Swan Dive

February 7th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Swans etched into shower door glass were popular back in the day.

The swan turned back into an ugly duckling. How do you squeeze past the vanity and the door to get to the faucets?

170207b

Cleaning that grout must be loads of fun.

170207c

The home’s second bathroom appears to have be renovated by amateurs. Note the uneven grout lines.

Sigh.

Please Do Not Urine

January 24th, 2017 · 6 Comments

Please do not urine on the toliet seat. Thank you very much. We aim to please; you aim too, please.

170124e

We don’t make this stuff up, folks. These are actual photos from a house for sale. Check out the hole in the wall behind the toilet.

170124a

Cluttered bedroom.

170124d

Another cluttered bedroom. The description of the house states that the owners moved out and left their items behind.

170124f

The new buyer gets to handle all of this.

170124b

This bedroom is used as a crafts room. Notice the Wasp & Hornet Killer spray can.

170124c

Double oven.

170124g

Pink ceiling in the family room. It almost looks like carpet! Two oxygen tanks in the corner, because this house will take your breath away.

170124h

No smoking.

170124j

And we’re told the air conditioning does not work.

170124k

All this can be yours, if the price is right.

In golf, an eagle is two under par. How fitting that this eagle-themed bedspread is below par.

Mountain lions in the next bedroom. I visited this house during a Realtor home tour last week.

The Love Tub

January 22nd, 2017 · 1 Comment

Romantic heart-shaped bathtub for two! Bring on the bubbles and the bubbly!

170122reginasask1

These were sent from our reader Landon. This is from his 1983 Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada home. The bathtub is surrounded by 8″ tile and smoked glass mirrors (typical of the 1980s). The house had seafoam green/blue carpet, mahogany wood trim, parquet wood flooring, and Zest-soap-colored countertops.

Holiday Inn Wants Their Towel Back

January 15th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Our reader Karen sent us these photos of an Aberdeen, Maryland home. Here’s evidence of a stolen Holiday Inn towel! Shame on them.

170115aberdeenmd1

The other bathroom has a busy look. Let’s remove all the stuff on each side of the shower.

170115aberdeenmd2

Which looks twice as bad when it’s reflected in a mirror.

170115aberdeenmd3

Yes, it’s a game room, but the rifle could go, as well as the Pepsi clock and life preserver.

170115aberdeenmd4

When you enter the house, you see visual clutter. Clear out the foyer.

170115aberdeenmd5

Nice home. Just needs tidying up here and there. Moral of the story: present your home in the best manner and don’t steal hotel towels.

Calgary Stampede

January 8th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Thanks to our reader Helen for sending us these photos of a Calgary, Alberta, Canada home. Helen is nervous about the antlers falling down on someone while they sleep.

170108calgaryab01

Perhaps this is the mother-in-law’s room? Sweet dreams, “Mom.”

170108calgaryab02

In this cowboy-inspired home, we’ll see several bedrooms and bathrooms. Here’s a cluttered bedroom/bathroom combo.

170108calgaryab03

Over the bathtub, it reads “Save a horse, ride a cowboy.”

170108calgaryab04

Another view of this bedroom.

170108calgaryab05

Another cluttered bathroom. With exposed vanity storage. A heated towel rack with towels missing. An exposed incandescent light bulb directly over the bathtub. And a thick wood frame over the sinks with no mirror. The frame reads “howdy.”

170108calgaryab06

This is embedded into the floor.

170108calgaryab07

This bathroom has two showers. So when the cowboys come home from a hard day of roping cattle, they can take showers at the same time and reach around for warm towels.

170108calgaryab08

Another cluttered bedroom with exposed ceiling.

170108calgaryab09

It has its own kitchen.

170108calgaryab10

Here’s another bathroom. A dustpan is available near the toilet.

170108calgaryab11

The shower looks like this.

170108calgaryab12

The bathroom is also the laundry room. The mirror is there so the cowboy can admire his hat while he pees.

170108calgaryab13

Here’s the main kitchen with a million bottles on the shelves. Looks like they spent big money to add Venetian plaster to the ceiling.

170108calgaryab14

What are all of those bottles? And why are the kitchen cabinet drawers and doors missing?

170108calgaryab15

Yes, that’s John Wayne on the back of the chair.

170108calgaryab16

Cluttered bonus room.

170108calgaryab17

More antlers and clutter.

170108calgaryab18

And we finish with another bathroom. Sure to upset 50% of buyers and please 50% of buyers, the toilet seat lid is completely removed. Yee haw!!
