Gaudy Vegas Carpeting In Missouri

February 13th, 2014 · 9 Comments

Thank you, Jon & Amber, for sending these photos of a Florissant, Missouri home.  The seller purchased it for $60,000, remodeled it as you will see, and listed it for sale at $125,000.  It is now priced at $110,000 and hasn’t sold.  Hmmm.  Wonder why it hasn’t sold.  Could it be the carpet???

The seller is a tiger in bed.

In true Vegas style, the master bedroom has a hot tub!

Water cascades down the stone wall into the hot tub.  Very romantic.  And damp.

The living room is the first thing buyers will see.

And then you see a tribal mask with googly eyes.

Even the chairs have crazy color patterns.

The sellers reduced their asking price by $15,000.  Here’s a thought:  they could have spent $5,000 installing new carpeting, kept their original asking price, and been ahead $10,000.

There’s carpet on the walls of the wet bar!

Who wants carpeting in a kitchen?  At least the crazy colors will help hide stains.

They remodeled the bathroom with a black toilet and black pedestal sink.  And carpet in the bathroom?  Yuk.

Five Media Niches

February 3rd, 2014 · No Comments

Media niches (aka built-in entertainment centers) are great for displaying small TVs and electronics and everything else.

They’re also great for displaying cords and wires.

And for collecting and displaying dust.

Sometimes they’re not used for televisions.
