          This towel bar unfortunately is not perfect. The matte black color is sleek and stylish, however the design is marred with gray plastic parts. The part that connects the rod to brackets is a gray plastic. It sticks out like a sore thumb. I included a picture of the area that I am speaking of. It was pretty disappointing.
          Otherwise, I enjoy the modern look of the towel bar. I like how the rod is a rectangle rather than tube shaped. The matte black color is perfect for a modern bathroom.
          Pros: Nice Design, Stylish
          Cons: gray plastic piece is tacky

          I have had nothing but problems with the washer. On the quick wash setting, the washer was extremely loud to the point I could hear it from 2 floors up.
          I did a load of laundry on the bulky setting, the washer began making a loud ratcheting noise and the agitator wasn't moving properly. I included a video of the sound that it made. There was also the feint smell of burning. I called for service and basically every part of the washer needs to be replaced. Mainly the transmission.

However, the transmission part is not available and there is a very long wait time for it.
          My biggest concern for the washer is its reliability. The washer is supposed to "sense" how much laundry is in the tub and fill the water to the correct amount. With all the rest of the problems that I've had, I just don't know about this washer. Read Less

          I used 4 different colors of this product to do a multi-colored accent wall. The four colors that I used in my project were Charred Wood, Barn Board Gray, Coastal Ivory, and Reclaimed Brown.
          Overall the Barn Board Gray boards were all usable. I did however have significant warping problems with the Charred Wood color so keep that in mind if you are using multiple colors. This gray color was definitely my favorite of the 4 as it had a lot of color variation just on its own. It is also a very neutral color that would do with nearly everything. The gray color boards did have much more knots in the wood than the other varieties though.

          There are some chipped edges. I included a picture of the edges. The flaws are much more noticeable on darker colors.
          You can either make a clean cut on the edge to get rid of the chips or use some touch up paint. The "finished side" of this product is smooth. The back of the product is just more rough. You can use either side that you wish. The rough side is a darker gray color.
          What I really like about the product is that the boards are very light weight. I previously did a similar accent wall with laminate and laminate is significantly heavier and much harder to install on a wall. This light weight product could really be installed by anyone without much problem. Read Less
          Pros: Good Size & Weight

          Of all the different boxes that I used, this reclaimed Brown Planking had the least amount of flaws and no warping. The boards were nice and flat and easy to work with. I did however have significant warping problems with the Charred Wood color so keep that in mind if you are using multiple colors.
          The "finished side" of this product is a pretty medium brown color. The back of the product was unfinished and rough. You would only be able to use the finished side of this particular color.

          Answer: 
          This vanity has an 8 inch wide set configuration (which means that there are 3 holes that are far apart) You would need an 8 inch cover plate (called an escutcheon) or individual hole covers to cover up the other two holes.
           
          Blending both contemporary and rustic design is this interior pendant. It's a statement piece that will complement a dining room, foyer or game room. You will need six 60-Watt candelabra bulbs (not included) and it has a hanging height of 85 in. with a 72 in. chain and 96 in. wire to complement.
           

          Can I use a candelabra base bulb without the bulb being tear drop shaped as recommended in the specifications?

          Answer: 
          I am pretty sure you can use any shape bulb as long as it is a candelabra base. It would probably fit as there is plenty of room.
