This was hard for me! And it is because there are so many ugly things in my house.
Things I didn't choose:
Trey's Guinness Mirror
The unfinished tile in the bathroom
My tub filled with shoes (ha ha, just kidding. I totally cleaned that out yesterday)
The gold inlays in the glass on my china hutch
I could go on and on and on.
Our house was built in 1986 by a well-known builder and it has these little touches that are really cool. And then you see stuff like the pictures below and you can picture some dude with MacGyver hair cut drawing out these plans while chewing on some fruit stripe gum and rockin' his designer acid-washed jeans nodding and thinking, "Man that is so bitchin'." And you want to grab him by his shoulders and shake him while yelling, "DON'T DO IT!"
Here is what I did choose.
Can you tell what it is? Maybe the popcorn ceiling is a good hint. How do you like the wood trim, faux beam, and cob webs?
Here it is in profile. Sorry for my shoddy camera work. It just didn't want to be photographed properly.
Here it is panned out a bit. No, we still have no doors on our cabinets. I'm learning to live with it.
As I was putting away the clean dishes and thinking about what the ugliest thing in my house was, one of the ballasts in this beast went out. Seriously. This thing was begging to be featured on the blog. As Trey got out the ladder to replace the ballast I begged him to get a hammer instead. No dice.
I can't wait to see if anyone else decided to participate! Can you beat this thing? (Like literally... will you bring over your hammer?)
