          We were wanting a floor that looked as if it was made from weathered lumber, with the color of weathered barn wood. We got this flooring because of the texture and color. The texture is as close to real barn lumber as you can get, but without splinters. Installation was the same as any other floating laminate floor. We have found that a better grade of underlayment produces a quieter floor and recommend it.

          We got this light fixture specifically for the driftwood finish to match the gray oak flooring in our kitchen, and it was a perfect match. As you can see, we added a box made from the same laminate as the floor, to drop the fixture down some due to our high ceilings and it worked and matched great. Installation was a little tricky because the screws the attach to light to the base are barely long enough to start the nuts, but otherwise we had no issues.
          Pros: Looks Great, Nice Design, Unique

          The Complete Cable Concealer Management Kit in Black from Stalwart is the perfect cord organizer. It contains everything you need to organize those messy cables. Each kit contains 6 cable cover raceways 1-1/8 in. x 11/16 in. x 25 in. each. That is 150 in. of cable concealment.

          This item worked great for us to conceal the tangle of wires behind our DVD, surround sound system, satellite receiver and TV. It comes with about twelve feet of channel, adhesive strips for each section of channel, and enough T’s and elbows for a variety of different designs. The adhesive appears to adhere to the wall well so far. The covers open easily if there is every a need to add additional wires or cables. I only gave this an “average” rating due to the T’s and elbows. While the channels and the adhesive strips are good, the other fittings are somewhat flimsy and don’t attach well to the channels.

          Single willow fence panels cover approximately 96 sq. ft. of flat area. Individuals willow pole diameters vary between 1/4 in. x 1/2 in. while tapering moderately over their height of 6 ft. Excellent for tradeshow backdrops, convention events, kids rooms, themed parties, basements and most any tropical themed oriented design. Even though this item is not completely see through, the item can be used to hide your unsightly pool equipment, air condition or heating units and trash receptacles. Easily rolled and unrolled for storing or transporting.

          This fence is an economical and quick way to add privacy to your outdoor or indoor space. We used it to add privacy to our firepit/ BBQ/patio/ hot tub area and block the view of a busy side street. I attached it to an existing woven wire fence using UV resistant cable ties and installation was simple other than this being pretty heavy. Two people are a necessity to handle and install this, as it is somewhat heavy and pretty floppy until attached to something.

          This is a convenient way to get all the pieces needed to plumb you gas dryer to your gas source. Everything needed, including pipe sealant and leak testing fluid is included. I do recommend adding a valve approved for gas on the supply line this kit will be hooked to allow turning off the gas to your dryer without shutting down any other gas appliances. Plus the added benefit of this kit is the automatic shut off in the event of the line getting broken, preventing a potential catastrophic explosion!

          The LP80 LoProfile fan is designed for installations where conventional ventilation simply won't fit. When a multi-family application requires it, the LoProfile fan is narrow enough to be installed in a wall between 2 x 4 studs. When plumbing or electrical obstructions are found behind the drywall in ceiling remodel applications, the LoProfile fan can still fit without having to move anything, and that means most any room with space constraints can have powerful, quiet, efficient ventilation.
