          Decorate your home with this advanced LED projection spotlight. It projects a gentle cascade of dropping spiders onto any wall or flat surface. Stake it into the ground and use multiple spotlights for an even more dramatic effect.

          I got a Christmas projection decorations last year and I loved them so I wanted to get some for Halloween. I love spiders and thought this was cool. It has great movement with the spiders dropping down. Besides the spiders there is a long black bar that scrolls through (see my video). Is this where the spiders are dropping from? I don't really get it. Anyway, besides that I am looking forward to using it this Halloween. As a note, in the listing it shows the projection sitting on a table on its base. I could not get it to sit level because the cord is so heavy it pulls it over. To use this without the spike, you would have to use something to secure it. I knocked off a star for that reason.
          Pros: High Quality, Lots of Features

          Being a cat lover, when I saw this Halloween decoration, I had to have it. It arrived quickly and was well packed. It is well made and I love that it has the pumpkin on the outside to contribute to your outside decorations. I love the fact that the eyes blink which is so unique. In the listing it shows the projection sitting on a table on its base. I could not get it to sit level because the cord is so heavy it pulls it over. To use this without the spike, you would have to use something to secure it. I knocked off a star for that reason since I wanted to use this inside.

          Did you know Philips Hue smart bulbs are only active when the light switch is in the on/up position? If the switch is accidentally turned off or Wi-Fi connection is lost, the Philips Hue smart bulb no longer operates from any control source (wireless app, remote, or voice). The Aurora Always Ready Smart Bulb Dimmer is the first and only solution that ensures your Hue smart bulbs are kept in ready mode. Its elegant, intuitive, easy-touch dimming aesthetic allows anyone to control the lights, even if they dont have the app.

          I got this dimmer switch to lock my Hue bulb switch on. Since my hue bulbs are in the kitchen, they are always being turned off and then I can't turn them on remotely. This functions as designed so for that reason alone, it gets 5 stars. However, I don't know what I was thinking, but as clearly illustrated in the listing, you need the old style switch (toggle) for this to work. Well I have the more modern switches, so it wasn't a simple install. I had to go buy the old style switch to have this work. Not a big deal, but still a pain. It does have a battery that needs to be replaced, at some point, but it is the standard CR2032 that is easy to find at any store. The second thing is you want Read More

The second thing is you want to pair this switch, you need to have the latest Hue bridge (square) and I have the older (round) version. So in all, it works as a switch lock, but I knocked off a star because it doesn't work with older Hue bridges. Read Less

          The bed was packed well and the shipping was fast. The instructions were easy to follow and very detailed. Each piece was labeled. It took an hour to put it together but it should of taken less time. Since the instructions were so clear and the parts labeled, I started putting it together only to use the wrong size washers and/or screws and only found out at a later step. If I was going to put the bed together again, I would lay out each part with the required screws and washers and it would take about 30 minutes to put it together.

Once put together it is a solid frame and looks great. It looks like a much more expensive bed - great buy. Read Less

          I was looking for a low profile faucet for my guest bathroom. I am remodeling it and the style in modern minimalist and this faucet is perfect. The faucet was extremely well packed so it would not get damaged in shipping. Though expensive, the faucet is solidly built with quality materials. Installation will be a breeze with the compression fittings and pop-up drain (which I love!!!) The simple handles are approximately 3" tall and have an indentation for your fingers tips so you can turn them even with soapy hands. The spout is about 3 1/4" tall and 8" long. Beautiful faucet - highly recommended.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Looks Great, Modern, Stylish, solid construction

          The contemporary look and feel of this door will be a great addition to any home or office. With its full clear glass lite an abundance of light will enter the room to enhance its decor. The solid stile and rail construction will provide many years of worry free use.

          Answer: 
          This is not the correct product for cinder block. You need to use a waterproofing product, such as RedGard Waterproofing and Crack Prevention Membrane (1 Gal - Model # LQWAF1 or 3-1/2 Gal.- Model # LQWAF3). We used this on our cinder block wall before painting. Works great.

          Answer: 
          A 22'x14' bedroom is 308 sq ft. It is always recommend to buy 10% over, so you will need 338 sq ft of flooring and underlayment. You will need 14 boxes of flooring (338.38 sq ft) which will cost $267.26 plus tax ($19.08/case) You don't mention what type of sub floor you have which will dictate the type of underlayment. The Traffic Master Standard Polyethylene foam (model # 100779555) can be used above Read More

The Traffic Master Standard Polyethylene foam (model # 100779555) can be used above and below grade and comment state that it will be fine on a concrete sub-floor, so you will need 4 rolls at $26.29/roll, which will cost $105.16 plus tax. So the total cost of materials for a 22'x14' bedroom would be $372.42 for flooring and underlayment.
          If you do not have the necessary tools to install, I would recommend the following:
          1. tapping block - got mine at a flooring store;
          2. Pull bar (Roberts model# 10-18-8), $12.48,
          3. Knee pads - these are awesome, but expensive, QEP F3 Stabilizer #79642Q, $34.97;
          4. Titebond wood glue, # 5004, $6.27
          5. Rubber Mallet, HDX #31031, $4.97
          If this is the only laminate floor you are going to install, Roberts makes a kit (#10-28) for $19.48 that has the tapping block, pull bar, and spacers. Read Less
