This Whacked-Out House

Chad and I are starting to look at houses and we found one online that I have to share with you.

Seems like your average brick house, doesn't it?

Why don't we take this opportunity to share some tips on interior decor? Like paint color, for instance. There are a couple of ways you can pick paint colors. You can look through magazines, visit other homes and thoughtfully craft together colors that will complement your home and reflect your personal tastes.

Or you can smoke a lot of crack and then head on down to Sherwin-Williams to pick out your colors:

If you could see a migraine, this is what it would look like:

Want a nice, relaxing bath? Then you'd better go next door, because it ain't gonna happen here.

Needless to say, we did NOT make an offer.

    Or, just ask Ronald what color the booths are at McDonald's, and go with that!

    Call me nutty, but I'm guessing you can get that for a deal and fix it with $30 worth of paint. Does seem like an otherwise nice house -- at least the BATHTUB wasn't orange (we've seen one of THOSE!)

    Since its a buyers market, I bet it would be likely they would add in an allowance to have the house repainted to your specifications at their cost. It would be a win - win situation too. They sell and you get the colors you want.

    I'm curious what their realtor is telling them and how badly they want to sell!

    Just get some paint and do your on thang!

    Paint covers a multitude of sins and this house has sure been sinful!

    Anonymous -- you're not kidding. I think it was a house of prostitution and the Kool-Aid man was the pimp.

    If you decide to re-paint then consider the fact that you'll have to buy an olympic-size pool full of primer just so that you get bleed-thru!

    It looks like Heidi from Trading Spaces designed them!

    Oh my goodness . . .that's some color, huh? And here I made the decision to not paint the girls' rooms pink and purple (one for each room, not the 2 colors combined)because I thought that would hurt when we finally sell!

    I so could not live in that house .. . even for a night!

    It's like What Not to Wear for a house! YIKES! But I bet you could get it for a good price if you wait long enough and have the patience to paint. I re-paint every house I move into anyway so as long as it is just paint, not wallpapaer or something semi-permanent like carpet, tile or counter tops...I say go for it!

    Kiltz first then the color(s) of choice. At least it is not horrid wall paper. Like anonymous said, "paint will cover a multitude of sins."

    Were the sellers oriental?

    I think the homeowners need to watch a few episodes of "Designed to Sell."

    I think that house is in our neighborhood . . . scary!

    OH MY ! There isn't enough primer in the state of Texas to fix that! Can you imagine how much it would cost to cover that. If they would knock off about $10,000 so you could hire a painter, maybe. It's awful cute otherwise.
