Living Room Chaos

September 20th, 2011 · 6 Comments

Chandler, Arizona home with a cluttered living room.

Movie collection!  In a Phoenix living room.  About 20 videocassettes per shelf, six shelves per bookcase, five bookcases; about 600 movies.  At $5 each, that’s $3000 spent.  At $10 each, that’s $6000 spent.  Would take you almost 2 years to watch each one again.  If they’re DVDs, double the number.  And about 50 family photos.

Different Phoenix living room.  Seems neat and organized (A+ for symmetry), but it blocks the window.

Bathroom Fixer

September 19th, 2011 · 5 Comments

I get a sinking feeling this poor bathrooms needs a lot of help.  Hopefully there’s a buyer willing to plunge into it and that it won’t drain his/her bank account.

The original 1950s/1960s shower tile looks great.  But what else is going on?
