          Looks high-end. Until you are up close, it's hard to tell that the 'driftwood' base is actually metal. I especially like the shape and finish of the canisters. The canisters are adjustable and can be pointed in separate directions, making it easy to illuminate specific areas or items. The over-all quality of the construction and wiring is good and installation is easy. The instructions call for "40 Watt E26 Type A Bulbs or CFL or LED equivalent" (not included). The instructions do not indicate whether or not the fixture is dimmable, but they do state it is suitable for damp locations. I am using it with an LED compatible dimmer with no problem.

          This automatic LED night light is equipped with a dusk to dawn light sensor that automatically turns the night light on (in low light settings) and off (in light settings) to ensure illumination is only provided when you really need it. For convenient customization, this LED night light is also equipped with a switch allowing you to choose between two levels of brightness to suit your needs. Rated to last for 15,000 hours and using only 0.4-Watt of energy, these LED night lights help to conserve energy. Since LEDs never overheat, LED night lights are also the safest option for your home. Use in kitchens, hallways, living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms and anywhere else you need additional light.

          Aesthetically, it's unclear which end is right-side-up and it's sort of awkwardly shaped. Functionally, it has good light level sensitivity but I got this for a long hallway, and when in the position that I presumed was right-side-up, the tiny (but bright) LED beams directly into your eyes from outlets at lower wall level. More harsh than you would expect. I also tried it in a kitchen counter outlet, but the light was even more intense at eye level. You can flip it 'upside down', but then it seems like it doesn't illuminate larger areas like my long hallway as well.

          I have a poorly designed second floor laundry area that won't accommodate a normal sized washer/dryer pair, not even stackable normal sized or apartment sized units. When I finally found a W/D set with compatible dimensions, the recommended semi-rigid duct would not work, so I have no other option but to use the flexible duct. They are not easy to clean, but they are easily replaceable every couple of years. I simply used the ring clamps I already had fitted. Temperature during dryer operation feels normal at mid and end cycles.

          With sweet songbirds, charming bunnies and mischievous squirrels, this woodland print has a delightful folklore style. Its silhouette design features white and charcoal hues. Charcoal Merriment Peel and Stick Wallpaper comes on one roll that measures 20.5 inches wide by 18 feet long.

          Adorable! I just can't get over how cute this design is! I didn't have enough to do an accent wall, but this design is a bit 'busy' for a whole wall anyway. Instead, I used it for a couple of projects; one of which covered to old canvasses and used them as wall art over a bed in a guest room instead of a headboard. I can't decide where in the house they will land, because the second project, which looks much cuter in person than in the pics here, was to re-cover a very old vinyl cube seat that is structurally sound but has seen better days.

          These bronze pulls look high end. The shape has an elegance that most pull designs don't project; not just 'cutsie'. The quality is great and installation is easy, of course. I got these to use with new off-white / cream kitchen cabinetry that has not yet arrived. But I would definitely recommend these as a perfect finishing touch for your kitchen.

          Create instant landscaping in your yard or garden with this easier to install yard fence. Made with weather resistant vinyl materials, this fence will not rust, rot or deteriorate from the elements. The panels are only 42 in. wide which makes them particularly suitable for smaller areas and for handling. To install, you simply insert the stakes deep into the ground included. For especially hard ground, you can use a tulip bulb auger on your drill to carve out small holes for ease of installation optional.

I can not guarantee results, but if you want to attempt to paint these, you may be able to do it specifically with exterior vinyl siding paint (since these panels are vinyl) or other products made for exterior vinyl.
