Before & After Remodel

April 15th, 2017 · 6 Comments

Too Much of a Good Thing Is Not Wonderful

March 27th, 2017 · 5 Comments

Multiple items. Multiple patterns.

170327a

Overly decorated living room.

170327b

Assault on the senses.

170327c

Visual distractions.

170327d

If buyers could see past the stuff and notice the high ceilings and nice flooring.

170327e

Too much furniture for a small space.

170327f

Giant bed.

170327g

Too much going on.

170327h

Themed bathroom. Looks very small.

170327i

Again, too much furniture for a small space.

170327j

Less is more. Hint hint.

Howl You Rate This House?

March 6th, 2017 · No Comments

There’s a wolf at your door. Watch out!

170306a

When you step out of the wolf bedroom, you might trip over the extension cord. The staging in this house is bananas.

170306b

Minimalistic kitchen with no upper cabinets or counter space or dishwasher.

170306c

Looks like they replaced the original counter and sink since the “new” one doesn’t line up properly. With all those hair care products and toiletries, you’d think the mirror would not be on the right of the vanity and that there would be better lighting.

170306d

Another bedroom.

170306e

And one more.

Taking a Step Back

February 27th, 2017 · No Comments

Looks like someone took a step back and missed the toilet when peeing.

170227a

Now we’re in the kitchen.

170227b

We then step back into the dining room.

170227c

And then we step back into the living room.

170227d

More holes in the laundry room.

170227e

Another room for improvement.

170227f

Pine tree air freshener saves the day.

170227g

Someone please help this house.

Eclectic Home In Avon, Connecticut

October 16th, 2016 · 22 Comments

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 appears to have an artistic quality, with embellishments throughout the house. The stair balusters are covered in fabric.

161016avonct01

The seller added goop to the staircase risers.

161016avonct02

There are smears and goop all over the kitchen.

161016avonct03

The kitchen, we think.

161016avonct04

The breakfast room.

161016avonct05

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

161016avonct06

Check out the ceiling.

161016avonct07

The bathroom.

161016avonct08

Another bathroom.

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?

161016avonct15

The window panes were painted.

161016avonct16

The dining room.

161016avonct17

Walls and ceilings were touched in every room.

161016avonct18

Gauze and effect. How would you remove the gauze and goop from the walls?
