This is Marissa's old bathroom. It's certainly not the worst 'before' we've seen here on Apartment Therapy — but beneath its bland, dingy-80s exterior lurked a nasty surprise. The previous owner of Marissa's co-op spent a lot of time away from home, and didn't realize that leaks were causing extensive water damage. On top of that, the random dropped ceilings were making this tiny space even more claustrophobic. It was time for a change.
