This Guy’s Roommate Left Him With A Complete Mess. What He Did In Return Is Totally Awesome.

Since the roommate would no longer be there, the friends he abandoned went ahead and destroyed his stuff and set it on the curb.

Having a roommate can be tricky business. You’re basically living in close quarters with a friend (or even a stranger) and mutually promising not to be a terrible person. Sometimes, rooming situations can be wonderful. At other times? Not so great.
One guy’s roommate decided to flee this apartment and his rental agreement without giving warning. He stiffed his old roommates on his portion of the rent, but that’s not all.

He also left this mess behind, along with an atrocious paint job.

They decided to do something about it. They painted the walls with 2 cans of primer.

The old roommates decided to paint a mural on the wall. First, they printed out the design on a transparent sheet.

Then, after buying a projector online for $30, they had an outline ready on the wall.

“I’ve got birds on me!”

After painting it, it popped. The mural is the first thing you see when you walk into the apartment.

” I’m really big on internet culture and I liken the anonymity and community of the internet to a flock of birds. A body of motion moving in a general direction but at any moment they can change direction, many can peel away, it can split in half, it’s unpredictable.”

The cost of the disposal, priming and painting? $200.

Although losing a roommate (and losing money because of it) can be bad news, painting this mural and re-vamping the apartment was worth the heartache. You might not be able to believe it, but this is the first attempt at a mural this Reddit user ever made.
What a wonderful idea this is! Using a projector, a transparent sheet and an image is a great way to sketch out a mural on the wall. Share this awesome process by clicking below.
