Transfrom a 50's Pink Bath for 60 Bucks!

By
Real Estate Agent with Dove Realty Inc.

                             

How many time have you been stopped in your tracks by the pink elephant! Especially when your clients don't have the money or the will to replace the offending fixtures.

Well here's a fast and inexpensive fix to taming the beast. I had my clients paint the cabinetry and the walls with Cappacino by Restroration Hardware and then I whipped up a shower curtain and matching window treatment from 2 panels I picked up on sale at JC Penneys. The plaid contained a small amount of pink with brown and gold. It all worked to actually tone dowm the pink sink and tub.

If you're having problems taming your 50's bath give me a call at 206-781-1724, because:

The Better it Looks... the Better it Sells!

You did a great job diverting the eye away from the pink sink and placing the focus on the plaid fabric.  Smart move!

Very Burberry!  Makes the pink intentional, and gender-neutral with the use of plaid!

A definite drab to fab look! The bathroom looks thought out with your changes; not just pieced together

Great!  I kind of like the pink fixtures, but not everyone feels the same.  Thanks for sharing your transformation.
