          This vanity is really great looking and solidly built. With the matching mirror and white vanity it looks like a much more expensive piece. Just make sure you mount it into studs cuz it's a little heavy.
          Pros: Sturdy, High Quality, Looks Great, Stylish, Good Size & Weight

          Perfect-90º, a paper laminated composite tape from Strait-Flex, is designed is twice as fast, twice as strong, finishes in one coat, resulting in half of the work than using conventional paper or mesh tapes.

          I've used this tape for a while now and nothing compares for price, ease of use and dependable results. It goes on easily, cuts like a charm and because of the way it's designed usually only needs one good coat of compound and a little touch up sanding for a smooth professional corner every time.
          Try to cut it the accurate length cuz it's not that easy to cut it on the wall. Then coat the corner with a thin layer of compound or "butter" the tape itself after cutting and bending into a 90 degree corner. Stick it in place and carefully, with a 12" wide compound knife, apply a good even layer of compound and keep going over it until it's smooth and perfect.
          Pros: High Quality of Material, Easy to Apply, Easy to Use, Looks Great

          Big straightens large framing irregularities, spans large gaps and isIdeal for obtuse angles and outside corners. Huge resists dents and paint chipping, cuts easily with a utility knife or scissors, applies with all-purpose joint compound, and will not rust. Manufactured from Strait-Flex's patented composite material, it is extremely strong and will not fuzz-up when sanding. To apply, measure and cut to desired length, then fold in half with the printed sides facing each other. Apply all-purpose compound to corner. Press Huge into the wet compound, adjust to create a straight line, and wipe down with a taping knife. A second coat can be applied immediately. Let dry. Apply a light skim coat, let dry, and sand.

          I do a lot of sheet rocking and this is the best composite corner tape I've ever used. It's really wide which is great when your corner isn't super straight. It goes on easily and is tough and durable. If your corners are super straight I'd use a narrower corner tape so you don't have to use so much compound, but if you're only going to buy one 100 ft roll, this is the one to get.

          Beautiful finish on this cabinet. Looks much higher priced. I also like the hardware; sleek and modern yet traditional. The top is clean and fits well. Overall an incredible bargain. You go HomeDepot!

          OK, I know color is not the test of a paint, but this "Eiffel" color is fantastic. I've had lots of compliments on it; warm stylish and cool. The paint itself is thick and rich and covers extremely well. You can't go wrong with this paint.

          This HDX replacement refrigerator water filter fits in place of GE MWF contains a compressed carbon block which provides tremendous capacity to remove and/or reduce impurities and sediment that may be present in your drinking water. The carbon block has millions of active sites on its surface and within the structure which can absorb impurities like a sponge, and can absorb and hold other types of impurities on its surface like a magnet. Additionally, this filter can catalytically breakdown other impurities very similar to the way a catalytic converter works in your automobile. These processes ensure that you are getting the cleanest and best tasting water possible. This economical filter will provide you with fresh and clean tasting water and ice cubes.
           

          I installed the filter and now cant get any water to come out of the door

          I have installed this and water will no longer come out through the water and ice dispenser on the front of the door. I have held the water spigot open for an extended period of time thinking the filter had to fill up first but that didn't seem to to work either. I also reinstalled it and still the problem exists. What could be the problem?

          Answer: 
          Try taking it out and seeing if there is some kind of plastic cap that is blocking the inlet. Also try blowing in the center hole, you should feel air coming out of the wider hole. Lastly, re-install your old filter and see if it still works; if it doesn't then something got up into the filter hole. Try and get it out. If that doesn't work, call the manufacturer. They will get to the bottom of this.

          Answer: 
          Sure, as long as the ceiling is smooth, flat and free from grease, dirt, etc. A clean surface is absolutely required, and the tile must be pressed hard and left overnight before grouting.

          Stop the slam with this soft close adapter that quietly and smoothly closes cabinet doors. It can be adjusted by the turn of a screw to the desired closing speed and is the perfect retrofit solution. This damper is easy to mount in the upper corner of your cabinet.
           

          Would these soft close door dampers work on a door going from the kitchen to the garage?

          Answer: 
          I'm not sure; they only engage about a half inch out, so it would depend on how heavy the lid is. It's worth a try, I guess.
