          This is is almost over the top for my usual, kind of masculine design sense, but it works! Just enough "bling".The light shining out from the crystals all around makes it unique. I used it as a central ceiling light in the master bedroom, but it could work in a number of different spots. It doesn't put out a ton of light with the diffuser on the bottom.

          I wish more companies would make mini-spreads, 4 inch faucets with no deck-plate, but barring that It is difficult to find unique faucets in the 4 inch size, so when one comes along it is a must-have. The waterfall spout is unexpected and attractive. A definite plus is having the pop-up drain included at this price point, especially one with a drain catch.

          This is a nice vanity for a good price. I particularly like the new trend of integrating a larger sized area for the sink rather than the smaller, scooped shape basins of recent style. I am always wondering though that when a manufacturer chooses to name a color something like "elm sky" why a better picture, perhaps an in scene one, isn't included to better represent the appearance of the shade, even though it does mention gray.

          The Pale Rider Gray Mantel Shelf captures the raw and rustic nature of a beam that has a story. This product is composed of Alder planks with a smooth barn gray finish. This product is commonly used as a floating shelf where practical. Kit includes everything you need to attach to studs for a seamless and easy installation. Built in America, built to last.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          This shelf came with an incredible overabundance of packaging that took tools and 45 minutes to get off. After getting through the straps, cardboard outer wrap, corners, box, plastic, bubble wrap, paper and internal plastic I was underwhelmed. Poor, uneven staining, inferior quality wood with holey knotholes didn't seem to match up to the sticker price. I guess they spent it all on the over the top wrap. It came only with the french cleat bracket, no included hardware as described online in the assembly instructions (missing those too). I'm sure I could create this item (better) myself with about $40 worth of materials.

          If you need a little more room for those big pots and pans, and still enough room to handle other things too, this Glacier Bay premium quality 23 in. sink is the perfect answer to your needs. The deep bowl lets you handle large tasks, while not taking much space in the kitchen. Handcrafted from high quality, virgin 304 18-8, heavy gauge stainless steel and sound insulated with noise absorbing pads plus under spray, this sink is built to last.

          When I see the Glacier Bay name I don't usually expect a higher quality product but it seems in recent years that standard is changing and I see more and more high end items from them. This sink, to be utilized in an island as a second sink, has all the bells and whistles. Features compare to the way pricier brands and having the accessories included is great.
