          COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paint is designed to be everything regular spray paint isnt. From the must-have selection of head-turning colors to the hardworking paint formula and sleek can design, no other spray paint allows you to play with color the way COLORSHOT does. Even better, the innovative COLORSHOT formula has a propellant derived from sugar cane instead of petroleum, so you can feel good about the sweet decision to turn everything in your house a shade of Mermaid.

          I have to say that this is some pretty darn good spray paint. Vibrant colors, easy to apply and dries very quickly. My assortment included one can of primer and five cans of paint. Two gloss (speeding ticket and summer pedicure), one satin (mermaid) and one metallic (first million). I painted a wooden bath accessory with the mermaid (which is a shade of turquoise) and it covered beautifully.

Next I painted a metal picture frame with speeding ticket (which is a darker shade of red). I find that painting metal objects often results in a less than stellar end product due to coverage and adhesion problems, but the Colorspray paint almost completely covered with the first coat. All it required was a light second coat and I was thoroughly pleased with the result. Colorspray is definitely one of the better spray paints that I've come across to date and it's priced competitively. I've uploaded before and after shots of the picture frame mentioned earlier for comparison purposes. Read Less
          Pros: Dries Quickly, Easy to Apply, Easy to Use, Even Application, Good Coverage, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Looks High End

          EnviroLite LED backlit high bay lights are the perfect solution for commercial lighting needs in garages, warehouses, gyms, manufacturing space, and large retail spaces. With an enclosed power supply and covered optics, these light fixtures are designed for durability in commercial/industrial applications. They are designed to save energy and lower maintenance costs. The LED light engine inside this fixture uses 30% less power to produce the same amount of light as a fluorescent fixture. This is a low maintenance solution that eliminates the need to replace power supplies and light bulbs because the light source is integrated in the fixture. Because it's LED, you will never hear the hum that fluorescent fixtures make. This High Bay provides 5,000K CCT daylight at 10,000 Lumens (similar to a 5 lamp fixture). EnviroLite commercial lighting fixtures are built with LED chips that last for 50,000 hours of continuous use. Fixtures are ETL listed and can be installed in damp locations, and they come with a 5 year warranty. These high bays are UL rated for wet locations, are dust proof, and can withstand rain from any direction.

          I think that I may have overdone it when I installed this fixture in a laundry room. Man is it bright! It's a great light fixture regardless and it looks pretty good in there. It was easy to install, but didn't come with a canopy or escutcheon of any kind. I had to scavenge the canopy form the fixture that I replaced which I find to be unusual. Most lighting fixtures come with the appropriate installation hardware.

          Inspired by the natural wood that drifts onto the Nordic shores of Europe, our driftwood mantel is the perfect combination of art and function. This mantel has a unique finishing process that emphasizes the natural grain pattern of the wood while capturing a picture perfect driftwood gray color. Our mantels are handcrafted out of Alder wood in the USA. Each mantel is hollow and hung with a easy to install cleat.

          This shelf/mantel is very attractive and is also functional. It's large enough to place items on and can be used as just a shelf or literally as a mantel when installed above a fireplace. I'm renovating a rental unit which will contain a home-office and have installed mine in that portion of the unit as a stand-alone shelf. My tenant loves it and it matches the wall color and the flooring perfectly. I do have one issue with this item however; the system by which it hangs and attaches to the wall isn't the sturdiest system I've ever happened across.

My tenant loves it and it matches the wall color and the flooring perfectly. I do have one issue with this item however; the system by which it hangs and attaches to the wall isn't the sturdiest system I've ever happened across. It's basically two 1" x 2" pieces of lumber approximately 5' long both of which have been cut at angles. One lays on top of the other and are held in place by screws inserted vertically through the top-rear side of the shelf. I attached one board to the wall with Tap-Cons and the other comes as an integrated part of the shelf. Even so; it's only rated at 40 lbs. and a shelf of that stature should be capable of handling quite a bit more weight than that in my opinion. Regardless; it's a very nice product and I'm happy with it. Read Less
          Pros: Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Stylish
          Cons: weak attachment system

          I absolutely love motion sensor switches and this one is no exception. There's nothing better than the peace of mind that comes from not having to concern oneself with turning lights on or off. No fumbling for the switch in a dark room and - better yet - no wasted electricity! When someone enters a room the lights come on and when that person leaves...voila...they turn off automatically within the time frame that the switch has been set to. It also has a photocell which stops the switch from turning on when the room is already adequately lit. This type of switch may or may not be practical for the kitchen Read More

          Not a whole lot to be said about these zip-ties...they're zip-ties. That said; they are as good as any that I've used and I recommend them. I'm accustomed mostly to black and white versions, but if one wanted to color-code his bindings these and Industro's other colored zip-ties would be ideal for the job. Definitely appropriate for any job that requires zip-ties.

          ETi's 40″ LED Shop Light is designed to replace your traditional fluorescent fixture. This is an energy-efficient, long-lasting lighting fixture used to illuminate typical applications such as a tabletop, utility room or workbench. With the adoption of LED technology, the performance exceeds that of fluorescent lamps, making LED versions of a shop light a technical no-brainer. Lightweight, height adjustable, easy to install and there is no need to replace any bulbs for up to 50,000 hours of continuous use. The overall benefits of LED lights vs fluorescent lights hold true for shop lights - longer lifetimes, lower electrical consumption, no mercury. Not Dimmable - 5 Year Warranty
