Bye-Bye Avocado Green

After 38 years of living with an avocado sink and toilet in our powder room, we decided to do a bit of remodeling. Mostly because the sink was starting to rust, and it was pretty disgusting looking. Here is a picture of the before:

And here is a picture of all the equipment it took to transform the room:


Yes, that is the powder room door against the hallway wall. It’s a tight fit in that powder room, and this enabled Frank – a terrific plumber – who did a great job, and was oh so neat – to work in the room.

And here is a picture of what our powder room looks like now:

Bathroom after

Yes, that’s a quartz top, and polished chrome faucets, and a white toilet. The sink is an inset white china sink, so rust will be a thing of the past. Bye-bye avocado green, and hello to classic white. It’s going to take me a little while to get used to classic white, but I think I can manage just fine.

You like? I sure do.

Now to paint the medicine cabinet. It has a gold rim on it, and I’m going to attempt to paint it silver. If it works, I won’t have to buy a new medicine cabinet. I’m all for saving money where I can. That leaves more for art supplies.
