{May 2015: my parent's visit} ~ Shower Door

So when we moved in,
the shower door never
opened properly...if you opened it up too wide,
it would do this cracking sound that
sounded like trouble!

So the first full day my parents were here,
I ended up needing to clean near the hinges
and the next thing I knew,
the bottom hinge screws were coming out
and pulling the tile alongside! 
My Dad reglued the tile, making it much better than it was before, 
first by improving what was behind the tile, then
made a homemade brace to keep the tile in place while it was
setting in the new glue,
took the bottom hinge apart,
watched youtube videos on how to fix it,
adjusted a pin in the hinge, 
put the door back on, 
and made sure it worked perfectly! 
It was a huge under taking, that thick glass door was heavy!

The door hangs straight now and opens
without a sound!

It must also be very satisfying to your father to be able to help his daughter, who will always be his little girl!
