          Take some of the work out of remodeling your basement by covering your existing 3 in. or 3-1/2 in. Dia support columns with this Oak 12 in. x 8 ft. Wrap. Quick and easy to install. A very attractive alternative to the tedious process of building a box around your unfinished columns. This Wrap has pre-sanded 1/2 in. wide panels of premium red oak bonded to a flexible backing. Bring out the rich natural wood beauty by simply finishing with two coats of polyurethane. Oak Cap and Base trim (sold separately) can be added to complete the look of a classic fluted column.

          Nice way to jazz up a metal pole. Accepts stain easily without any prep. Vertically, you can use a razor blade to cut off a few strips as needed to adjust for different pole diameters. To fix the height I rolled it up tight and cut off the bottom with a miter saw.

          Axxys Clear Hemlock 3-1/4 in. x 48 in. Contemporary Newel Post. The nature of Hemlock allows it to be painted, stained, varnished to match exisiting wood attributes in the home. The Contemporary Newel Post works in conjunction with the Axxys railing system, as well as being compatable with other interior railing systems.

          I decided to go without the "hat" decoration. I stained it a driftwood color, but I will need to redo the tops, they are getting too blotchy with the gray pigments in the stain I used.

          Gloss White 4 in. x 12 in. Ceramic Wall Tile features a striking, glossy sheen accentuating the neutral white color for an easy complement to any decor. The tile is suitable for use primarily on interior walls, such as kitchen backsplashes or on counters. You can easily incorporate accent pieces and decorative border tiles into the design for a customized look to suit your space. To help maintain a clean, beautiful surface, clean with a low-alkaline detergent diluted with warm water; waxes and sealers are not recommended.
           
          For ceramic, these pieces were very easy to cut with a tile saw. Almost no chipping.

          Dual Convection distributes heat throughout the oven for faster and more even cooking. Upgrade any kitchen with a slide-in design that blends seamlessly into your cabinetry to give your kitchen a high-end look. Five elements with double elements ensures you have the flexibility to cook multiple dishes using different-sized pans simultaneously.
           
          It looks pretty and works well so far. Good price for such a sleek looking piece.

          It looks okay from a distance. The shelves look pretty fake close-up.

          Can this be stained and treated with polyurethane prior to installation, or are there cons to doing this? The video instructions say to finish it after it is installed. Any help would be appreciated from someone who has installed this product.

          What grout matches fresh white 3 inches times 6 inches field tile. Please advise on matching grout color.

          Answer: 
          I used snow white and I think it matches well. Bright white might be too yellowish for this tile.

          I need it to be a few inches less. Can I cut some of the wood off each side so I can make it fit?...

          I need it to be a few inches less. Can I cut some of the wood off each side so I can make it fit?
          Also does the wood just sit on top of the pipes or attached to them?

          No, it's fake wood.
