A CRAP flat now looks delightful due to some clever string light placement, it has been confirmed.
First-time renter, 22-year-old Tom Logan, put up the set of colourful mini lanterns in anticipation of his parents’ imminent visit.
He said: “I strategically hung the lights so that they obscured the damp on the wall and covered up what I hope is a ketchup stain on the brickwork.
“Turns out the hole those ants keep crawling out of was actually the perfect place to hook the end of the lights onto. It’s a ‘life hack’.”
He added: “It also gives me a great excuse to dim the big light, so my folks can’t tell I’m using cardboard boxes as a bookcase.
“Essentially, I want the lights to say: ‘I’m not a total screw up, but it’d also be great if you chucked me fifty quid.’”
