          First of all, this is a pro series backpack sprayer. It really doesn't let up. My only issue with the sprayer is that it doesn't have a handle on the lid. Not having a handle makes this hard to carry around. There are absolutely no leaks. It's a little slow to shut off but that may be due to breaking it in. The gaskets and o-rings are doing their jobs extremely well. Not heavy on the back at all. Great for all size jobs.

          This bed seamlessly blends modern style and contemporary fashion. Minimalist by design, it features a straight back and clean line with its upholstered bonded leather headboard. Bed can be used with or without a box spring.

          At first I thought the bed wasn't going to be sturdy with the wooden planks going across the frame but it's well crafted. The steel beams that create a t-shaped structure in the middle of the wooden frame is awesome. It does have to settle in. The headboard was a tad bit wobbly when putting everything together but its secured now. The directions were good. They could use a little more detail but the pictures helped. Last but not least, the box, when delivered wasn't in the greatest condition. Thankfully everything inside was okay.

          First things first. Measure, measure, and then measure again before you cut. Then make sure you have the right amount of material. The backsplash looks amazing. Of course I made the mistake of not measuring properly and I was a little off on the wall switch, which didn't help when trying to line up the rest of the tiles. I'm going to need more supply now. Peeling and sticking is easy. The mosaic pattern bring a pop to the wall and the kitchen giving it a modern look. Also read the instruction first of you're a "pro" like me. I also found it more beneficial to wipe the wall down before application.

          Wow!!! What excellent quality and detail. I'm in love with the pattern on the drapes and they let in just enough light. Pewter is the way to go. Ordered the wrong size but that's so minor. A quick hemline and we're back in business. You really have to see it in person. It was packaged nicely and no pills in the thread either. It actually has a pretty nice weight to it as well. So if the door is open it wont blow all over the place.

          I'd only recommend this drapery panel if your house has other areas within the same room that allow for natural sunlight to enter. These drapes block out the sun perfectly. Blue haze is a great color and the cotton provides a nice feel to the touch. Make sure to measure properly as we will need to take up a few inches on ours. However it does come with a second whole to raise them higher. Two things to add before I conclude. The other side of the fabric is a dense white to push out the sun so it should keep your house pretty cool if that is your intended goal. Also it was packaged very nicely. No pulls in the fabric or improper stitching.

          Answer: 
          You have to push the handle through with the plastic washer attached. Once the handle is through the plate, you need to slide the d-ring over the lip of the inserted handle. It took me a few times reading the directions.

          The Kalamera 18-Bottle built-in Wine Cooler is a great way to start your own home wine collection. It is a single zone cooler, so you can set the temperature that is perfect for the wines you love. It's the perfect size for a small collection, holding 18 bottles, niched in their own spaces on sliding beechwood racks. You can see them displayed through the dark glass window set in sleek stainless-steel door. It can be installed under a counter, and only takes 12" of width, so it fits in most homes, and it works if you want to display it in other rooms as a freestanding wine refrigerator. The low-noise/low-vibration design keeps the cooler quiet, and your wine chilled and tasting just as it's meant to, with no disruption of wine sediments to muddy the taste. This cooler is a cost-effective way to have an elegant start to your own wine collection. Enjoy!
