July Writing Prompts, Day 26 – Misaligned and malevolent

From Putting My Feet in the Dirt (https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/), July’s prompts are here: https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/2019/07/01/july-2019-writing-prompts/

And today, July 26, the prompt is “Misaligned and malevolent”.

As I work on various rooms in our house to renovate them, and by renovate, I mean paint because, well, that’s about the extent of my reno skill, I discover old renos misaligned at best, bordering on malevolent.

Why is there a big chunk of wood screwed into the wall to hold a mirror?   A nail not good enough for you?

Why are there two layers of wallpaper in the bathroom, ONLY behind the toilet?  Couldn’t just take off the tank and do it right??

Why, oh dear lord, why did you wallpaper over unpainted drywall????

Master Bedroom 6

Every room an adventure in prep before painting, discovering the malevolence within.

  1. We did the same thing with our wallpaper and the funny thing is that it was the same pattern of wallpaper!

    • The one thing I have definitely learned working on this house – I will never put wallpaper up…ever! It’s probably harder than painting anyway…

  2. You are enjoying your vacation?

  3. Well, I can’t speak to the other things, but the block of wood might be a French cleat. 🙂
