          This Cantinero Shot Glass Serving Tray will make a nice addition to any bar area or entertainers kitchen. It would also be a great gift item for someone that entertains in their bar area. The wood base seems to be made of a good quality piece of acacia wood. The 6 glass appear to be a super great quality as well with a weighted bottom so they stay in place when carrying the tray.
          Pros: High Quality, Looks Great, Sturdy

          This Walker Edison Furniture Company 36 in. Grey Wash Urban Industrial Mid Century Modern Metal and Wood Ladder Desk is perfect in a smaller bedroom. At only 36 inches wide it is large enough to store needed desk supplies but yet only takes up 36 inches of wall space. To help sturdy the desk up the final step to assembly is to anchor the desk to the wall. I don’t feel the desk is un-sturdy at all and don’t feel it would tip over but anchoring it to the wall makes it rock solid. It took me about 1.5 hours to assemble.

Since the desk is mounted to the wall if you have any power cords there isn’t room to run them down and along the wall. It would be nice if the desk top had a hole in each cubby so you could run power cords. The finish on the wood top and shelves is super nice and it looks like this desk will be perfect in my daughter’s bed room. Read Less

          The large S-Biner #8 has dozens and dozens of uses. With dual spring gates and double functionality, the S-Biner #8 is a 2-in-1 tool that has as many uses as you have medium sized things you'd like to organize, keep track of, or carry with you in an easy, hands-free way. Made of strong, lightweight, durable plastic, it's strong enough to connect necessities to stroller handles (diaper bags, laundry bags, grocery bags, backpacks, boat railings, ladder rungs - anything you might want to take along when you're out and about). It also makes hanging and organizing in sheds and garages a snap.

          This Nite Ize Plastic S-Biner 3 pack has countless uses. My daughter is using the two smaller clips in her locker and backpack at school. I am using the larger clip to organize the plastic bags I receive from the grocery store for future use. The larger ring will hold nearly 100 bags. Next spring I plan to buy some more three packs to put in my fishing boat to organize equipment. The clips are made of hard plastic and the springs are super strong. The large clip measures 3.5 x 8 inches. The medium one is 2.5 x 5.5 inches. The small clip is 1.5 x 3.5 inches.
          Pros: Durable, Nice Design, countless uses
          Cons: wish you could buy a 12+ pack

          I installed this Lyric Top-Mount/Undermount Stainless Steel 33 in. 4-Hole Single Bowl Kitchen Sink into my bar in the basement. I enjoy smoking meat and the basement bar is where I prep work. This sink is perfect for my operation. The sink has 4 holes so if you are going to top mount the sink you need to have a 4-hole faucet. If you are going to under mount the sink it can be under mounted using just one hole for the faucet and one hole for the soap if desired. The sink doesn’t come with a drain so that will need to be sourced from HD before the installation. The installation is pretty straight forward.

The sink doesn’t come with a drain so that will need to be sourced from HD before the installation. The installation is pretty straight forward. The kit comes with a template that shows where to cut the counter top depending on how you intend to mount the sink. The directions tell you to mount the drain before you place the sink into place and I’d also recommend installing the faucet before you place the sink so less time is needed under and inside the cabinet when installing. Since the sink is 33 inches wide your base cabinet has to be at least 36 inches wide. The cabinet comes with the tie down clamps. I found that since the sink is so wide that the clamps on the sides are super hard to install. Finally the sink come with a lifetime warranty. Read Less
          Pros: Convenient, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great

          This 8 oz. Lemon Lavender Solid Pet Odor Absorber and Air Freshener works really well in smaller areas. I first put this freshener in the basement living room by my yellow labs sleeping crate. This room is relatively large. The freshener didn't seem to work very well in a large room. I then put it in the master closet and it worked great. I suspect if you are going to use it in a large room that you will need more than one and at less than $3 I think that is a solution. The freshener says it is Lemon Lavender. I can definitely smell the lemon but can't smell the lavender.
          Pros: under $3, great in a small space
          Cons: need more than one in a large room

          Does the bottom rack use the door for rack wheels to ride on or does it have fixed glides the rack is attached to? Racks that run on the door with wheels are unstable and get dislodged easy and tough to reposition when rack is full of dishes.
