Select from beige with gold and bronze, teal with deep blue, beige and russet and 4 more. Pair with Linen Texture (GF0836 - GF0840) in compatible hues. Color: beige/ gold/ bronze.

          This Gold Leaf Raised Paisley Wallpaper has a real nice feel of the raised texture. At 0.1 thickness, it is of an excellent quality. The multi-colored design brings new life to the drab walls of the dining room. The best way for me at least was to use a ready mixed paste and layer the wall rather than the paper. Some folk like to cover both paper and wall with the paste but I found that my way made it easier to smooth out any air pockets without having too much paste ooze out the ends. The wallpaper went on without a hitch and even the accidental blob of paste on the display side was removed easily using a clean damp cloth and when dry, no sign of any stains.

          Wallpaper is nice and thick, (01 inch) and easily cut to lengths and width. My preference is to use a Stanley knife with the wallpaper laying on a board. The texture, depending on light, produces an almost 3D effect. Measuring the width of the paper and then using a level to mark the first sheet with a pencil in a straight vertical line not forgetting to take off around an inch of the measured width to take into account the possible imperfections of the corner.

          Using a smoothing tool, the rest was straight forward and any air pockets were easily dealt with pulling the covering back to expose the pocket and using your smoothing tool. The effect on the studio wall was exactly what was needed.
          Only a couple of times did I accidentally get some paste on the display side and was unable to wipe it off for some ten minutes which even when dry, the stain it left behind was quite visible

          The soap dish itself slotted easily into the bar end…. too easily. With just a slight downward pressure, the dish will not stay in.
          The final issue is that being of a lightweight plastic, my wife rubbed the side bar very lightly using a wet loofah which resulted in fine scratches which, for the bathroom was a definite.
          I think that given no issues, it is a fair price but with two or more issues, it is not.

          Duct tape and/or cable ties used to be my sad method of stopping a rattling 2 inch pipe but eventually, as always, it had to redone as it is invariably became loose over time. This Holdrite clamp solved that problem. Easy to fit on site by sliding one side of the clamp off and then sliding it back over the pipe and pushing it to close to the size of the job. Durable and yet remains easy to use. A perfect silencer. Excellent design

          These are absolutely ideal for my remote off the grid cabin. I used to have the ¾ inch copper piping run through several inner walls as well as the outside and that was fine until the well water pump started up via a generator which in turn produced a vibration which was, let’s say, `annoying`.
          The two main points that is an excellent design is, first and foremost, these tough plastic silencers open up to allow the pipe to slot into it, rather than having to remove it in order to slide it through. Second is the way the outside grips firmly onto the inside of the drilled hole and finally the two predrilled holes make for a perfect stable anchor

          Okay....I figured it would require a junction box that was recessed into the ceiling in order for it to be hard wired ,but how does the light connect to the junction box. For example, does the light come apart so the base of it can be fixed to the junction box?

          Answer: 
          Every tub that has a shower attached has a valve already in situ`(which is hidden behind the wall behind the faucet. On many tub faucets it has a pull up `pin`, which, when pulled up switches from filling a bath tub to a shower mode and visa versa. If you already have that, then all you require is the shower kit.
          Hope this answers you question
