          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.
          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.

          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, lightweight
          Cons: one side is completely unstained and unfinished

          I used 4 different colors of this product to do a multi-colored accent wall. The "Charred Wood" variety is the color that I had the most problems with. The boards were cupped in multiple boxes making it very difficult to install flat on the wall. I was able to put a lot of nails in the product to make it relatively acceptable, but due to the warping, this charred wood color sticks out further than the other 3 colors on the wall.
          Also keep in mind that with the darker colors of wood, chipped edges and flaws are much more obvious. I included a picture of the edges with how you could easily see the chipping. The boards came in the box this way.

          This product provides a cheaper alternative to buying expensive grow tents. I lined a wire shelving unit with this film so that my seedlings would get more light from my LED grow lights. I taped the film to the wall. For the sides of the shelving unit, I taped the film to some cardboard and attached it to the shelves. I included some pictures of my setup.
          The mylar film comes in a roll and is about the thickness of some thin christmas wrapping paper. For this reason, taping it to the wall or to some cardboard is necessary. It cannot freely hang just on its own. It does tear and get scratched up easily so take that into consideration.

          Replicating the texture and dimension of the natural movement of rolling water in a fountain, the Merola Tile Fountain Square Blue 12 in. x 12 in. x 5 mm Porcelain Mosaic Tile features various shades of blues in sporadic tones and patterns. Set on a light blue base, darker muted navy and cobalt colors features speckled tones, mimicking shallow water. An impression of additional depth and dimension is created by a smooth and sleek glossy glaze. With a unique reactive glaze technique, each chip is different from the next, allowing for a completely unique installation. Constructed of porcelain, this mosaic is best for walls or light traffic floors in indoor and outdoor settings, including showers, powder room floors, and backsplashes. Color: Speckled Blue / Mixed Finish.

          These tiles are perfect if you are looking for the classic white and blue bathroom look. They have a real timeless look to them.
          The design of the tiles, I would describe as kind of a crackled paint looking design.
          The tiles are super well made. They would be ideal for a shower or bathroom floor. The tiles are sold as separate pieces, but there were 10 pieces in each box that I received.
          Pros: High Quality of Material, Looks Great

          With carpet tape to keep them in place, these treads are a good product. The carpet is well made and feels nice underfoot.
          These treads definitely do not stay in place when pets and kids are involved. I have included a picture showing the treads flipped over and moved out of place after only two hours. This was only with a cat running up and down them.
          You'll definitely need some carpet tape with some types of stairs. In my case, I have these on basement stairs. The stairs are painted with porch and floor paint with a Rustoleum Rock Solid brand flooring top coat. The treads slip right off them.
          Pros: High Quality of Material, Looks Great
          Cons: needs carpet tape to stay in place

          Answer: 
          You can use a center sink counter top for this vanity. I used a glacier bay countertop Model # 2237SQ-SLV3. A sink with those dimensions would work just fine. However, be careful which sink you do choose. If the sink is too wide or deep, it may interfere with the drawers. You'll also need to ensure your plumbing from the wall won't interfere with the drawers in that set up as well.

          Answer: 
          No part of the outside gets hot. I touched the grate over the heating element and it was not particularly hot. However little pinkie fingers might fit through the grate holes or some stick object could get poked through the holes. I would say other than that it's pretty safe as far as space heaters go.

          This is rated for a dry location, but as long as it is 3 feet away from a shower or bathtub, safety codes in most locations will allow for a light fixture rated as "dry" to be installed in the bathroom as long as there is good ventilation. If it is directly above a bathtub, it needs to be 8 feet higher than the tub which usually isn't possible.

          If you believe any water will ever come in contact with it or that it will be subject to an unusual amount of condensation, you should look for a fixture rated for damp locations. You will be hard pressed to actually find a pendant type lighting that is rated for damp though.
