First off, thanks for all your helpful comments! John agreed to let me put a shelf in our bathroom instead of the creepy eye painting. However…it was a bit of a struggle.
Monday I asked him to help me hang the shelf. Yes, I could have done it alone but it was our family day and we were doing everything together. So he comes to the bathroom and says “We should hang the [creepy eye] painting too. Wait, did you want it under the shelf? I guess there is room for both of them.”
Then I had to explain that since the eye painting had not been hung in 2 years, I’ve decided to replace it WITH the shelf. Since the shelf has function. John agreed but then starting thinking of other places in the house to hang the eye. I knew he would. I tried to convince him to put it in the (not yet built and no plans to build it soon) basement bathroom but he wouldn’t have it. So we agreed on the guest bathroom. Since I never really go in it, I don’t have to see the eye. Sorry future guests!
I could have fought to have the painting not hung anywhere, but John really loves this painting you guys. And I felt bad trying to take it away from him.
So our bathroom now looks like this:
