Impulsively tearing things off the walls

Zack Motl tore all the mirrored tile out of this bathroom in one night.

Have you ever impulsively gone off on something you hated?

Mr. Bromeliad and I tore off the pink floral wallpaper border in our apartment living room one Saturday afternoon without asking first.


See Zack's tiny place in The New York Times.


  1. I ripped the ugly fish wallpaper down in my bedroom as a teen. Thinking about it now, I realize that my mom should have been much more upset at me.

  2. Absolutely! Sometimes I just can't stand something anymore -- and often once I start on a project I can't stop until it's completed (which often means I end up doing a rush job and/or pick smaller projects that I can complete in one sitting).
