          This is a very classy looking wall plate. The finish of the satin nickel is perfect and the design is simple, yet elegant. It really classes up an outlet and it is very heavy duty as well. This one will never snap like a plastic plate. The toughest thing is deciding which color outlet to use with it. A standard ivory one looks a little out of place so it seems like a stark black or white is probably the best choice. It looks great with black, that's the color we chose.

          I needed to put a very small wall next to a wooden deck to function as a step. The ground next to the deck is almost the same height as the top of the deck, so the top of the step is at the deck height for wheelbarrow and garden cart wheels to roll on and off easily. The wall (under the cap blocks) holds back the soil and maintains the air space between the soil and deck so that the boards don't start rotting. These wall cap blocks are angled on the edges to allow for placing along a curve, but in my case I just reversed the middle one to make a straight cap for the step top.

          Made from 100% cotton, this Cotton Non-Skid Bath Rug features an extremely plush and absorbent pile that keeps your floors dry. Each rug features non-skid latex backing to ensure rug stays in position during use. The machine washable design allows for easy cleaning without sacrificing the plush, soft feel. This rug is 100% pure cotton and is therefore flammable and does not meet US Department of Commerce Standard FF2-70 and should not be used near sources of ignition. STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX [19.HUS.68942 Hohenstein HTTI].

          This is a very nice bath mat that works well in our bathroom. It is nice and thick so is "cushy" and comfortable to stand on barefoot. It insulates your feet from a cold floor very well too. The non-skid back really works well to keep the rug in place and avoid a slip and fall that some bath mats are prone to. We haven't washed it yet so we don't know how well it will hold up to washing. It says it is machine washable, however, so it should do well going through the washer.

          This duvet cover set is very well made from high quality fabric. The printed pattern is simple, yet elegant and makes our bed look absolutely classy. The pillow shams match perfectly and make it a simple task to make the bed - just straighten out the duvet and toss the pillows with shams over the other pillows at the head of the bed. The size works well with our queen comforter, and it seems like most of the comforters we see lately just sell the queen size for both queen and full beds.

          I refinished a deck that has smooth, treated 2x6 boards that has had several different waterproofing treatments over the years. After a very strong cleaning with a chlorine based cleaner and pressure washing, the original brown tone coating was nearly gone so I needed to coat it with something that would provide full protection for as long as possible. This finish is rate for 4 years on decks which is about as long as any product I could find. It applied well using a roller with just a little cut-in brushing at the adjoining wall. It requires two thin coats with the second coat applied after 1 to 2 hours. After 1 hour it was dry enough to walk on it to apply the second coat. It covered well Read More

It looks good and it beads water spray after drying for a couple days. Since I just put it on I don't know how long it will hold up, but I'm pleased with the initial appearance. Read Less

With a nature-inspired wood-grain pattern in beautiful, go-with-anything colors, your deck will look good from any angle for decades to come.

          Answer: 
          Mine is mounted on a wall. The 4 gallon size is nearly a cube, 14 inches in each dimension Height, width and depth. You also need some more space on top for the pipe connections and pressure release valve. Plan for a total height of about 17 inches minimum to provide room for the piping.

          Answer: 
          There is chlorine in this product so it is a possibility to damage the material. It depends on the material and how color-fast it is. I used this on an awning with good results and no damage, but only after I had checked in a small area to see if it would be a problem. I limited the contact time to about 10 minutes before rinsing and then pressure washing.
