20 times people found strange and interesting things in their homes and just had to share.

Many of us love having interior designs in our homes, and we love it even more when we see our guests surprised by the decor.

But some people are more practical and never think about these treasures until they move into new homes and find relics that previous owners left.

People over at Reddit are sharing photos of unusual things they’ve found in their houses, and here are the most bizarre.

“In case you’re wondering, behind that door is a small room (about 4’x3′) that’s about 2′ lower than what you see here. And the ceiling is barely above the top of that door, so you have to crouch whenever you’re in there.”

“It’s unheated, so it’s always pretty cool. We keep some wine bottles in there and store a few boxes of stuff, but getting in there is a bit of a bitch, too, so we don’t often go there.

According to one Redditor:

“For those who don’t know, this is a ‘magic’ pyramid. I knew a girl in school back in the ’80s, and her parents believed in magic.”

“They were ‘right-hand path magicians’ and hid stuff like this everywhere as part of ‘protection spells’ or ‘prosperity rituals.'”

“While I don’t personally believe in this stuff, I do think that if a person does really believe 100% that something works, it can, in a way, work. Mind over matter.”

#19 ‘What is This Appliance Built into This Kitchen Island?’

Commenting on the photo, one Redditor said:

“This is a PRO CookSink.”

“I had one of these in my kitchen, and I loved it! It was near my regular sink, so I could pull the faucet head over to fill the ‘pot,’ then I would turn it on to boil the water.”

“It has a pot that goes inside it that has holes in it — like a strainer. You put the strainer inside the ‘sink’ and then toss the items that you want to boil inside the strainer and cover it.”

“Once your food is cooked, you lift out the strainer, flip the switch and all the boiling water drains out.”

“The biggest advantage was not having to carry a large pot of boiling water over from your regular stovetop to the sink to drain out the water.”

“I used it for boiling pasta, potatoes, corn on the cob, and I loved it.”
