          White Round plastic plant pots, gardening and nursery pots are food safe, BPA free, inexpensive and durable. The white garden pots are perfect for many types of soil or hydroponic growing media. The raised rim design allows easy handling and easy stack ability when not in use and can be reused indefinitely. The tapered body allows plants to be removed with less labor. Raised bottom and drainage holes allow for complete drainage aerating the root zone which results in faster growth rates and larger yields. White pots keep the root zone cooler during hot weather resulting in better growth rates and yields.

          The raised rim of these garden pots are very handy in handling. Easier to pick up, even when full of soil as the rim secures the hands rather than slipping through. They are classed as BPA free (A product that is BPA free is one which does not use the organic compound Bisphenol A in its construction ). The size of them are 11 inches across at the top and 9 inches wide at the bottom and 9-1/2 inch deep.
          These are not hard plastic and are easy to push each side almost touching. However, pulling and squeezing them did not produce any amount of cracking of the pots to which I found a big bonus having other brands that do start to spinier when handled roughly.

          All have drainage holes and the stacking of these pots have no issues.
          Although it does state that they are food safe, I declined the good wife's sarcastic suggestion of serving dinner in one of them so they remain ready for the Spring time planting.
          As I said, they are flexible but sturdy. A good and thrifty cost saving method.

          This wallpaper is generous in scale, in texture and in glittering highlights. This rich paisley resembles an embroidered tapestry and makes a stunning statement. 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 feel of eco-friendly natural grasscloth gets the ultimate designer upgrade when paired with the cosmopolitan finish of high shine metallic backing. The impact of this wallpaper can only be described as elegantly dramatic, yet soothingly gentle in its application, making it useable for any decor. The real texture provides added dimension and enhanced visual appeal. Color: Platinum.

          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 premixed paste, I coated the wall, not the paper and used my pencil line as the mark to the edge of the covering.

          No, I do not recommend this product.

          Having said that, the instructions are as straight forward as they can be, although I have found a couple of main issues with this `Hotel Spar` First is the fastening of the soap dish. Being of a main plastic design, I had my wife screw it on I am far too heavy handed) . The fastening screw at first, gripped the male stem but then lost its grip and simply just spun around. I took it apart and yep, the screw had been in line with the hole and not off center. Tried screwing it myself gently but nope that only produced the same result

          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

          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?

I cut my surround a few inches from the top where my 4 inch air vent is situated. I drilled a hole that was big enough for my jig saw blade to go through and laid some polypropylene that I had cut to lay over the top to avoid any scratches to the surface of the surround and using a very fine blade cut through very easily. The most critical part was the accuracy of the cut in respect to my vent, Finally using a piece of fine sand paper to clear any rough edges. In short Rob it does cut easy. Just make sure that before cutting your surround is firm and does not vibrate. Good luck with your project. Read Less

          Answer: 
          I got an additional basket by inquiring at the Home Depot service desk and they called the company for me. the company then sent me one. This was a couple of years back and I cannot recall how much it was but I do recall that the shipping cost more than the basket. So the short answer is: Yes you can buy additional baskets. Just inquire at one of the Home Depot stores.

          Does Delta sell an arm so the shower head comes out further and faces down? We like the shower head but it is facing out of the glass door, soaking the floor.
