Is there something that your husband has brought home or has owned that you are not too fond of? Maybe it is something that really grates on your nerves of perhaps it is easily looked over but it isn’t something you would have thought of as decoration…..
When my husband and I got married over six years ago he had two “decoration” pieces that I hated! I mean loathed from the very depth of my being. The first was a cityscape that was made out of metal and it hung on the wall. It was heavy and ugly. It reminded me of one of those tacky pieces that Joey, from Friends, decorated his apartment with. My husband of course loved it and thought it was very “metro-sexual.”….Yes, you read that right. The other items (plural) that I couldn’t handle were the swords/daggers. I don’t know when men, in today’s society, thought that swords from the local Renaissance fair would make handsome art pieces but it needs to stop. ESPECIALLY when there is NOTHING else in the home that even resembles a Renaissance theme. (Just a little tip from me to you…They aren’t even historically accurate! AAAAHHHH! Come on!)
UGH, I really hated these things. I still do. Maybe it is my background in Art History or simple good taste but those two bits of decor quickly were taken down and stored under the bed, never to be heard of again.
I bring this up because my husband frequently brings displays home for my kids and the play room. I typically don’t have a problem with it because the boys love it and it is never a permanent addition. Well, we are now the proud owners of four Iron Man cutouts…FOUR. I don’t think all four are intended for the five and three year old….One is currently in my kitchen for some reason….
In good sport, I did not band the cutouts. In fact, I hung two of them up in the boys room. That’s right, I’m an awesome mom.
They love them and my husband thinks it looks pretty cool. I, however, will nod and smile, give them all kisses, and silently count the days until they go and live in the trash….
