Interior decorator Liz Toombs shares her college dorm decorating tips
Good Day Atlanta
A woman, temporarily staying at her stepbrother's place for free, tried to redecorate her bedroom without asking. The man was left fuming and has since turned to Reddit for advice.
The man explained how he inherited the house from his grandparents and that his stepsister, Kana, had been living at his for "two months rent free". She was living with him while her parents had their house renovated, plus it was closer to her job.
He said things were going smoothly until Kana returned home one day with cans of paint.
"I asked her what she was doing with those, and she told me that she was going to paint her room pink," he told the forum.
The man firmly said no, because she was staying temporarily and he liked the room the way it was, to which his stepsister hit back and said she was the one staying in the room and "should have a right to be able to decorate the room how she wants it."
He reiterated that she was not allowed to paint the room and that if she went against his wishes, she would be kicked out.
Kana didn't react well to the news, calling him a "d*ck" – even his dad and step mum said he was "too harsh" and could have compromised.
