- Aussies have revealed the very creepy notes and items they have found at home
- The items have been found during renovations, according to the comments
- Some even asked why their hard work was being ripped down by the owners
Home renovators have shared the very creepy notes and items they have found while improving their properties.
From notes shaming the new renovators for destroying hard work to family photos asking what was wrong with the previous updates.
The thread started on Facebook where an Australian woman posted a photo and note that had been found in a bathroom in California in 2018 – asking if anyone had come across anything similar.

Hundreds of people got on board after seeing the funny post.
‘Under the carpet we pulled up. There was a list of names the year, I think it’s 1992 and she wrote “we cleaned the floors before we put the carpet down”,’ one woman wrote.
Another shared a picture of a note painted on the wall, telling the renovator they should be ashamed of tearing down someone’s hard work.
While one woman found the names of the whole family who had re-modelled her kitchen, and the year it was done, scrawled on the back of her dishwasher.
Some notes appeared to be left by accident, including a very personal *one written by a teenager in 1988 after finding out she was pregnant.

Others have revealed they have been the people to leave creative notes for the next people who decide to remodel their home.
‘I painted our names on the floorboards before laying carpet in the bedroom. Still makes me happy,’ one woman said.
‘I love leaving messages for the future generations,’ said another.
One couple stained the concrete under their kitchen tiles red and put crime scene-style tape to mark out a body for the people who renovate next.
Some have even left treasure.
‘My mother once left some gold nuggets in a house they sold. She had hidden it under a corner or carpet and forgot to get it out and felt like she couldn’t turn up and ask for it back,’ one woman said.
Another woman said her mother found precious stones when she moved into a home.

But other finds were horrific.
‘The first house I ever bought was really cheap because the previous owners had heaps of cats and it stunk like cat urine. When I was doing the garden I dug up a box, it was a really nice box, I thought maybe I’d found someone’s hidden treasures. Nope, it was cats,’ one woman revealed.
The post accrued hundreds of comments and thousands of likes in less than 24 hours.
The text on the side read: ‘Hi, we are the Shineski’s!’ the note began, alongside a picture of a happy couple.
‘We re-modeled this bathroom summer 1995. If you’re reading this it means you are remodeling the bathroom again. What was wrong with it?’ the note said.
When it was unearthed in 2018 it prompted a man-hunt for the couple who had renovated the home 23 years prior.
