As most of you know we are slowly but surely updating our house. We are not even close to starting on the downstairs portion, but I decided to tackle the downstairs bathroom that will eventually be my darkroom. It’s a tiny room, but perfect for a starter darkroom. And let’s face it…any darkroom is better than no darkroom at all. So my goals were to draw out an eventual layout for the darkroom, clean out things we didn’t need, organize the camera gear, and possibly start some demolition.
I was all ready to start demolition, but Speed Racer came down to see my handiwork, and didn’t think it was such a good idea to get carried away with it right at that moment. He took my sledgehammer away. But he’s very right. It’s so easy when you are remodeling a house to look at everything and want to work on it right that minute. If you do that though, you have a huge mess on your hands. So we’re trying to FOCUS (focus? what? where?) and finish Speed Racer’s office that we are currently working on. Then hopefully we can at least gut the darkroom, so I can start purchasing items a little at a time.
And HGTV, if you’re listening…Please Pimp My Darkroom.
