It Made an Impression

July 22nd, 2014 · 1 Comment

This Phoenix home made an impression on our reader Jayne, but not a good impression.  This is the master bedroom, for example.

The sellers trimmed their olive tree.  They lion-tailed the branches.  Also known as lollipopping.  It’s a topiary terror.

Or it’s a spaceship on the bottom section with aliens waving around.  Thank you, Jayne!

Thank you, Diana, for sending us photos of this Wesley Chapel, Florida home.

Slip covers on the couches!  Pink and tan are an interesting color combination.

The table to the right of the sofa is crooked.  Please straighten it.  Thank you.

That pink carpet sure looks like it’s holding up well.

Euro style cabinets were all the rage in the late 1980s & early 1990s.  What would make the kitchen divine would be to de-vine the plastic plants.

One of our readers, Mario, sent us these photos.  The city is unknown.  The bathroom did not impress Mario.

He wasn’t thrilled by the brick wall in the living room.

Before Bedroom One.

After Bedroom One.  Because the walls are brick, it was difficult to add electric wiring through the walls.  They had to add electric conduit along the back wall.

After Bedroom Two.  New windows.  But no electric outlets on two walls.

For Your Consideration

July 8th, 2014 · 2 Comments

It’s a short sale.  And the seller is sitting right there, watching TV.  Is there anything he could remove from this room to make it look more enticing to buyers?

What could he work on in the kitchen during commercial breaks?  Clearing off the counter, sink, and refrigerator?

And clear off the dining table and remove the multiple wall calendars?

There’s room for improvement in the bedroom.
