Sticker Tape Parade

Should be really easy to remove the stickers and wallpaper border, right?  How about that dusty ceiling fan?  And notice there is no flooring.  It’s only concrete.  See the carpet pad glue lines?

TV Viewership Is Up

January 3rd, 2014 · 4 Comments

People really like to watch television.  Some like to watch movies too.  At this Phoenix home, the end credits show Bruce Langhorne as the music composer for a movie.  Bruce composed music for 16 films, most notably Melvin & Howard (1980), The Hired Hand (1971, a Western), Stay Hungry (1976, with Arnold Schwartzenegger), Outlaw Blues (1977), & Night Warning (1982).  Since the last two are not available as dvds and since the scene shows a car not a horse, we can eliminate most, leaving Melvin & Howard as our best guess.  But who would really want to watch Melvin & Howard in 2013?
[Update: Thanks to David, the movie shown is Fighting Mad (1976) with Peter Fonda]

Oh, look, there’s a fan watching Teen Mom.  It lives in Camden, New Jersey.

There’s a slat missing at the window.

They are watching a football game instead of a home staging TV program.  Hint, hint; it might help this room look better.  Why is there plastic on the wall by the clock?

Bears & Guns & More

July 22nd, 2013 · 4 Comments

There are so many treats for you to see with this Mesa, Arizona home.  Click on each photo to expand.

Home purchased for $300,000 in 2007.  Sold recently as a short sale for $145,000.  In this condition.

That’s quite a collection of stuffed bears.  And a gun collection too!  And a safe.  And a 1990s valance with pastel colors.  Sure looks like a 1980s vintage Apple computer (see the reflection in the mirror).  A 1970s waterbed frame & headboard.

More stuffed animals in the next bedroom.  Plus jugs of water (the bears get thirsty!).  And a stethoscope (because?).  And dream catchers.  And fuzzy dice!!  So many fun things to see.

In the master bedroom, the bed is on concrete blocks!!!  Check out the dust on the ceiling fan blades!!  Arm pad is missing from the chair.  Ugly window.

And in this bedroom, Spider Man is wearing a cowboy hat!  Arizona Cardinals football bedspread and other items.  And then there’s a Denver Broncos football blanket as a window curtain.

In the family room, at least 9 persons can sit comfortably.  The towels helps absorb moisture; it gets hot in Mesa.  Prescription bottles on the left and right sides of the photo.

How many bedrooms does this house have??!  An unmade bed.  That weight bench seat looks like it’s cardboard.

And a room converted to a bedroom.  No wonder they have so many chairs and sofas.  Please note the bottle of rum on the dresser.  And then the bottle of whiskey next to the Sugar Pops cereal box and the skull!!

There’s seating for six persons out back.

Family Assistance Needed

June 4th, 2013 · 3 Comments

These five family rooms need staging help quick.

Rent-a-Center repossessed the TV.  Now she can’t hide the pile of dust on the TV stand.  She hasn’t hid the ashtray full of cigarette butts either.  [Minot, North Dakota]

The bottle of bleach is not needed in this Olean, New York family room.  Just some boxes and a few hands.

Disheveled in Sun City West, Arizona.  Two old TVs.  They still work, I’d bet.
