The thread was added to to show people that it can be done, to stop procrastinating and move forward. I am a 44 yo divorced woman who came...
