BBQ, Fire Pit, Or Fish Pond?

August 26th, 2016 · 2 Comments

This odd, submerged structure with the metal grate in the middle is either a BBQ grill or a fire pit where people gather around (with no seating) or it is a fish pond.  I doubt it’s a fish pond; there is porous flagstone on the bottom.

Home Staging Needed In Virginia

August 21st, 2016 · 1 Comment

Thank you to our reader Della who sent these photos of a Spring Grove, Virginia home.

It’s not a good sign when you see clog remover right next to the sink.  And there could be kids living in this house, so that becomes a safety issue too.

Hopefully that’s not a fly strip hanging from the light.

If they’re fishing for complements on home staging, they’ve come to the wrong blog.  What’s that saying?  Spare the rod, spoil the child?  More like, display the rods, spoil the sale.

Back Splash Ideas

August 19th, 2016 · 2 Comments

Plain walls in kitchens are boring.  Why not spice things up with peel-n-stick vinyl squares on the walls?

Or use tile shards as a creative mosaic back splash?
