Entertainment centers, also known as media niches, were popular in the Phoenix area. Until TVs got wider and not so deep. The extra storage spaces all but guaranteed they would be filled up.
This unique set-up allows for a television to be placed in front of the niches.
It looks like they cut holes into the drywall to create the niches.
Media niches also appear in Albuquerque, New Mexico, as seen here.

Piles of stuff in a Prescott Valley, Arizona home.
Perhaps the local high school is doing a fundraiser car wash and needs lots of towels?
Lots of cleaning supplies and yet a dirty toilet.
There’s toilet cleaner on the window sill!
Another unmade bed.
They parked their car on the front yard.
Who called a taxi?

Thank you to our reader Cheryl for sending us these groovy photos of a 1971 home in South Lyon, Michigan.
They replaced the avocado green refrigerator. Bummer.
Wallpaper was very popular in the 1970s.
Just wait ’til these colors come back in fashion.
And more wallpaper in the hallway.
What fun times back then.
Notice that the curtains were not knotted back then.
These drapes might be from the 1980s.
What parties might have happened down in the basement?

hours minutes building your own fire pit.
Now invite your friends over to enjoy it.
Just be sure it’s dark outside before they arrive.

Taking photos in bathrooms can be challenging. It’s hard to hide yourself from reflecting in a mirror. The solution: open the medicine cabinet door and hide behind it! Brilliant!!

Knotted curtains continue to show up in Phoenix area homes.
When will people stop knotting their curtains?
Can we set up counseling for people compelled to knot their drapes?
Enact legislation to outlaw knotted curtains?
Boycott homes with knotted curtains?
I’d rather see pouf valances return than see knotted curtains.
At least these drapes weren’t knotted. Only tied with string and twisted.

Dogs in a basket. And that faux distressed brick look.
Another puppy. Pee on the floor? Damaged ceiling. And more. Are you feeling distressed by this?

Wonder where they found that tile.
Wonder who decided on that pattern.
Wonder how much it’s going to cost to remove it.

It is what it is. Buyer have an idea about what is is.
