* OK, you ASKED for our thoughts... this is mine: ugly. purely and simply ugly.

Instant inferno...just speaking practically.

In the bathroom it makes sense...

Price Check on Kleenex Cottonelle, I repeat...

Someone couldn't part with their shredded documents.

AussieJane said...

Long time follower, first time poster. And for my first post - fugly. Toilet paper as a decorative feature is not clever and far from attractive.

need a post it?

I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house down

NK said...

wouldn't the chandelier go up in flames? just saying. try having that on a wall with little kids around :) it will be their favourite toy (for as long as it lasts). Or is it only my kid who loves to ruin ALL of our toilet paper?

First thought, you couldn't have a smoker over for dinner. Too risky.
Second thought, reminds me of those pinatas my kids beg for every single birthday.

my favorite and my best- MFAMB to you said...

diy.

Stupid. And, after it turns gray from all the dust and cobwebs...ugly!

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

Ok, the only place I don't totally hate it is on the headboard wall.

The kitchen fixture (its a light??) is reminiscent of in junior high school going to the bathroom, smoking a butt and wading up wet toilet paper and throwing up on the ceiling hoping it will stick. Eventually the ceiling would become a yellow mess of toilet paper stalagmites. Not pretty.

My first thought? While in the 4th grade my daughter had to make a paper mache volcano. That thing in the kitchen reminds me of it, only upside down.

Jessica said...

interesting to look at but this is stunt decorating, no? this wouldn't last long enough to be "real"

Kate said...

recycling bin was full?

So, Cinderella, you're back!

I hope the sprinklers never go off.

Interesting! Let me just say Happy Valentine's Day instead of my real opinion!

Mallory High said...

Fire hazard. Or, at the very least, putting inhabitants at great risk of paper cuts.

Kathy said...

O.K......I know that I'm going to get lambasted for this...but I kinda...sorta...like it. Anyway, the person who created it is obviously talented with a distinct vision.....it's also probablt temporary. I know....EVERYTHING is temporary....but it is inspirational. Alright...everyone pile on now!
Happy V-day R....k

As a paper whore, I appreciate the craft and all that—in theory. Aesthetically speaking, I'm not feeling it. As the owner of a dog who enjoys marking things, all I can see is pee-stained paper, and that is not OK. (Sorry, anyone who is reading this while eating.)

nkp said...

Why?

Teresa said...

i kinda get this on some level. wanting to be creative and express yourself through your home, but not having any $$$. i see this as a diy out of frustration. don't judge.

nanne said...

i wanna hit the pinata!!!!

nanne in indiana by way of alabama

tulpen said...

no.

that is my only thought.

WTF? People who burn down forests are called arsonists, yet people who turn a forest into an elaborate fire hazzard like this are called artists.

Raina said...

AussieJane, courteneykay, Mallory High, Mr. Goodwill Hunting, and Teresa - Hello to each of you and welcome to this deliciousness!

laurel said...

Everyone's posting about fire hazard... but what about cleaning?? Tell me what happens after someone cooks and it splatters or people walk along and trail their fingers along the wall... soon it'll get like those notebooks you lug around in your bag all the time. Not to mention... it's pretty ugly, sorry.

God help them if there's ever a leak in the roof.
