We have a little hidden "treasure" in our house. Pittsburgh has a thing called the Pittsburgh Toilet. All the old houses here have a toilet in the basement. Nice. Good for emergencies I guess. Sometimes they are just sitting in the middle of the room. Sometimes they have a stall around them. Ours came with a full bathroom. A shower even. I like to call this, affectionately, our prison shower.
Or, if I am feeling nice and happy that day I will call it our camp shower.
Well being that our main bathroom is a power tool storage unit right now, the prison shower is our only option.
LUCKILY . . . . .
We Shaffers have very high standards in prison decor.
AND OUR SHOWER NOW LOOKS LIKE THIS.
PRETTY GOOD FOR A BASEMENT BATHROOM I WOULD SAY.
AND PRETTY GOOD FOR TWO DAYS AND A BUNCH OF PAINT.
We added a new toilet, a new faucet on the old sink, and just spray painted the shower pipes black, adding a new black nozzle.
I borrowed some things from upstairs to make our stay in the basement bathroom nicer while we wait for our bathroom remodel.
The skull, some crazy man in Tennessee found it in a field outside of Leiper's Fork and sold it to me for 20 bucks. I sprayed it with chalkboard paint. Kind of creepy. . .but it makes a great towel rack.
Willie is ripped out of an old magazine. I have carried that picture around for years.
I "splurged" at Target on a new candle that smells like basil and a wooden mat for the shower to cover the ugly drain. It's not supposed to sit in water, but I figure, it only has to last a couple weeks for us really.
Here, take a look at them side by side.
SOAP YA LIKE IT!
