I moved into a new home with my wife last month, its a fairly modern home and looked likeonly recently had it been refurbished and decorated. We loved it instantly and decided to put an offer in, which was accepted. But unfortunately we got a bit of a surprise when we moved in!
I’m guessing the last owners couldn’t be bothered or couldn’t afford the decorating costs. They had not moved the furniture when decorating. So when the furniture was moved there were shapes left on the wall depicting where a tallboy was, a chest of drawers, bookshelves and so on.
So this meant redecorating every room in the house, the furniture was a brilliant disguise! A costly job for us though, as you can imagine I was far from happy!
