You are way off on the electrical. I have a 650 sq. ft. condo in Seal Beach, CA and I run the AC 24/7. My highest electrical has been $47 and it's an all electric condo (stove, oven, water heater, etc.).

Perfect. Now little Chatsworth can get used to having an ankle monitor early in life. He doesn't even have to be convicted or go to court. House arrest for babies. What a world.

Yes "even strangers to give feedback on photos you post online" can happen if you post your pics for headpats or pimp them for page views. Otherwise, it's called privacy settings.

I can only imagine the scrape marks on those floors once someone actually has s.e.x. on the mattress.

Amazed anyone would purchase this after doing "a bunch of research". Did you just ignore the multitude of poor reviews?

I flushed tampons from the age of 11 through 49, in at least 12 apartments and 5 homes. Not once did I have any toilet issues. Apparently milage varies on this issue?

Just curious why you ultimately vetoed the idea of wallpaper?

There is nothing you can do besides apologize and bear the cost of professional restoration. After a couple of years it'll probably make a good "family story".

I had a three story cedar planked A-frame that looked a lot like yours. I used a mustardy yellow, and also a brick red. Both looked fab with the wood. I can't help with green or blue suggestions as I didn't use any. Good luck!

I think it's a great improvement. Before it looked like no one lived there, or was in the process of moving in or out. Now it looks like a fun place for the family to hang.

Personally, I think a "giant" anything in the front yard is tacky, but I bet all the little kids playing cowboys or cops and robbers think it's pretty cool.

I understand feeling some awkwardness about confronting a SO over a bad gift when you're just dating, but for pete's sake girl...you're living with this guy. I would thank him sincerely for his heartfelt gift but I'd also tell him it is not to my taste and seeing it every day would not endear him to me in any way. It would only become more and more of a thorn in my side and a constant reminder of how his taste was wildly divergent from mine.

If you can hang this and not feel resentment grow, then you're a much better woman than I. LOL. If you keep it, then I hope there is a pair of pink plaid pants in his future for Valentine's Day.
