    Price: $67.26+ (available in five colors)

    8. An industrial bar cart everyone will love to see, even if it's not filled with booze. It's just as nice in the bathroom holding towels and toiletries!

    bar cart with black metal and natural wood shelves

    Promising review: "I LOVE this bar cart. It's multi-functional and looks great in any room. I decided to use it as a wine bar/coffee bar. It holds so much! I also love how sturdy this piece is. My only issue when putting it together was that I had too much confidence and didn't read the instructions thoroughly, which resulted in having to take the legs on and off three different times. I definitely recommend reading the instructions as you go. The pieces look similar but they are marked for a purpose! I liked how all the screws and tools came in an organized package which made the process much easier." β€”Dani

And the best news is the tiny bit of floor space it takes up. Plus it looks good! It was relatively easy to set up, despite not-so-simple diagrams. As a retired forms designer, I was itching to redesign and simplify the directions. But love the product, and would buy it again." β€”CatWoman

    Price: $75.62+ (available in four colors)

    10. An Edison lamp and wax warmer for some multi-tasking steampunk-chic decor.

    12. A reversible L-shaped desk that looks a lot like β€” dare I say it? β€” Megadesk.

    desk with three drawers and a whole shelf on the other side

    Promising review: "You can not beat this desk for the value. It looks like a $1,000 desk for less than $250. Instructions are extremely easy to follow. It said it takes two people 30 minutes to put together and I can see that being a possibility if you were familiar with furniture assembly. It took us longer than that, but we were taking breaks and rereading the instructions. As I said, the instructions were easy to follow; we did not have to redo anything and we did not mess anything up. The hardware comes in a sectioned out plastic tray so that saves you a TON of time because you don't have to sort your screws. Overall, I would recommend this desk 10 out of 10 times." β€”Jennifer

    Price: $253.78+ (available in three colors)

Definitely a great purchase indeed!!" β€”Joseph

We all have experienced caddy's sliding back and forth on the shower head but with this one it does not. You have to unscrew the tension screws.
