The only thing I could think of was how my house first looked when we moved in 9 years ago. Some of the decor left a great deal to be desired. At the time we must have been able to see through the hideousness, to the beauty within.
So here is the UGLY Bathroom..
...more UGLY in progress.
The UGLY got worse before it got better.
Just how much though?? Eeek..
That's better...it's the same shot, after removal of the UGLY.
