Decorating & Furniture/Tub Color/Painting Bathroom
I live in a 1976 double-wide Casco home with a "harvest gold" tub and toilet-very 50ish, bad color - one with a hint of green in it.
I want to repaint my bathroom but am stymied by this awful tub/toilet color.
The bathroom is small and has an alcove area where the sink mirror is; this is a smaller, darker area away from the tub. The tub area has a window along it which provides good sunlight.
I have NO money so getting a new tub/toilet is out of the question.
You are just going to have to embrace that harvest gold and green toilet. For the tub, you may be able to get a shower curtian that covers it! This may be your best bet. The you just have to worry about the toilet. Try picking a color that looks well the the green and make the bathroom into a 50's style, so it looks like you ment to have a green toilet. You may want to try a light cream, then use black and stainless steel hardware and accessories to give it a true 50's look. Also bring in a color to complement the green in your window treatments. Try using black and white pictures in black frames and bring in a rug with the same green as in the toilet. It could be cool!
