Stoned & High On Glue

October 1st, 2017 · 4 Comments

From the town of Roosendaal in the southern portion of The Netherlands…a home filled with glued-on stones. Enjoy the tour.

The owner decided to decorate the walls and surfaces with rocks and stones and pebbles.

Check out the bathroom.

Well, at least your guests can’t do lines of coke on the toilet tank lid.

The grotto.

The Scarface picture is a nice touch.

They started adding rocks to the ceiling.

There is unique art work throughout the house as well.

The main bedroom.

What imagination.

Such artistry.

Check out the leopard chair in the entry.

Where do you buy such stones in The Netherlands? Does Amazon Prime deliver there?

Stone-washed jeans in the laundry room?

If this home was in Phoenix, you would need a leaf blower to clear the dust away from the stones.

Why must they suffer?

Knot Bad In Detroit

March 5th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Our reader Tyson stayed in this Detroit, Michigan condo via airbnb, despite it having knotted curtains. Pointless decoration. Why block the view of downtown? And it would take too long to unknot each panel. (sigh)

Thank you to our reader Jennifer for finding this very unique home for sale in Avon, Connecticut. There’s a lot to see and lots of photos to share. Enjoy.

The seller added goop to the staircase risers.

161016avonct02

There are smears and goop all over the kitchen.

The kitchen, we think.

The breakfast room.

161016avonct05

More goop in the parlor. Even the piano was painted.

161016avonct07

The bathroom.

161016avonct08

161016avonct13

At least the curtains aren’t knotted.

161016avonct10

A closer look.

161016avonct11

More goop on the door. There’s a lot of sanding required to remove the goop.

161016avonct14

Another look at the staircase.

161016avonct12

Let’s look at the bedroom now.

161016avonct09

Gauze for alarm?
