Wood Paneling Wallpaper

June 22nd, 2014 · 4 Comments

Take two outdated home decorating techniques (wood paneling and wallpaper) and combine them into one!  Wallpaper with a wood paneling pattern!  Brilliant.  [San Antonio, Texas]

The wallpaper is sagging on the walls and peeling on the ceiling.

Keep the room clean, the house is going to sell this coming _____.  So reads a note in a Rialto, California home.  This is the original photo.  Not sure why it was taken as a close-up.  To show off the hole in the wall?

Why do sellers leave their TVs on when real estate photos are taken?  This needs to be investigated.

By leaving the TV on, now buyers are forced to see Kristen Stewart’s face.  Thanks.

Yesterday Was Flag Day

June 15th, 2014 · 3 Comments

June 14th is Flag Day.  A day to proudly display the American flag.  Here are some home sellers with their own versions of displaying the American flag.

Wrong!  The flag was hung backwards.  The blue field is supposed to be at the upper left.  [Phoenix]

Wrong!  The flag is backwards in this Tempe, Arizona home.

The blue field is in the upper left, so bonus points for that.  But using the American flag as a window curtain is not cool.  [Jonesboro, Arkansas]

These Wickenburg, Arizona sellers used the flag as a curtain, but at least it wasn’t a real flag.

It’s not backwards or over a window.  Thank you.  [Superior, Wisconsin]

What a difference a room makes.  The living room (with American flag) is neat and tidy in a Marshfield, Missouri home.

But when you get to the dining room, bam!  Clutter & family photos.  And an American flag.

Old Glory.  Long may it wave.  [Goodyear, Arizona]
