Ah, there are so many surprises you might find when you buy a resale home. I was at a friends house in League City for the Superbowl and they told me about a couple of surprises...
Here are a couple of entertaining surprises:
1. The toilet tank lids are glued shut. It took nearly a year to figure this one out... some of the tank innards are needing to be replace. The water is running on one -- but the lid is glued shut. Luckily it looks like the previous owner used silicone, so it should be easy enough to cut it loos and pry off the lid!
2. A vase of flowers is bolted to the art niche... and in over a year, she hadn't even cared to move it anyway. But if she wanted that moved, it would require tools. It really looks like the wooden vase of flowers could be simply lifted and moved.
These are pretty harmless things to discover, and just make you wonder, "What were the previous owners thinking?"
What are some fun things you've discovered in your home(s)?
