Pipes in the lounge
The day we moved into this house 7 1/2 years ago, we were simply too excited to be bugged by anything. It wasn't until the next day that the true horribleness of these fitted shelves made of MDF hit home.
Ripping those babies out was one of the most fun things I've done in a long time. Can you guess what ornaments were on them before they went?
Once they were out, they revealed some quirky plumbing. the pipes came across under the floor upstairs, through the ceiling in this alcove, crossed over each other twice before disappearing under the concrete floor and recrossing the house back to the front again. They got ripped out too.
Did they really think painting them chamaelion style would stop anyone noticing?
