          This product just arrived yesterday and I had it up and installed in less than 10 minutes. Of course, I was replacing another wall sconce, so the base plate was already in place (they're usually universal), so I just pulled the other fixture off and unwired it, put the new wall sconce in place and connected all the wires with the provided wire nuts, then in five minutes I had a new look over my kitchen sink. I am very pleased with the shipping speed, the packaging to protect the product, as wel as it comes with a cool Edison-style vintage light bulb. I might change it out, but I like it for now.

I have a floating concrete fireplace hearth, that I have always wanted to be more"bold" My house is an Atomic Ranch (1960) and I have been tricking it out over the past 8 years.

I ordered this paint because it called itself "Sterling Silver", and I thought it would add some depth and shine to the hearth. I applied it, first with a brush, because I prefer my first coat to be brushed on. Then I was able to re-coat in only 30 minutes. That was awesome. So after re-coating, I took my last pic an I am very pleased with the result. This is a good product if you are looking for a silver metallic, indoor paint to create some art on your walls or living space. Read Less

          I bought this as a temporary head as my old shower head, which was a rain shower style, finally gave up after 6 years. I thought this would be temporary, but I like the various settings and the off switch as well. It is also a water saver style and has good pressure so I might just keep this awhile. Since it was less than $20, I would recommend it to anyone as an easy, cheap way to replace a shower head.

          For a do-it-yourself project, it is fairly time consuming. I am applying the planks over exposed studs in a closet that was never finished in. After three days of work (about 4 -5 hours per day), I am most of the way done and it looks good. My space is an odd one, only a little over two feet wide and 4 feet deep and it's under a staircase, plus I am working around wires and ventilation tubing. As far as application, it does break too easily when using brad nails too close to an end. I have drilled pilot holes and used liquid nails to apply it, which is time consuming. Plus I am finishing off the edges with inner and outer corner moldings. The only way I could give this an excellent rating Read More

          Don't know why I thought this would be something that would be "universal" and would fit any cantilever umbrella base. I guess my umbrella wasn't meant to fit this, so I just put it together and am living with the fact that one end section is buckled up. That part is my fault and I suggest "Buyer Beware." The other thing is trying to fill it with sand and water. That is a chore! I am still not sure how full they all are (4 pcs). Once filled, this becomes a two person job

          this collections looks great, but isn't it annoying that the toilet paper sits (drags) against the wall? Will the ring swing out to stay horizontal so that doesn't happen?

          The bar that holds the paper does swing out to accommodate various size rolls of paper, and the paper does occasionally touch the wall, but I have never found it annoying.

          Answer: 
          the chain is approx 10 feet in length and the electrical cord id much longer. If you buy more silver chain, you could lengthen the chain by another 6 feet, I am guessing, or you could add more electrical wire (if you trust your skills) and customize the length to any of your choosing.

          It is a simple device and only so many things might be causing the problem. a) motor broken, b) needs wd-40/lubricant (motor seized), c) electric light wire tangled in motor gears. Once those things are considered and ruled out, the only option is to "retire" the decoration, or just enjoy it as a lighting device, w/o any "action"
