No I am not talking about faith the size of a mustard seed, although I have to admit that that’s about how much faith I had in making much of this little gem of a potty room. (Okay that’s dramatic…) But mustard is what I inevitably think of upon looking at these before pictures.
Oh the yellowness of it all. I gotta be honest, yellow just ain’t my thang. I like it for other people, I’m not a hater…I just don’t prefer it for myself. Too bad my kitchen is still chillin’ in all her yellowness…
I mean seriously… WHAT were the previous owners thinking. Yellow toilet, yellow bath tub, yellow sink, yellow tile, AND Yellow walls? I mean it’s like I somehow found myself WITHIN Big Bird.
Hubby taking out the yellow potty. Goodbye yellow floating sink that identically match our pink floating sink…
And heeelllooo white!
[Enter white porcelain and insert sigh of relief]
After replacing the sink and toilet with white ones I am itching to get rid of the yellow walls.
I think I am going to try to work with the yellow tile around the boarder for the time being, since that yellow cast iron tub ain’t goin’ anywhere anytime soon. Maybe a gray blue for the walls?
But before painting I need to remove what looks like layers of wall paper and repair somethin’ crazy going on with the walls over the shower…scary.
