Pink Is Evil. (according to my husband)

My husband lived a pink night mare in the master bathroom for 20 years and didn't know what to do with it. Pink tub, pink stool, pink sink, pink tile on the floor and halfway up the walls. All he managed to come up with is to cover the floor with a charcoal gray carpet.
........until I arrived and changed this pink girly dream of a bathroom into something a MAN likes to live with.
