This is a little story about the lazy people who have lived in our house before us.
Once upon a time the walls in the master bedroom were white.
Someone came along and decided to paint these walls a winter-fresh blue. They also decided to mount a very ugly swing arm reading lamp to the wall.
Someone came along and decided that the walls would be much prettier a lilac color. This person was only a bit lazy. They should get kudos for taking the lamp cover-plate off of the wall before painting around the wall bracket.
Along came a very very lazy, but slightly better color inspired person who decided to pain the room a tan color. This person was SUPER lazy and didn’t even remove the cover-plate before painting. They were, however, very generous and left the ugly swing arm reading lamp installed on the wall for us. Oh. Joy.
The real gift was removing said lamp and finding the “history” off the wall laid out like a mosaic. All because people couldn’t be bothered to remove a lamp to paint the walls. *sigh*
