          The Feiss Ethan mirror in antique forged iron enhances the beauty of your home with ample style to match today's trends. The Ethan collection is a contemporary take on the strong verticals and horizontals of the elegantly simple, Asian influences of the Mission style. A great choice for your do-it-yourself project.

          This mirror is absolutely lovely, and it looks and feels sturdy and high-end. The matte black finish looks great with my black slate tile floors. The mirror came in a large box with the backing and glass packaged very well - even though it was shipped, everything was in perfect condition. It took less than 5 minutes to put the whole thing together. Note that you’ll need a screwdriver to loosen the clip screws, then install the backer and the glass, and then retighten the clips. I was able to use the wall hangers from my previous mirrors, but this does come with a complete set of hangers. It’s a bit taller than most standard-sized mirrors, so my 6’4” hubby loves it.
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Excellent Quality, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Nice Design, Rich Looking, Sturdy, Well Made

          Viagrow plant saucers are placed under any self-draining potted plants. Plastic plant Saucers are great for potted succulents, flowers, herbs, fruits and vegetables. Viagrow plastic saucers catch water runoff and media, protecting surfaces below the plastic plant saucer. The ribbed plant saucer bottom helps prevent pooling and aid in oxygen retention for the root zone. Viagrow plant saucers are available in 8 in., 10 in., 12 in., 14 in., 17 inch and we also offer a multi size pack VCS-25MP which includes 5 saucers of each size.

          For a long time I’ve used saucers like these to avoid water leaking from my potted plants onto floors or furniture. These are relatively thick, sturdy plastic. It’s nice to have a variety of sizes on hand, and the sizes are pretty standard (8”, 10”, 12”, 14” and 17” - the set comes with 5 of each size). Note that the diameters listed for each size are outside edge to outside edge - for example, the 8” size actually fits a pot that is 6-½ to 7” in diameter.
          Pros: Durable, Sturdy

          As someone with food allergies, when I host parties I like to label dishes that are allergen-free. So even though these place card holders are elegant enough for weddings or other formal events, I use them for casual potluck dinners. They’re small - about an inch and a half in diameter at the base and just about as tall. They feel heftier than they look. Overall these are great for any dinner or cocktail party.
          Pros: Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish

          I got this single-handle faucet because I like the high arc, the swivel of the spigot (it moves all the way side-to-side), and the aesthetics - it’s classic but not old-fashioned in style and appearance, and the brushed nickel finish matches my other bathroom accessories.
          The box does not include any instructions at all, but you can access the installation guide on the Home Depot website. As indicated in the installation guide PDF, you need to provide your own supply lines and have a few basic tools on hand.
          I wasn’t totally sold on the touchless feature - and am hoping that it holds up over time because there is no option to turn the faucet on and off without the touchless sensor. Read More

          I wasn’t totally sold on the touchless feature - and am hoping that it holds up over time because there is no option to turn the faucet on and off without the touchless sensor. The handle only controls the water temperature. The sensor operates on AAA batteries, although you can purchase an AC adapter to run off an undersink outlet instead of using batteries - however, that means you won’t be able to use the faucet if the power goes out. All in all, it’s a great faucet with the caveat that if the touchless sensor fails, the whole thing will need to be replaced. Here’s to hoping the sensor is as durable and reliable as the rest of the faucet - time will tell. Read Less
          Pros: Looks Great, watersense efficiency

          The reason I got this Kasa smart bulb is because it doesn’t require a dedicated hub to work - the bulb itself just connects to your router, and then you control the bulb via a smartphone app. Also, I really like that each bulb can be on a separate schedule, so that when I’m out of town it doesn’t look like all the lights are coming on at the same time. I installed this bulb in my front porch light - where it works great, even down to 20F and even though the product info says indoor usage - and picked a fairly cool blue color, which looks great in the seeded amber glass of my fixture. Dimming is set at about 50% and doesn’t flicker like some LEDs.

          So basically, this is a great bulb - however, the app could use a little improvement. It sometimes loses the ability to display the schedule for a particular bulb, which means I have to wait and try again later if I want to change the schedule - and that’s annoying. Also, once the bulb is set up, I can’t view/change the wifi network it’s using (I have a dual-channel router, and sometimes I decide to change networks for certain devices based on how far they are from the router, by trial and error).

          Answer: 
          The product description says indoors. However, I installed one of the similar Kasa bulbs (the multicolor one) in my outdoor porch light and it worked fine, even in temps down to about 20F and with dimming to about 30% brightness (I didn't try any lower than that). That said, I suspect outdoor use might void the 2-year warranty.

          I'd recommend getting a new faucet as it would be easier than drilling new 8" holes for your old faucet. If you want an 8" faucet though, you could certainly drill new holes (if you have proper tools and skills) and then get an ecutcheon to cover the old holes.
