There is a movement taking shape these days. A movement protesting the wrongdoings of our current culture. A movement asking us to consider if we have strayed too far from our past. It’s not Occupy Wall Street. No, I’m talking about Save the Pink Bathrooms. Their pledge is simple: to preserve vintage pink bathrooms everywhere.
I’m all for preserving the past and what have you, but do you know what comes with vintage bathrooms? I’ll tell you. Vintage germs. Carpet so full of old cooties that it crunches when you walk on it. I do believe I’ll pass, thank you. And besides, these bathrooms were lacking in vintage charm anyway, they just looked tired. And pink.
Catherine updated her bath with all new fixtures and a paint color she likes to call Superman Blue! She reports that it the room now feels “so clean and fun!” See? Cleanliness is #1 in the bathroom, fun is #2. Uh, you know what I mean.
And Autumn from Apollo’s Idea could have simply replaced that painful pink paint color and called it good enough, but she went all out with a new counter top, shower, toilet, tile-work, mirror, and light fixture. Love the stripes too. I’ll bet in a few decades our grandchildren will start a movement called “Save the Striped Bathrooms!” Mark my words.
