Those dreaded knotted curtains are back.  And they’re badder, er, worse than ever.

Here they are from a different angle.

Knotted curtains are like a virus.  They spread to other windows in a house.  Notice the sloppy paint line at the ceiling.

We don’t luv knotted curtains.

Either knot them both or none.  We vote for none.

None, please.

How is a buyer supposed to exit that door with a giant knot hanging there?

Giraffe?  Make it stop.

We Are Knot Pleased

February 10th, 2014 · 5 Comments

We’ve asked nicely many times to please make it stop.  No more knotted curtains!  But they keep showing up.

Perhaps these El Mirage, Arizona sellers thought the knotted curtains would give their kitchen a certain je ne sais quoi?

These sellers showed restraint.  They only knotted one curtain, not all three.  For that, we somewhat thank them.  TV’s on!

Maybe they thought if they didn’t tuck the knot behind the sofa that buyers wouldn’t notice the pile of clothes?

Two giant knots, four pillows, and six suitcases.

Knot a good idea.

The dog thinks the curtains look like a bat.  He’s ready to attack the curtains.  Looks like he attacked the counters.
