          Armor All 20-Volt 2.5 Gal. 2-Tool Kit Cordless Wet/Dry Vacuum with Portable USB Power Source
          This “tool box” size wet/dry vacuum proved to be the perfect size for ease of storage and quick easy, accessible use. It sits on a shelf within reach of my work bench for frequent quick cleanups, and because the hose is always connected (see photo attached) and the tools neatly stored on board, there is no searching around for a detachable hose (like most other vacuums) or nozzles when cleaning up sawdust or metal shavings is required. In fact, my bench top has never been kept as clean as it is now thanks to the handiness of the Armor All.

          The battery change is most simple and accessible as well because it’s right on top (see photo attached) which has proven to be the perfect placement for ease of use. Once the main battery is charged, the USB power source component attaches to it for as a power/recharge source. However, I can see a clear need for an extra battery, because the one battery in the kit is either in the vacuum or detached with the USB power supply module connected.

          Seraphine Mink Fabric Arm Chair
          Although very attractive, we are not as happy with the comfort of this chair as we had hoped (see attached photo with added back cushion). With a cushion supporting you lower back added, the chair is great, so really that’s not too bad for a simple fix. The packing was very well done (see photo attached) as the chair was protected by thin a cloth bag and a large, sturdy cardboard box.
          The legs and mounting bolts were cleverly packed under the seat (see attached photo) accessible by a zippered covering. And then with the chair upside-down to install the legs, some of the quality design and materials were noted (see attached photo).

          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. Color: 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). Color: Champagne Bronze.

          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.

One or two of the arms moved pretty easily at first, but the other three were very resistant to rotation, and it seemed if you did not move the correct one first ahead of another, they seemed to “tangle” with another, and then you had to go back and start over.
          The second issue was lining up the spread arms (thinking they were now correct) with their corresponding screw-through holes in the heavy bottom fixture ring. I had the five arms spread open three different ways before I achieved their proper alignment, and then finally the lower ring screws passed through and into the bottom of the bulb socket assemblies properly (see photo attached). The included “instructions” make no mention of these frustrating cut-and-try steps except finally inserting the screws. What they need for instructions are a clearly marked part lettering-number system that designates which arm is to attach to what position on the lower ring.

          The Everbilt Universal 2-pack stainless steel washing machine hoses with elbows are built to prevent leaking, corrosion, kinking and crimping. The hoses have a multi-layer reinforment featuring a PVC core, multi-filament braided nylon reinforcement, a clear vinyl outer shell, and a grade 304 stainless steel braided exterior with a protective non-corrosive jacket.

The washing machine hoses are equipped with 90-degree elbows to allow the washing machine to install closer to the wall and reduce strain on the hose. This 2-pack includes (1) 4-foot braided stainless steel hose with blue and (1) 4- foot braided stainless steel hose with red.

          The photo for these hoses shows that one hose has blue stripes, the other has red stripes. In other words, they are color-coded. The customer photos shows that this is not the case, there are no colored stripes on either. I want color-coded hoses. Why are they advertised as such if they are not?

          Not really a problem. The backside of our washer has the hot and cold inlets clearly stamped H and C. I just connected the cold water to the washer first and then connected it to the supply faucet on the wall. Then the hot. I then used a blue magic marker to color the cold water female end at the wall faucet so if i ever disconnect them, I know one from the other.
