anaquana: seperis: ballsballsbowls: mysharona1987: If you don鈥檛 think the house looked cooler and more delightful before, then I don鈥檛 know what to tell you. Not to mention the house isn鈥檛聽鈥渟habby鈥 in those pictures - the paint鈥檚 spotless, the molding鈥檚 intact, the stairs and windows are maintained.聽 I grew up in the rust belt and this house looks better than about 90% of the houses built before the 90s in most neighborhoods. This house has been maintained meticulously and lovingly at great expense. It鈥檚 not聽鈥渟habby鈥: it鈥檚 a non-neutral color with intact Victorian details that you removed because how dare a house have unique features on the outside, what will the neighbors think? I say this as someone whose friends and family have to make them buy colors when shopping or my wardrobe woudl be nothing but black, white, beige, grey, and my super racy delve into brown and hates all the blue-teals like whoa鈥. WHO THOUGHT MAKING THE COOL TRIPPY VICTORIAN INTO A GODDAMN HELLHOUSE? This is uncanny valley shit; that house is going to kill everyone and drink their blood for some goddamn color in its life. 鈥od, can you imagine the operating room-level neutral inside? This monstrosity was done by a fucking house flipper, of course. I saw the listing for it and they completely destroyed the inside of the house as well. I was so pissed I couldn鈥檛 get through all of the pictures. My husband and I bought a fixer-upper Victorian and while we鈥檙e not keeping her period authentic, we鈥檙e damn sure keeping her interesting and beautiful. She鈥檚 currently a drab white, but we鈥檙e getting her painted this year and that gorgeous teal is exactly the color I was thinking about doing her in. : SF SFGate GATE Before and after: The dramatic transformation of a shabby West Oakland @SFGate Feb 10 Victorian dlvr.it/QyZmYp 244 3.2K 1.8K OR4NOW Follow @Or4Now Replying to @SFGate When I first read this, I thought you were referring to the one on the right being shabby & I was in agreement.
