- New vanity: The bathroom vanity was original to the… Continue Reading
Shower Curtains are all-important when it comes to bathrooms. I have to admit, I've been through 7 shower curtains in 5 years (and I have another one still in its packaging, waiting for its debut), and my husband thinks I'm crazy.
