Ugh! I did not mean to let so much time pass between posts. Things got real busy real fast. I got called for jury duty right about the same time that I realized I needed to plan whatever we were going to do for the summer, and also at the same time that I needed to get a bathroom remodel going because, oh my god, our bathroom is falling apart.
I mean, it's functional. It works, you can use the toilet and take a shower and all that. Just try not to pay attention to the dripping faucets (3), broken drawer (1+), the mineral buildup that even acid won't eat through anymore, and the mysterious stains that look unmysteriously like (ahem) mold. The last time it was updated was somewhere around '89/'90 so… You know when people say things like "My bathroom/kitchen/bedroom is perfect! I love it! I'm going to keep it this way for the rest of my life!!" Well, I can tell you from personal experience, 30 years later a lot of stuff is going to be broken.
But I gotta give it to the previous owners… lasting 30 years shows they bought quality stuff! However, I am over 80s mauve and colonial blue. SO. OVER.
For those of you who don't know what mauve is… behold! This is almost the exact shade of our bathroom tile. Everywhere you look.
As part of the compendium of hideous mauve items you can also enjoy a mauve skinny tie or skinny jeans.
The jeans are a slightly more palatable shade. However, I don't think those hips are real. Or maybe her waist. Something was definitely photoshopped there.
Here's a beautiful cake in mauve! But let's face it, out in the end, it's not gonna be pretty.
In fact, when you type "horrible things in mauve" in google, Barney the dinosaur pops up! Although technically, Barney is horrible purple. Mauve as well were quite a number of bridesmaids dresses that are just trying too damn hard. There is also a book, "Mauve: How One Man Invented a Color That Changed the World"!
Um… my bathroom thanks you?
