    We got ours from Menards...but not pre-drilled. DH drilled the holes and we have them at either end of the tub in our bathroom. When we remodeled the bathroom, the we put in a big soaker, jetted tub. It is a foot longer than a standard tub. To get glass shower doors would have cost $1500.00!!!! so we installed a stack of 6" blocks at either end, (with blue led lights inside)...voila..standard shower doors will now fit.

    Good luck finding pre-drilled. Let us know if/where you find some.

    I'm pretty sure they were with the wood items at the Hobby Lobby here.

    Thanks for the info. I will tell my husband about this. It is always cheaper to get you DH to do the work. (if you can!)

    He also uses the "spade glass drill bit" if that is of any help to your DH

    Saw them in Michaels, $9.99. But they looked smaller than I remembered them.

    You need a diamond drill to drill the holes. Also wouldn't the hardware or builder store have them cheaper? I saw glass bottles at the craft show done the same way. I have some of the one gallon antique or old milk bottles. The big square ones remember?. I had one drilled...I will decorate and show it later....
