Help Find A Home For Brenda’s Mid-Century Blue Bath!

I recently received this email from Brenda, who is looking to re-home her 1961 blue bath fixtures! Brenda writes:

I am getting ready to sell the house (it was my parents) and the tub walls and flooring had some issues so we are doing a full remodel in the interest of resale.  I felt especially bad the tub couldn’t be salvaged because it was in pristine condition.

The toilet and sink (a drop-in 17.5″ x 19.5″) are American Standard, 1961.  I also have the towel bars and soap holders that can be seen in the first picture.  The wall tile is also available but that will soon be headed for rubbish removal.
Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the pictures, Brenda.  That is a very interesting floor! Love all the blue shades.

If anyone is interested in Brenda’s Blue Bath, email her at bdean@cox.net.  Thanks!

    Oooohhh, Brenda that is tooo bad you have to remodel the bathroom – it looks really great from the pics. I am so happy you are not just throwing out the toilet and sink, thanks for trying to find them a good home!

    Wow, that’s the same color that we looked for for so long – and finally found. If she can’t find someone to take them, she should definitely check and see if her town has a Habitat for Humanity resale store or a salvage yard. That way, someone who is searching can find them. Oh! And put them on Craigslist!

    (I love that bathroom tile.)

    If it’s an option – why not put the money you would spend on a remodel in an escrow account for the new owner. That way the buyer who loves the blue bath gets some cash, and the buyer who hates the blue bath gets some cash to remodel it whichever way they like.

    As always your real estate agent should guide you in all your decisions.
