So, my future home has pink toilets.
There, I said it.
When friends and family ask me about my new house, this is usually the line I open with because really, it just speaks volumes.
First of all, it tells you a general age span of my home. Let's face it...no one chose pink toilets on purpose after 1980. Pink was so out-of-date, and really everyone knew that mauve would be the color that would never go out of style! ;)
Second, my "pink toilets" opener also tells you that my home has a few projects in store for the future.
Finally, I like to think that my "pink toilets" segue says a little something about me and my husband that a cookie cutter builder grade house in the newest subdivision would not say. It says "Hey, look at me! I'm kicky, quirky and sassy! I'm an original!"
And speaking of originals, here it is:
Here's the part where I make my confession.
My husband thinks we bought this house under the "assumption" that we'd be ripping out those pink toilets in the not-so-distant future.
Well, you know what they say about "assumptions".
I confess...I like the pink bathroom! Dare I say it, I may even come to love it!
When I'm done putting my shabby chic retro inspired spin on this room, it is going to look like I chose those pink sinks and that pink toilet on purpose!
I found an entire website dedicated to saving the endangered pink toilets of America.
My sons, however, are not too keen on the fact that this retro pink bathroom will be the place where they will greet each new morning.
"Too girly!" my son, Sam, declared.
Girly? I think not! Look what I found today:
Here it is! Proof that a boy and his beloved dog can enjoy a "timeless" pink bathroom for many years to come!
Score one for the pink bathrooms of America!
