Like many homes built in the early 90's, we have a tiny, dark windowless hole in our house known as a hall bathroom.
Here's how it looked when we bought it, ugly shower curtain and all:
Yeaaah. That had to change. But...to what?
I remember it clearly: I was driving home one evening, and thinking about the new house. It suddenly struck me that our tiny dark hall bath could be transformed into a natural history museum in miniature. The details all fell into place quickly. Even more exciting, we kept finding things the old lady had left behind that could be used as exhibits.
So, without any further ado, let me take you on a tour of The Bathroom of Natural History.
Every museum needs a sign. We have one, too:
Come on in!
On the vanity, we have a live exhibit. Fancy goldfish! Sciency.
Scroll your eyes upward, and behold one of the many things left behind: a real deer antler.
Dead! Real! Bugs!
A display shelf with various fancy polished rocks, and the world's largest (?) dandelion.
Open the medicine cabinet for more exhibits...
There's still so much I want to do with this room. But first, I am going to need a lot more exhibits. And labels. Lots and lots of labels.
