Cabinets To Go Syracuse NY Review Kitchen Bath Wood Cabinet

I was looking for new kitchen cabinets in the Syracuse NY area and I was having a difficult time finding anything modern.  Everything was so traditional looking.  I kept looking and finally ended up at Cabinets To Go in Syracuse and I’m so very happy I did.  Cabinets To Go sells Kitchen and Bath Wood Cabinets, flooring, vanities, and more.

Here’s my review:

I had the best most favorable experience with Cabinets To Go in Syracuse. The entire staff was professional and both courteous as well as patient with me as we went through all the different cabinet options, accessories, designs, etc. Ryan my salesperson was incredible throughout the process and I would absolutely go back and do business with him again.

The cabinets I ordered came in very quick and they were very accommodating in terms of letting them stay there in their warehouse until my hardwoods were done and I could pick them up. Upon unboxing them, I found that these particular modern cabinets were a bit complicated (they’re not all like that I assure you) and I needed help in getting them assembled. I called for help and the manager George dropped what he was doing midday and came out to my house to assist. In the end, he ended up taking his own free time after work to help me assemble the cabinets – you have no idea how amazing that was.

I now have great cabinets at a fantastic price. I could not recommend Cabinets To Go more!!!! Great company that stands behind their product.


Modern Americanflat 11×14 Black Picture Frame

If you love classic elegance with a modern twist, these Americanflat Black Picture Frames are a must for your house. They are rich looking, not goudy in any way — just straight up classic black wood with a nice finish to them. They’re not overly glossy which I like and they have a nice white mat which makes it easy to drop in your artwork or picture and have a beautiful piece to hang on your wall in seconds!

It comes with the standard mounting hardware and the back comes off easily so you can change the art or picture at any time with ease.

The best part of this black picture frame is the modern look which goes with any decor. Highly recommend this to anyone looking to hang a photo or art on their wall!

Here’s a lifehack tip. You can actually printed an inspirational quote you find online or even send it to a photo printer like Walgreens, Shutterfly, Walmart, etc. and print it to the size you want — put it in the picture frame, and it makes great inspirational quote wall art. It’s perfect. No need to go to TJ Maxx or Marshalls to find quotes. Just click. Print. and Voila.

This is a fantastic frame for the price. I highly recommend it!

Great black and white geometric pillow cover!

I was looking for something different to break up the solid colors of my sofa and accent pillows in a modern funky way.  This pillow cover is a very artsy black and white geometric pattern that really brightens up the room.  It went on perfectly, had enough room for my 18×18 pillow insert, and it didn’t feel like the zipper was going to break when I closed it up!  So many feel cheap when you try and zip them up…. not this one!  It’s durable feeling and not too overly rough.  It makes a great accent pillow cover!

Paper Photo Frames 4×6 Clothespins String DIY Wall Decor Crafts

I wanted to get something that I could decorate our engagement 4×6 photos in a very cute and fun way – something that’s classy and elegant but also adorable and unique.  I found this 4×6 inch photo frame kit that included mini small clothespins along with burlap twine style string.  They agreed to allow me to purchase this at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.  I have no affiliation with the company whatsoever.

The photo frames come in quantities of 3 of white, black and natural tan (brown ish?) color.  They fit the photos well and there’s not a lot of cropping that occurs.  The photos will have a rounded corner look that makes them modern and sleek.  The twine isn’t very sturdy but for the purposes of hanging up photos, it does the trick. (You can always buy better twine if you need/want!)  The clothespins are tiny, smaller than I thought – but it works.  If you wanted colored or larger clothespins, you could buy them.  For the price of this DIY Wall Decor kit, you really do get a lot of bang for your buck.  It looks great!  You can pin it to a corkboard at work, attach it to the wall, put it outdoors for a photo shoot with a wooden fence in the background (had some ideas from pinterest for that one!)

Overall, this is a pretty great craft kit for 4×6 photos. I think it’s adorable!

InnoGear Motion Sensor Closet 2 Pack LED Lights Stick On Magnetic

So, first of all – how this product is worded – you would think it would work as an under cabinet tap light.  Let me be clear, there is no tap function whatsoever.  It may resemble the type of tap lights you may see in a hardware store – but there is no tap function at all.

And the motion sensor – well this only works when the lights are out and it’s dark enough to trigger the motion.  So my question to InnoGear is very simple – how can we use this as effective under cabinet lighting when typically you’ll have some other light in the kitchen on and just require additional light.  I think the company has a good solid product, just how they’re marketing it makes no sense.

I did receive this for free in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.  I have no affiliation with the company and here’s the rest of my thoughts on this product.

The way this product works best is in an armoire, closet, pantry, or other place where you really don’t have good ambient light.  This is where the product excels. Using it as a closet or cupboard light is perfect because you can stick this to the underside of a surface (like a shelf or top of cabinet) and as soon as the door is opened the light turns on.  It’s a nice bright warm light that is easy to see with.  Now for this purpose the light works great.  But certainly there’s no tap light as the amazon listing says there is.  I strongly recommend they look at changing this product’s nomenclature to reflect exactly what this product is and is not.   It requires 4 AAA batteries, which aren’t included.  Pretty standard for lights like this.

This product comes with one-sided tape on one side and magnetic bar on the other.  Ingenious.  If you want to make it a magnet light, tear off the protective film from the double sided tape and stick it to the light.  Instant magnetic light.  If you’d prefer to use this as a stick on light, just tear off the protective film from the double sided tape and stick it to the surface of your choosing.  The magnet holds the light in place and if you need to take it down, the mounting for it stays on the surface.  Now that part of this light I like a lot.  It’s stylish, looks great in any decor. Very modern looking. They’re good work lights so you can see what you’re doing but was very confusing when I first read this listing.  I truly thought I was getting a 2 pack of lights I could tap on at any point.  You cannot.  And that’s actually a huge disadvantage of this design.  If they can improve it by allowing the user to turn on the lights at any point — 5 STARS ALL THE WAY.  Right now, I have to say it’s a 4 STAR light if you’re only looking for a motion activated light for your closet, pantry, cupboard, etc…

Stainless Drink Cups – Connect with your beverage!

When you think of steel cups, you think cold.  You think indestructible.  You think modern.  Unbreakable. Stylish. Modern.  All those things describe these #SteelHere Stainless Steel Drinking Cups!!!!  This set was sent to me for free or heavily discounted and in exchange I would provide them with an unbiased and honest review.

I love them.  Plain and simple.  They’re great for outdoors because they can go around the pool, on the patio, and not worry about them dropping and glass breaking everywhere.  They’re great because they can go in the dishwasher and not melt!! (i’ve melted many glasses in my day!)  Most importantly…. they allow you to CONNECT with your beverage.  I love the feel of the cold on my hand as I drink a frosty beverage.  They feel great!!!  It actually makes me want to drink more water and beverages like iced tea because I just love the way the glass feels in my hand. I should say the way the steel feels in my hand.  I also like the fact that they’re BPA free – so I feel more safe using them.

It’s the perfect addition to any house.  Great set of cups!!! Highly recommend!
