          I love this ceiling paint. At first I was a little hesitant to try it because a Home Depot associate told us he had heard sometime the pink doesn't fully fade away. Considering my sister-in-law had just used it in her house with no complaints, I decided to give it a shot.
          This paint makes the job a breeze, which makes the job go fast. I can easily see where I've already painted so I don't have to spend time squinting at the ceiling trying to figure out if I already hit a spot or not, and I can see if it was applied too thin. If you use a good roller and the existing ceiling is in decent shape, you'll only need one coat.

          One other potential hidden feature of this product - if you ever have a ceiling leak you'll notice it immediately because it should turn the paint back to pink. Addressing a leak quickly can minimize damage. Read Less

          I picked this vac up at Home Depot a few weeks ago, and it's been working great. Very easy setup out of the box, strong suction power, durable, and looks great...what else can I ask for?

          The 10 in. Husky Groove Joint Pliers also known as tongue and groove pliers are often used for gripping irregularly shaped objects. They can also be used for clamping materials. They are also commonly used for turning and holding nuts and bolts. An advantage to this design of pliers is that it can adjust to a number of sizes without the distance in the handle growing wider. These pliers generally have long handles for increased leverage.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I was very happy with these pliers until the grips started sliding off (see picture). I'm hoping some Gorilla glue will fix this annoying problem. Otherwise they feel solid and perform perfectly.
          Pros: Easy to Use, Strong, Good Size & Weight
          Cons: hand grips slide off

          The unique design provides jobsite performance. The Pro-Grade construction is light weight and strong, making the Husky 1000 lbs. Workhorse mobile and ready for any job. Use the 3-in-1, 1000 Workhorse, as a heavy duty sawhorse, a 2 x 4 cutting support bracket or as a mobile work table with storage shelf. The heavy duty construction will hold 1000 lbs. The extra wide top work surface is perfect for clamping and supporting piping, wood, metal, anything you may need on the job. The 1000 lbs. Workhorse is a professional grade tool ready for any job, on the worksite or around the home, set it up and work.

          I've been fixing up our house and purchased two of these workhorses to make the job a little easier. These workhorses get the job done, but they're pretty wobbly. If you're planning on using them to hold any significant amount of weight, I'd pay a little extra to upgrade to something that won't budge. Also take into consideration these horses take up a lot of storage space compared to a folding design, which Home Depot carries plenty of, so if you're tight on space, avoid these horses.
          Pros: Easy to Move, Good Size & Weight
          Cons: Not Durable

          Nearly every room in a house my wife and I recently purchased was covered in wallpaper. First we tried using hot, soapy water to remove the wallpaper which did not work. I did a bit of research and decided to buy this steamer at Home Depot.
          Out of the box it was very easy to set up - just plug the hose into the base, add the attachment of your choice, fill it with water, and plug it in. After about 15 minutes, it will start producing steam. (Tip: the first time I plugged it in it took longer than 15 minutes. I discovered it was because there was water in the hose that wasn't allowing the steam to pass. The best solution I found is to leave the end of the hose at the same level as the base Read More
          Nearly every room in a house my wife and I recently purchased was covered in wallpaper. First we tried using hot, soapy water to remove the wallpaper which did not work. I did a bit of research and decided to buy this steamer at Home Depot.
          Out of the box it was very easy to set up - just plug the hose into the base, add the attachment of your choice, fill it with water, and plug it in. After about 15 minutes, it will start producing steam. (Tip: the first time I plugged it in it took longer than 15 minutes. I discovered it was because there was water in the hose that wasn't allowing the steam to pass. The best solution I found is to leave the end of the hose at the same level as the base unit so the steam pressure can push the water out of the hose. I had the base on the floor and the hose on a kitchen counter, which didn't allow the water to be pushed out. As soon as I put the hose at floor level the water came shooting out followed immediately by steam.)
          Using the product is also very easy...it produces a steady flow of steam, so there's no trigger button or on/off switch; just hold it against the wall and start scraping. We found that scoring the wallpaper first definitely helped. Depending on how stubborn your wallpaper is, it may take two passes - one to peal off the top decorative layer, and another to get the more absorbent paper backing off the wall.
          This product can be easily used by one person - I steam with my left hand, and scrape with my right - so we ended up buying a second unit to make the job go faster. Now we have steamers we can lend to family and friends.
          My only recommendation to the manufacturer would be to include a more durable hose. We haven't had any issues yet, but twice I accidentally rested my stool across the hose, which pinched and blocked the steam. I worry that if I keep doing that I might cause a hole in the hose.
          One last thing - the product description says it produces steam for "up to 75 minutes." We found this to be a conservative estimate for both units we purchased. We usually get at least 90-120 minutes of continuous steam. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Good Size & Weight, Functional, Well Made, Nice Design
          Cons: lower quality hose

          Answer: 
          You could probably make it work, but it's not ideal. There are only 4 feet, so the second shelf using the top half of the poles would be sitting directly on the ground, which would most certainly scratch whatever surface you put it on.
