Please Define What “Newer” Means

May 29th, 2017 · 5 Comments

This photo’s caption reads, “Newer built-in micro(wave) and plenty of counter space.” The house was built in 1989 and that sure looks like the original microwave & oven. So….28 years old = newer?

My sister-in-law saw this bathroom in Fort Collins, Colorado. She felt the Koala diaper changing table might put off buyers. The sponge-painted walls might do the same.

Less Knotty

We haven’t seen many knotted curtains lately. Hopefully that ugly trend is dying out.

Please be the last photo of a knotted curtain we ever see. Such a stupid design trend.

Cabin Joy

May 24th, 2017 · 4 Comments

Summer is almost here. Phoenicians will be dreaming of cooler temperatures in the mountains of Arizona. Perhaps Crown King, Arizona? Here’s a cabin with a stove to keep you warm.

May I have some hot cocoa please?

Here’s another view of that room.

Paint Fail

May 23rd, 2017 · 3 Comments

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen sponge paint or faux paint. That ugly trend had disappeared in Phoenix until now.

Did they use a baby diaper to sponge the wall?

170523a

And did these sellers use a baby diaper to smear against their walls?

Why couldn’t the photographer or seller remove the Bite Me pillow for the photo? Do you like the wallpaper?
