          Designed with an early 20th-century industrial feel, each LED Mini Pendant features an integrated 15-Watt LED bulb. Perfect for surface lighting, the ceiling mount is easy to install on various types of ceilings. Compatible with most standard wall dimmers.

          Home Decorators Collection 8 inch Aged Bronze LED Mini Pendant
          I replaced an old pull-chain over sink light bulb with this new mini pendant. So I used a new ceiling box and then ran new electric supply lines to a new conventional wall switch. In the attached photo, you can see the supplied pendant mounting bracket attached to the new ceiling box. I did this before mounting the box to the ceiling to ensure I had the two pendant screws aligned correctly with their holes through the pendant base. I did not need the two longer screws shown in the background as the new box came with the short screws as illustrated.

          The pendant’s 15-Watt LED bulb provides more than enough light over the sink area and the adjacent washer machine, seemingly more than the old 23-Watt florescent did because of the LED’s more directional nature and domed lens cover. This little project turned out very well and the new pendant looks and works great.

          The strong look of the matte black frame contrasts the gleaming antique nickel decorative sockets. Vintage style bulbs provides warm yet ample light. This decorative styled flushmount can be used as an entry light or hallway light.

          Home Decorators Collection Walden Forge 2 Light Black Frame Flush Mount Ceiling Light with Antique Nickel Sockets
          One thing that made assembly and installation of this nice looking hall ceiling light easier was that the ceiling box adapter bracket and two little final nuts were pre-assembled to the fixture for shipping purposes. So there was no confusion as to which length screws are to be used to hold the light to the ceiling (see photo attached). The next photo shows the bracket detached with the final nuts re-attached. Note in this photo the relationship of the bulb sockets to the two holes through the fixture for the final nut screws. This is important if you want the sides of the

Note in this photo the relationship of the bulb sockets to the two holes through the fixture for the final nut screws. This is important if you want the sides of the light fixture parallel to your hallway walls. So secure the box bracket to your ceiling box accordingly (see third photo).
          It did require a second person to hold the fixture while I assembled the wire nuts even though I had secured the ground wire to its screw in the bracket to temporarily suspend the fixture. This was because my ancient supply wires were so to reach the opposite bulb’s wires.
          The finished product really looks great and we really like the vintage design of the bulbs and their nickeled sockets. And as you can see in the last photo, one bulb is orientated up the hall and the other down the hall (depending on your perspective).
          We are extremely pleased with new look this light fixture provides in our hall. It dresses up the ceiling just right.

          Delta Classic Toilet Paper Holder in Chrome, Polished Chrome
          We needed a toilet paper holder within easier reach. The original one was on the opposite wall a long reach away. So this Delta holder appeared to be the easy to install solution to the side of the bathroom vanity right next to the toilet.
          It mounts very simply with a bracket secured by two wood screws supplied with the holder (see photo attached). The instructions recommended using a 1/16” drill to drill pilot holes for the screws, but in our particle board vanity the screws were too hard to turn so I re-drilled them with a 7/64” drill bit. The holder then secures to the bracket with a small hex screw from underneath with a

          The last photo shows the fished job. Mounted this way, you can’t see it upon entering the room which was also something we wanted to achieve. Nice that this Delta made it so easy.

          Firm Grip Gel Pro Hybrid Medium Glove
          When we saw that these gloves featured genuine leather construction, my wife expressed interest in the medium size, so we went for it. She has been wearing my large size gloves off and on for years, and wanted “her own pair” after seeing these, very much liking the leather look.
          Firm Grip’s medium size was just right for her hand size (see photo attached). I tried them on, but I could not get my hand in, so they truly are a size smaller than men’s large. She found them very comfortable using a shovel and other tools in the garden (see other photo), thanks to the flexible back panel and well-fitting finger sections. I don’t know if she will ever

          MOHAWK HOME Bazaar Marbleized Blue 7 ft. 6 in. x 10 ft. Area Rug

The darker blues at one end transition sharply to greens and tans in a gradual, but balanced way.

          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?

          As long as it is used to grout between tiles spaced as in its instructions, you will be ok. But spreading it out over hundreds of square inches as a complete floor layer i don't think so.
           
          This multi-use scaffold is great for any job that requires working at heights. It can be used as 1- a scaffolding unit. The deck allows for a stable footing and a large standing space of 29 in. x72 in. It also transforms as 2- a Workbench on casters to install miter saws or table saws on the specially designed side of the platform. The included rails and attachment brackets can be adjusted to suite any brand of saw. The workbench can also be easily moved around the jobsite, then locked in place for stability. After the work is done, the unit can also be used as 3- a storage unit for the garage. The included storage shelf includes a ventilated metal grid and side braces that can be adjusted to any rung height along the ladder sides. Finally you can use the unit as 4- a cart to move your supplies around or to and from your truck to the jobsite.
           

          can one MetalTech baker-style safeclimb stack onto the scaffold bench? Or only another regular MetalTech baker-style?
