Most Favourite Washroom

This room, along with many of my friends, is my absolute favourite room in the farm house. I searched for months for the perfect shower curtain, wall decor, and door knobs. The new shower itself took just over a week to complete, but it took me a lot longer than that to finish up all of the details…painting the walls,…
