Wall o’ Mirrors

March 23rd, 2015 · 2 Comments

There was a time when mirror tiles covered entire walls.  [Houston, Texas]

It’s a reflection of the times.

They added faux brick (bric-a-brac) to jazz up the mirrors.

Fixer-Upper

This home needs a lot of help. There are a lot of details to iron out.

Notice how the refrigerator is missing in the photo above and is now seen on the far right side in the photo below.

Ugly, dirty cabinets.  Dirty ceiling.  Dirty kitchen.

As we pan right, we see two cans of Raid bug spray and a knotted curtain.  Ugh.

In the next room, past the knotted curtain, we have to wonder how those books are still standing.

At least they are patriotic.

There’s that knotted curtain!  It makes a statement.

The bathroom is less cluttered than expected.

The curtain rod fell down before the closet shelf did.  Just barely.
