Home Office

July 2nd, 2017 · 2 Comments

Our reader Sarah wants to know why there are office chairs at this Wilmington, Delaware home. With laminate flooring, they probably roll around very well. Let’s hold a staff meeting and ask the cat if he knows.

When I bought my house nearly 22 years ago, there were interesting drawings inside my kitchen cabinets. A beautiful smiling sun still remains behind my microwave. I have stenciled pigs in my pantry. And this is what is under my kitchen sink. (the hole on the right is abandoned galvanized piping in my 1960 home; replumbed with copper)

Change Me

May 28th, 2017 · 2 Comments

My sister-in-law saw this bathroom in Fort Collins, Colorado. She felt the Koala diaper changing table might put off buyers. The sponge-painted walls might do the same.

Paint Fail

May 23rd, 2017 · 3 Comments

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen sponge paint or faux paint. That ugly trend had disappeared in Phoenix until now.

Did they use a baby diaper to sponge the wall?

And did these sellers use a baby diaper to smear against their walls?

Grecian Nightclub?

February 26th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Our reader Eileen sent us these photos of a home in Greece, New York. For sale $200,000 below comparable properties in the area because…its owner reportedly owned about 50 properties in a money-laundering scheme for drug sales. $10 million in drug sales from 2013-2014 were recorded in a ledger found at this particular property; 1 kilogram of cocaine = $36,000. High finance, for sure! Here’s a link to a new article.

The house looks like a nightclub with several dance floors.

Rapper’s Delight: Hip hop and go-go dancers in this room, complete with photo mural of New York City.
