So, I'm not exactly sure in what era "mint green" in your house was cool, but it's so not cool now, in this era! I mentioned in my last post that I spend a good portion of Memorial Day repainting the stucco walls outside because they were a horrible mint green (btw, I didn't post pictures of the newly painted walls, because they are horribly boring...just plain off white...but SO much better than mint green!). Well, if you thought mint green stucco was bad, take a look at this beauty!

Oh yes...that, my friends, is my mint green sink! Yup, in the bathroom that the hubs and I use! I think what makes it even worse is the dark green and maroon tiles around the sink. I mean, who thought that color combination would look good together? And please note the silver "soap holder cut out thingy" behind the sink is placed totally off center...I mean, come on...they couldn't even center it? (It's the little things that drive me crazy! lol).
The other bathroom in the house also has hideous tile all over the counter, and a painted enamel sink. That bathroom is done in a lovely shade of pink, which might be even more horrendous than our bathroom except that it happens to be Ellie's bathroom...and that is my saving grace. I can totally make a pink tiled bathroom decently cute for a little girl!
We are actually renting this house (saving up for the house of our dreams...we don't want to settle...lol!), so we won't be doing anything with these "gorgeous" bathrooms other than trying to decorate the best we can. We obviously don't want to do any home improvements to a rental...although, we will be there at least 2 years, so that's a pretty long time to put up with this crazy color scheme!
Any decorating ideas on how to make dark green, maroon and mint green look "hip and cool"? Suggestions are greatly appreciated!!
