Updating avocado green bathroom
After a little digging, we found some pale green wall paint --left over from another project, which matched one of the greens in the World Market print and related to the green in the striped curtain.
Look through our photo ideas below to find the best for you.Honestly, the most important thing we did with this bathroom, was clean it to within an inch of its life.While it doesn't look too dirty in the original photo, trust me -- it was pretty grimy.Who would think that avocado and aqua could co-exist peacefully? This is the this bathroom has ever looked, just by working with the colors that are here.I wouldn’t have thought it possible if it hadn’t happened so easily, with the help of some inspiration linens. If you find yourself a fabric or in this cases towels and washcloths that tie it all together, that’s the way to do it every single time. We weren’t about to gut this space and start over, so I had to work some magic with what I had.The original vanity was replaced with oak, and the shower surround tile was replaced with two by two mosaic tile in off-white, with a blue-green racing stripe.
The racing stripe did not match the tub and toilet, nor did it match the sink.
My husband and I are closing on a condo with plenty of potential but right now it's hard on the eyes (70s wallpaper in every room, avocado green bathroom, etc.).
We'll have about 6 weeks to renovate before we move. I wanted to go with aqua but those two colors won't work well together.
I love a beautiful vintage bath as much as the next person, but sometimes vintage bathrooms are ugly. And speaking of luck, not everyone is lucky enough to be able to rip out their old ugly stuff, like Mississippi Mojo did.
How many times have you moved into a rental or bought a new home, only to be stuck with an avocado bathtub. If your home is a rental, or your finances or life situation won't allow you to remodel for a while, you may just be stuck with the bathroom you inherit.
We would like to completely remodel the bathroom, but since it is the only bathroom we have in our city condo, that probably won't happen soon.
