This unique set-up allows for a television to be placed in front of the niches.

Taking photos in bathrooms can be challenging.  It’s hard to hide yourself from reflecting in a mirror.  The solution:  open the medicine cabinet door and hide behind it!  Brilliant!!

When will people stop knotting their curtains?

Can we set up counseling for people compelled to knot their drapes?

Enact legislation to outlaw knotted curtains?

Boycott homes with knotted curtains?
