You know how people watch sports and yell at the television and argue with the umpire/referee’s calls? Well, I do that with home makeover shows.
I do that less with flipper shows: Ones where people buy a run-down house and make it beautiful or where the homeowner has input. The one I’ve watched so far is:
Hoarder House Flippers (Hulu)
The ones I have on my list to try are:
The ones I argue with are the ones where the homeowners are surprised with a makeover or are given limited options. I’m always like, “WHY did you rip up that beautiful hardwood floor and put in an UGLY hardwood floor? WHY did you get rid of that door — that door was AWESOME? WHAT made you think a cooktop on a kitchen island where people are going to be sitting was a good idea? You call THAT a good use of that space??? Did it never occur to you that the homeowners had that on the wall because they WANTED that on the wall? A white couch and a glass coffee table — SERIOUSLY? — What part of ‘We have two small boys’ is hard to understand?”
Ones I want to try:
Dream Home Makeover (Netflix)
Those ought to last me for a while.
I grabbed a stamping plate at random again:
I did an undercoat of O.P.I.’s Suzi Chases Portu-geese (hey, I don’t name ’em, folks), and topped it with L.A. Colors Color Craze’s Intimate. The blue stamping polish is Maniology’s Celestial, the pink stamping polish is Maniology’s Sweet Peach, and the rose gold stamping polish is Born Pretty’s Pink Planet. The stamping plate is Maniology’s M259.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: A well-meant but unpleasant surprise.
