This is what the bathroom in my basement looked like for well over a year.
And now, after several months more. . .
It looks like this!
(The shower is behind the fully tiled wall)
The funny thing about this bathroom?
After all the time and energy I spent on the upstairs bathroom. . . Which, although it doesn't look it, is very white and bright. (Chandra tells me it has something to do with how a camera reads the gray scale?)
