Subpage of Fotolab
Just wanting to document the steps being taken to turn what used to be a very chaotic & messy room used for film & photo development (among other things) into a really awesome photo lab/darkroom. :)
I'm mostly doing this to make it easier for myself to keep track of things (seeing as I volunteered for "getting stuff done"), but feel free to add to the list if there's something YOU (or someone else) contributed. Chemielab-related additions are welcome too, seeing as I won't be recording those.
Note: all progress is listed in date descending order.
