Contest time!

That's right! The Quirk Factor is holding its very first contest. My "ugly wall" has motivated me to seek solace in other people's home atrocities!

All you have to do is submit (or link to) a picture of your very own home nightmare, with a description of what it is. Submissions will be open for one week, so have your entries in by Tuesday the 29th.

Once all submissions are in, Jaysen (who gave the "ugly wall" its moniker) will help me decide which entry is the most atrocious, and we will choose a winner.

The winner will get... a surprise care package! Whoot Whoot! What will be in the care package, I haven't decided yet- but if it's coming from me, you know it will be chock full o' good stuff. And by good stuff, I mean a few interesting items, as well as a fair amount of snark. Then again, depending on who the winner is, you may get a whole package of snark.

So be proud and show off your atrocities! Distasteful flooring under your new carpet? Rip it up and let's have a look! Okay, don't go that far- the care package will have minimal monetary value.

Your motivation:

(for those of you just joining, this is what I found under my ugly wallpaper when I tore it down. Yes, it is a semi-permanent part of the actual wall.)

Jodi: if you would like to play, resubmit your lovely find so I can have all the entries in one section.

Good luck, and may the ugliest/most interesting/surprising home decor win!

Darn. I have nothing in my house that can even remotely compare to that wallpaper, and that's not because I'm a fabulous housekeeper. ;)

Ooo er. I like a challenge. How do we submit? I can't do that clever code stuff - email do?

E-mail is great. :)

I will email some pics of our kitchen. Can you picture orange countertops, bronze colored flooring? ick.

Great idea! I can't wait to see the pictures.

I could post a pic of the floor of my kid's room, but that's really self-created ugly...
