          COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paint is designed to be everything regular spray paint isnt. From the must-have selection of head-turning colors to the hardworking paint formula and sleek can design, no other spray paint allows you to play with color the way COLORSHOT does. Even better, the innovative COLORSHOT formula has a propellant derived from sugar cane instead of petroleum, so you can feel good about the sweet decision to turn everything in your house a shade of Mermaid.

          9 oz. Metallic Smoke & Mirrors Dark Silver General Purpose Aerosol Spray Paint
          I needed to change the color on some drape holdback pennants (see photo attached) to match the original drapery rod silvery color, so this Colorshot metallic silver spray paint seemed just right for the job, and it was. I took the precaution of donning a filter mask before spraying and I am glad I did because you could see thousands of tiny silver flakes coming out under the pressure of their environmentally more friendly propellant. And these flakes dried to a beautiful metallic silver finish that made these pennants look very high-end (see other photos). And please note that my mediocre cell-phone photos don’t

          A fresh take on classic bridge faucets, the Capilano kitchen faucet references an era of design known for durability, functionality and efficiency. Authentic detailing throughout shows a rich historical influence, while the high-arch spout provides ample space for all of today's kitchen tasks. The pull-down spray head featuring Sweep spray delivers a wide, forceful spray, simplifying kitchen cleanup.

          Capilano 2-Handle Bridge Pull-Down Sprayer Kitchen Faucet with Soap Dispenser in Vibrant Stainless

          Of course we didn’t pick this for the packaging, we just fell in love with the many user friendly features style and beautiful stainless finish and updated design. In particular we like the auto-retracting sprayer head integrated with the faucet (see photo attached). The extra height of the spout also makes it much easier to measure to a desired cup level on the side of our coffee carafe in the morning when I make the coffee. It’s height also makes rising dishes and such easier and less likely to smack/chip a nice piece of china up against the lower orientated spout as was the case with our old dated kitchen faucet.

          The Victorian Bath Collection adds an impressive element of distinction and a touch of old-world charm to any bath. The 24 in. double towel bar adds a bold design and look of distinction to your bath that is reminiscent of a past era. Complete your look with the entire Victorian bath collection (sold separately).

          Victorian 24 in. Double Towel Bar in Champagne Bronze
          We were so impressed with the look, quality and Victorian design of this towel bar is was hard to decide which bathroom to mount it in (see photos attached). And as you can see it the photos, the elegant design looks great on either wall, even though they are vastly different in appearance. We liked it so well in both rooms that we will buy another one.
          One thing that really appealed to us was the Champagne Bronze antic-like finish. It looks very authentic, and as we found, compliments a variety of decors. So we will be looking at the other items of this design and color.

          Focusing LED Work Light by Coast
          You don’t know this right now, but you need this work light. Its versatility is amazing as it works so well illuminating tight work spaces (i.e., under the kitchen sink) due to its unique base/handle design and lens assembly. The base/handle swings out to the front or to the rear (see photo attached), to four or five detended positions each solidly securing the beam angle. The beam’s intensity can be selected by pressing the front mounted switch (see photo attached). There are three brightness settings. It’s a rocker type switch that activates the light at either end: top or bottom half.

          The magnetic strip on the handle’s end secured it to this refrigerator securely while pointing the light beam down the hall (see photo attached). The beam itself is narrowed or widened by rotating the lens bezel. The light has a hefty feel (1 lb. 1.7 oz.) and came with batteries already installed (see photo attached). Thank you coast!
          The high intensity beam (700 lumens) is powerful. I shined it across the field last night and it illuminated the stone wall about 200 yards away. Impressive.

          Porto Santo Mixed 12-Piece Melamine Dinnerware Set
          Wow! Or how to dress-up a plain old oak table (see attached photo of all 12 pieces). This 12 piece set is just what we needed to brighten up dining when we have our next door neighbors over for a meal.
          And with a proper place mat (see second photo), the inviting setting is made. The look and feel of these melamine dishes and bowls is nice and smooth, and they wash, rinse and towel dry very nicely. We love the color and the designs very much. So these pieces are sure to liven up several future means. (Just need to find the right flatware to complement their look.)
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Looks Great

          Answer: 
          I only had to run it about 24 hours the first year. So I changed the oil thinking (1), that was enough break-in, and (2) did not want old oil to just sit in the off season waiting for the next hurricane. With new oil, I run it for 20 minutes, with a load, to circulate the new oil fully through the engine.

          The description says you can use this faucet with a 1, 2 or 3 hole sink, but the installation instructions show it installing on three holes with the hot and cold coming through the outside holes. Also the faucet in the instructions look different. Did they upload the wrong instructions or are they just generic for any faucet and you have to figure out the difference?

          All the supply lines and sprayer line come down from the center spout. The hot and cold faucets don't actually have any connection from under the sink. See photo.

          Keep floors clean with this dust pan and brush set. The poly fibers of the brush are flagged to gather dust and dirt particles. Dustpan has rubber lip on edge which sweeps debris into pan not under it. When you're done cleaning, simply lock the brush handle into the pan until you need it next.
           

          Is the dust pan recyclable?
