          HDX box sealing tape is a value oriented choice for sealing shipping, moving, and storage cartons. Tape rolls will hold well in cold and hot humid temperatures. This 2-pack is great for refilling tape dispensers and bigger projects.

          I use a LOT of packing tape in my house. We use it for crafts, we use it for preserving jigsaw puzzles, I used it to seal flashcards for my nephews study cards. I used to buy dollar store packing tape thinking that it was all the same...it isn't. I found this out the hard way in my last major move to a new state.
          Never trust discount packing tape...
          It's a motto in my house that we ALL follow!
          This tape is NOT discount quality tape - it's wonderfully strong and very adhesive clear packing tape that can handle many tough jobs, from package mailing, to packing up boxes for relocation. It's nice strong tape!
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Sturdy

          This awesome little scoop arrived just the other day! I must admit to being excited about Christmas (it arrived on the 24th), but I'm seriously excited about the upcoming spring planting season so I can try this nifty scoop out.
          First of all let me say how really well made it is! This isn't going to be falling apart or buckling under the weight of a hearty scoop of soil any time. It's solid and it shows when you have it in your hands.
          And if I need even more reason to like this item...it made in the USA!!!
          Being able to get an actual decent sized scoop of soil out of the bag this year is going to be exciting!
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Functionality, Good Shape, Great Quality, Strong, Vibrant Color, made in the usa!

          But it's the design on the paper that has me swooning. I'm a fiend for any type of roses. I will take a beautiful rose pattern pretty much any day of the week. This wallpaper has incredible muted tones of gray, while bringing out the beauty of the floral pattern. I will be using this in my ½ bathroom in the Wainscoting portion, as soon as we get the room repainted.
          I guess my only suggestion for this paper is to make sure that you buy quite a bit more for waste - the pattern doesn't repeat itself in a close enough pattern, and it looks like a LARGE amount is going to be lost when matching up the pattern.

          Pros: Easy to Install, Excellent Quality, Functional, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Nice Design, Rich Looking, Well Made
          Cons: smell of vinyl, far apart pattern results in more waste

          I am a door and cabinet hardware hound. I collect knobs and hardware for my furniture refinishing projects and wooden trinket box hobby. I know when something simple like a handle, knob or hinge, is one of the fastest ways to go about a TOTALLY new and changed look.
          I'm a bit torn on this know to be honest. While it is extremely pretty, the weight is less than stellar. It feels a bit "inexpensive. Therefore, I would definitely designate this one to a rather popular category for me...the "budget friendly knob". It is indeed perfect for the consumer that needs a pretty and functional knob at a good price!
          Pros: Easy to Install, Stylish, pretty design, great price
          Cons: lightweight

          The design of Liberty's 1-1/4 in. Knob with Backplate is reminiscent of traditional 19th century Craftsman decor. This knob, paired with a bold Matte Black finish, adds a cozy warmth to your cabinetry and furniture. The old world charm of this knob easily transforms your kitchen or bathroom into a celebration of bygone times.

I definitely know when something simple like a handle, knob or hinge, can change the ENTIRE look of a item, and that it is one of the fastest ways to go about that changed look.
          I was REALLY impressed at the weight of this knob. It is substantial. This one will go a long way in changing up any drawer, door or decorative container or box. The installation process was a breeze. It is indeed a lovely knob

          It depends, if that number is what the can of base paint is called, then yes. Or, if you have a color card, that has a specific name to your color white - then again, yes it will have to be tinted. There are actually so many variations of white out there, that having your particular white made, is actually a smart idea. If you just take the paint off of the shelf, and they happen to have ANY variation of that base color, then, you run the risk of possibly not being able, to match it up, if i more is needed, in the future. But more importantly, If you have a specific color white, it can make a HUGE difference in the 'tone' of the room - we used a bright white for our trim paint, but, it had blue undertones ,(PWN-16 aka: DAY SPA), and it matched our wall colors, carpet and furniture, much better than, many of the other whites, because of how, 'Clean Looking' it was. I also have a, "Home Book", that has each and every one of the, 'Behr Paint Cards', that we used for each room. Now, if we need to go into HD, at a later date, all we have to do is, show that Behr Paint Card with each name and number. Doing this also assured me that, even if we need it in a different finish, (like satin), it will also match up. If you just take the white base paint, off of the shelf, you really wont have many options, if that base layer formula, changes even in the slightest bit. If you have a specific color code, any fluctuation in the manufacturing color, the computer will have it programed for the current formula, and produce the color that you chose.
          Hope that this helps!
