          This review is for the 2 pack that includes 2 gallons of the Pearl Gray paint.
          I would first like to point out that the Pearl Gray color of this paint is very, very light. When the paint was wet, it looked nearly white. Once it dried, it was darker, but still a light grey color. I nearly panicked when it was wet because I thought I had accidentally gotten white paint or something. When it dried, it was much more acceptable. This paint would be a nice contrast to a darker grey color if you are painting a stencil or pattern, otherwise, I probably would not recommend this light floor color for a high traffic area by itself.

This paint would be a nice contrast to a darker grey color if you are painting a stencil or pattern, otherwise, I probably would not recommend this light floor color for a high traffic area by itself.
          I used this paint on an unfinished basement concrete floor. It looks fine for a basement and definitely makes the area look very clean. (A darker color would have been better.) I included pictures of the floor contrasted with a white painted wall. One thing I will note is that this paint will not fill in or hide small or hairline cracks. They will still be visible in your floor.
          COVERAGE: I got about 275 square ft per gallon for the paint. Keep in mind that this was on concrete so the coverage will go much further on a non-porous surface. The top coat was way more true to what the package said. I would say 400 sq ft for the top coat is accurate. For this reason, you may need less of the top coat than you do of the paint. 3 gallons of paint was enough to cover over 700 square feet of concrete. I used under two gallons of the top coat for that area.
          This floor painting system is a bit more expensive than other floor paint alternatives, but it comes with the topcoat that other floor paint doesn't. The topcoat definitely makes it easier to mop and keep it clean. However, still don't expect to be dragging heavy things across a painted floor.
          The paint rolled on easily and covered well despite it being a light color. One coat of each step was adequate for my project.

          Pros: Easy to Apply, Easy to Clean
          Cons: pearl gray is a very very light color, obviously you cannot drag heavy things across it

          The Merola Tile Celadon Aqua 11-5/8 in. x 11-5/8 in. x 6 mm Porcelain Mosaic Tile features tranquil hues of powder and light sky blue for a coastal chic appeal. This tile includes individual square pieces that each have various geometric and chevron patterns to create one unique mosaic sheet that is available in five print variations randomly scattered throughout each case. An illusion of additional depth and dimension is created by a smooth and slightly raised glossy surface, which provides a stunning design. Its impervious and frost-resistant features make this an ideal tile for floor and wall installations including, backsplashes, fireplaces and powder rooms. Tile is the better choice for your space. This tile is made from natural ingredients, making it a healthy choice as it is free from allergens, VOCs, formaldehyde and PVC. Color: Aqua / High Sheen.

          This review is for the "aqua" colored tiles as I used two colors for my flooring project. These aqua tiles are a light blue color. To me, I didn't think that they were greenish like how many aqua colored things sometimes are. The pattern on this version of the celadon tiles is more noticeable than the other colors of the celadon tiles. The pattern includes the light blue color and an even lighter almost white color.
          I would first like to point out that these tiles are bigger than you might expect just looking at online pictures. These are not the small square mosaic tiles that you normally see in places like shower floors. The individual squares in this mosaic are much bigger. (Nearly 2 Read More

For this reason, it would be a good choice for a medium sized bathroom floor. There would be less grout lines and bigger tiles.
          I compared the weight of these tiles to another 12 inch porcelain mosaic. These Celadon tiles were weightier and seemed to be of a really good quality. The tiles are textured so you may want to make sure that they are comfortable on your bare feet. I thought they were just fine. If you are using them for a shower floor, it is a benefit because it provides a bit of traction.

          The Merola Tile Celadon Graphite 11-5/8 in. x 11-5/8 in. x 6 mm Porcelain Mosaic Tile features a truly black color tone for an elegant industrial appeal. This tile includes individual square pieces that each have various geometric and chevron patterns to create one unique mosaic sheet that is available in five print variations randomly scattered throughout each case. An illusion of additional depth and dimension is created by a smooth and slightly raised glossy surface, which provides a stunning design. Its impervious and frost-resistant features make this an ideal tile for residential floor and wall installations with light foot traffic. Tile is the better choice for your space. This tile is made from natural ingredients, making it a healthy choice as it is free from allergens, VOCs, formaldehyde and PVC. Color: Graphite / High Sheen.

          The first thing I'd like to point out is that these wall panels are a much lighter gray than I was expecting. I was expecting a darker medium gray from the pictures online. However, in person, they are very, very light gray. (See my pictures.)
          I actually do really like the wall panels though. They are definitely 5 stars for ease of installation and convenience. They are easily cut to whatever size or shape you need. Its good if you have a window to work around. They would also work as a surround for a bathtub as long as you had the 72 inches of vertical space above the bathtub. Your base, whether it is a shower base, or bathtub, just needs a lip.

          Can I use Center to sink for this vanity

          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.

          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 this be used in a bathroom?

          Answer: 
          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

          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.
