          The simple frame of this fan can be housed in multiple room decor styles as its unassuming design blends perfectly into various settings. With the ability to stand out while being simple. The modest style is unobtrusive and features clean lines for a fresh addition to your space.

          The black blades against the stainless of this fan is striking! This is a good size for a small area, and comes with an LED light that includes the bulbs. All parts necessary are included, and there are several mounting options, either flush or with the included hanger. As with any ceiling fan, be sure the electrical box that you plan to attach this to is securely fastened to a framing member, not to a box only attached with expandable ears. Also follow all electrical codes, and if you’re not comfortable with electrical hire a professional.

          This is a very solid faucet with a beautiful stainless finish. The listing says it does not come with the valve, but that is misleading. What is not included is the adapter that mounts to the floor and supplies the faucet. The faucet is all stainless and very sturdy, but the hand wand is cheap feeling, time will tell how it holds up. Overall though this is a beautiful faucet, and will look great in our remodeled bath.

          This is a TRIM kit, not a complete tub and shower faucet assembly! The valve must be purchased separately, keep this in mind if you’re considering this item. That being said, this kit contains all other pieces necessary for installation…shower head, shower arm, all trim plates, gaskets, handles, screws and gaskets are included. The fit and finish is perfect!

Indulge in the drenching spray of the 11 Rain showerhead and the 4-function hand shower, individually or simultaneously, easily switching between both with the push-button diverter. Designed for hassle-free installation using existing plumbing, Spectra Versa eliminates the need to drill or damage tile, transforming an ordinary shower in an extraordinary spa experience in just 30 minutes. Color: Brushed Nickel.

          This installs in the existing shower head fitting, simply unscrew the old shower head extension and screw in the included adapter. It comes with a stick on bottom attachment on the shower wall, but I chose the screw attachment option for some added security.. The shower head is great with four different sprays patterns. The shower head nozzles are rubber and easily wiped clean. The hand held head has four sprays with a toggle switch for one hand operation. The push button diverter works perfectly. It is an easy job to install this assembly, and everything down to the screws is included.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Looks Great

          The Merola Tile Lustre Beveled Antique Mirror 3 in. x 6 in. Glass Subway Wall Tile is the perfect unique addition to your home. Featuring a mirrored front surface, this piece is great for reflecting light and color from throughout the room. The beveled front helps to add more dimension and interest to this already intriguing piece. The random brown and taupe patterns throughout help give some color to this mirrored piece. This piece is great for use on walls in bedrooms, bathrooms, backsplashes and as accents to other products. Color: Antique Mirror / High Sheen.

          We had been looking for an antique mirror to use over our new mantle and found these. They have an antique look due to the beveled edges and slight amber tint and were perfect for what we wanted. We had to cut some of them and our tile wet saw with a diamond blade worked great. It did leave a sharp edge that a pass with emery cloth cleaned up nicely. We used a construction adhesive to mount them with good results.

          Exquisite hardwood grains run along the length of this PureBond Maple Plywood Project Panel, featuring rotary-cut veneers from domestically grown, sustainably harvested trees that exhibit the warmth and timeless quality of natural timber. The 7-ply panel is comprised of 100% wood (no MDF or particleboard), boasting a yellow poplar core substrate layered in cross-band formation to fortify its flatness and strength. The soy-based PureBond technology is formaldehyde-free, producing a water-resistant, nontoxic decorative plywood panel that is not prone to warp like solid wood and will not emit harmful fumes like UF-constructed sheets. A cost-competitive alternative to composite panels that may degrade interior air quality over time, this hardwood plywood from Columbia Forest Products is a superb choice for DIYers and professional tradesmen looking for stellar results on their next woodworking project.

          Why is this Maple plywood $10 cheaper than the Birch and Red Oak plywood? Is there a deficiency with this type of plywood compared with the other 2?

          August 19, 2017
          Answer: 
          The price of plywood is determined by the price of the final veneer. In this case maple is less expensive than birch or red oak wood for the outer veneer that gives the plywood it's grain and color.
