          We took these and cut them in half and used them as a border at the bottom like a base and at the top of the wall like a trim with something else around the middle. I was skeptical but this was my wifes's design and I just followed her lead. In the end it turned out nice. The little splash of metallic color this gives is a nice addition.

          Frankly I was skeptical about how these would look in a small bathroom. But I let my wife take the reins on room design and trusted her instincts. And in the end it looks good. We used this on the floor and the wall of a small guest bathroom. We are both very please with the look. We mixed in some other stuff on the walls but this matched it all well.

          Pair this 32 in. Pre-Lit Laurel Villa Artificial Wreath with matching pieces to create a holiday oasis. It includes a timer function that allows you to place the wreath in hard-to-reach areas without having to turn it on every evening. The wreath is pre-decorated with gold ornaments, gold berries and red berries. It is also wrapped in 35 warm white LED lights for a soft glow.

My wife is the more critical one of these sorts of things because she was a florist and she’s pleased with it too. So that says a lot. I have a number of wreaths on the house at Christmas including a big 5 foot one with 100 C9’s woven into it and no other decorations on it. This one will go well with my display (probably on my kitchen window). This will be a static element in a display of a bit over 50,000 lights sync’d to music. You don’t want everything flashing on and off all the time. I was not able to put lights out last year due to an injury but this year I’m back and adding a lot of new elements. I’m ready to see how this and my other new additions weave into the display. If it was not 96 degrees I’d start putting things out now.

          This is a very solidly built good quality light with great output. About the only downside I can see is that it does not come with a charger.

The focusing mechanism if well made and covers a wide span of adjustment from a very broad beam to a pretty narrow one. It is handy that it has a small hanger built into the magnetic base. I found the utility of that when I went to stick it to the underside of the hood on my jeep and realized that thing is made of aluminum so a magnet was no use on it. Up till then I though I’d use the magnet for pretty much just about everything where I wanted it to hang. So it is pretty well thought out. Of this one and the other I got that uses the same light but is packaged a bit different and uses disposable batteries my personal preference is the one that uses disposable batteries (by a small margin). But both are well done and that just comes down to personal preference since either gives plenty of light on a run. Read Less

          The PM300 provides a compact, focusing work light that runs on 6 x AA alkaline batteries. With a 360-degree rotating handle and a magnetic base, the PM300 is well-suited to a variety of work-site locations and needs.

          Does it come in other sizes ? I've been using the 12 inch one for about 6 months now and am very happy with the way it cooks and how well it is holding up to practically daily use. I would not mind buying a couple smaller ones as well like say a 10 inch and an 8 inch.

          I don't really have much of a question just an amusing observation to pass along and since you can't modify reviews here it is.
          I put this up a week ago and it is indeed really nice - large, solid, well finished and easy to open and close. Piece of cake to mount.
          Today I had a post-it note left in the box with the days mail from the mail carrier lady. It said she loves this box !
          It was kind of funny to see and I'm glad she likes it too. Obviously she appreciates a smooth opening and closing box.
          I guess if you have to open and close them all day that would not go unnoticed. some certainly require more effort.

          To make this a question and thus kosher to put here I ask the populace...
          Has anyone else had a compliment from the mail carrier ?
          I'm just curious.
