People don't know where that €180,000 went on last night's Room To Improve, and they're worried

And then there was the mural.

BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND or not, very little changes about Sunday evening in this country.

In other words, a great number of us spent it eyeballing Dermot Bannon’s architectural choices on Room To Improve, and insisted we could have done it better while our own houses fell down around us.

Last night we met Michael and Cliona, who were keen to give their 1950s Killester home an edgy feel, with the help of an outside mural and jungle-themed living area.

Suffice to say, Dermot spent the vast majority of the project secretly wringing his hands.

While the renovation itself experienced very few hiccups – aside from a €20,000 surprise in the form of unexpected extras, but we’ll say no more about it – Dermot struggled to get on board with Michael and Cliona’s creative streak.

But all credit to him, he did his best.

And the couple were only delighted with their new and improved home.

Twitter, on the other hand, was having a serious issue with the end result, or should we say, the cost of the end result.

Oh, and we’re not sure what Doireann Garrihy has been doing with her Sunday nights up until now, but she’s only just joined the rest of us armchair architects.

And Dermot is nervous.
