After a year long of planning, I finally have a working darkroom at home. I still have to set up curtains to fully light seal the room. I've become mildly paranoid of light since then. There is a small entry way leading to the bathroom in which I've carved out a place to work. It's an ideal spot with direct access to running water. I'm able to set up my chemistry using the simple utility table pictured here which fits my enlarger well. It's cozy enough and comfortable inside to spend hours making prints.
