Father’s man cave. Notice the well-maintained leather couches.
Wall-to-wall stuff. Check out the “thou shall not whine” sign.
The father’s son’s room. Completely filled.
Walls and ceilings are completely covered, thanks to dad’s example.
Dad’s bedroom. No surprise here.
This is not how we suggest staging a home when selling.
The father’s teenage son has taken over the guest house, with decorating help from dad.
The son will likely pass on his habits to his offspring.
What is that?!
More ugly couches were found this week. Enjoy!
Talk about flair. It has wings.
Notice the reflection in the TV.
A true delight.
Our reader Michael sent us these photos of a San Diego, California home.
Let’s remove the stuffed animal on the couch, the outdated poster of movie stars at the diner, the bicycles, the fan, the ladder, the vacuum cleaner, the fake logs, the Budweiser sign, the cords, etc.
The dust pan, the trash can… And look at the dirty arms on that chair!
Too bad this house is cluttered. The wood floors are beautiful.
MilkBone dog biscuits.
Cluttered kitchen too.
This house could look so much better.
The bathroom needs help. This house isn’t ready to be shown to buyers.
Nine rolls of toilet paper in this bathroom.
Paper towels along with clutter. Looks like a nice bedroom. Too bad you can’t tell.
The back of the house with wood deck.
How about this lovely sofa from Lyman, South Carolina? The macramé owl is available too.
Floral fun in Phoenix.
A sense of formality in Sun City, Arizona.
And a delightful blend of colors in Yarnell, Arizona.
This sofa’s a little worse for wear.
An assault on the eyes.
Today we are celebrating the 1970s in a Palm Springs, California home. [I marked the category “Not Ugly” because the house is in such pristine condition.] This is a listing in Palm Springs from one of my college fraternity brothers. Please enjoy the 1970s flashback. Groovy!

Looking for new furniture for your home? We have some suggestions.
Try a patterned fabric so it hides stains.
A busy pattern will attract attention from guests.
The couches complement the lovely lamps.
A wave design adds a sense of flow to the sofa. Placing the rug askew creates a jaunty look.
Multi-colored fabric allows for millions of decorating options with color.
Protect your investment with plastic covers.
There’s no accounting for taste. These chairs were popular back in the day.
