If you install a new bathroom sink and vanity and a bathtub, can you officially describe the bathroom as remodeled? Even if it’s not finished? Please note the brilliant location of the bathtub faucet: on the opposite side of the tub. You will have to lean over the tub to turn on the faucet. Or you’ll have to step into the tub each time.

Macramé was a popular craft activity in the 1970s. Many different knots to learn. Colored beads to add. I helped my mom make macramé hangings when I was a kid.
Latch hook rugs were another popular pastime in the 1970s. I helped my mom make this same Kachina doll rug in the 1970s.
