We have an enormous room above our garage that is now a recording studio but began its life as a rec room. It was built in 1978, and back when it still bore all of the hideous decorating sensibilities of that era, my husband and I used to make a point of buying the ugliest '70s decor items we could find.
Even though I still have a gigantic, dusty, mite-infested macrame wall-hanging shaped like a tree, this is truly the cheesiest objet d'art we possess:
If you don't recognize it, perhaps this will jog your memory:
My wooden version is so crudely rendered that I originally assumed it was some high school kid's shop project. However, there's a price tag on the bottom that suggests it was made as a tourist souvenir. That makes it even funnier, I think.
Here's your challenge: photograph and post your ugliest home decor item. It doesn't have to be something you actually display in your house - that horrible lump of glazed ceramic from your grandma counts, too. Be sure to comment to let me know when your post is up. I'll start a list within this post so everyone can visit you to point and laugh.
