          A beautiful piece of furniture. Wasn't expecting something quite so nice. Well built, tons of features. Gorgeous deep wood tones with just the right amount of "bling" from the gold metal/brass inlay. The unit is deep and comes with three shelves. All I had to do was unbox, attach the legs and it was ready for use. Did I mention that it is also very heavy. Weighing in at over 100 pounds, it came very well packed for shipping (as much as I hate creating waste and increasing my carbon footprint, I am glad it was securely packed and protected. I cannot recommend this piece of furniture enough. Wish I had bought it earlier. Also, it is built so that you have easy access points on the back for use Read More

          Talk about sturdy! This thing is built like a tank, well welded seams, heavy gauge steel frame, nice shiny paint job. It weighs in at about 30 pounds and only took me 5 minutes to put it together with the included bolts and hex key. I didn't even have to go looking for a tool! Love the glossy finish, though I do think it will show a lot of finger prints very quickly and have to be kept clean more often than a fabric or leather stool. Also, think seriously about a seat cushion if you are older (like me) and don't have much built in padding "down there." It is a hard, metal seat, and the edge kinda cuts you across the back of the thigh when you sit. Just be aware. Otherwise, great chair.

          Was looking for a handle/grab bar for my maintenance closet louvered doors that I just installed. Decided I wanted something bigger than a knob, so I chose a bar that requires two screw hols. These handles are a good weight and size. they come with a pack of ten, plus screws in various sizes for different door thicknesses, which is very considerate. Very easy to install after determining that the screw holes are 5 1/8 inches apart. After that, I simply located the center of where I wanted to install, drilled two holes and set the handles. Viola! Instant upgrades for my new doors! I am very happy with these handles. I choose the matte black to place on top of the gloss black doors so that Read More

          Love these gloves! from the moment I slipped them on. I chose the XL size to be safe, and I am glad that I did. They fit "like a glove" even though my hands are a size large at best. They are super comfortable and give my arthritic hands a lot of protection and flexibility. I "play" in the dirt a lot so I am always buying packs of gloves. These are my new favorites. This six pack of gloves should last me the whole planting season and well into summer and fall. The water proof palm is well coated and extends further around the palm onto the back of the hand, unlike some gloves that may be water proof on the palm, but allow water to seep in from the back of the hand. This glove is perfect for Read More

          I have used several different types of odor eliminators for my maintenance closet, where there is a sewage pump for my basement area. The odors there can be sometimes gross. Oil plug-ins and other odor eliminators have only lasted a few weeks at best, before there presence has disappeared. After a few weeks of placement the whiffs of smell are still being held at bay. but I wonder just how long I can expect this to last. That is the only reason I gave this product a good rating and not an excellent one. The smell is terrific. It smells clean and bright, with notes of "clean linen and dryer sheets perfume." Once it is placed, you don't really notice the smell, but I imagine that you would Read More

          can I use it on a concrete overlay

          I had a mason put a concrete overlay on my concrete walkway and had it stamped. Can I put the granite grip directly on top of the overlay. Had planned to stain but am now considering other options. thanks.

          Answer: 
          I see no reason why this product will not adhere to your concrete overlay. But keep in mind, this product probably has guidelines about painting it on raw concrete Each gallon covers much less area than you will expect because of the quality of the surface. And new concrete will suck it up!

It also enables protection for all types of flooring, furniture, cabinets, countertops, appliances and more.

          Answer: 
          Sounds like a good idea. These are rated for "damp" locations, so they might work under the eave/porch of a house, but will probably not last as long in extreme weather conditions
