Midcentury Keith’s amazing 1958 pink bathroom

I met Midcentury Keith when he pledged to help Save the Pink Bathrooms and posted photos of his own incredible pink jewel box bathroom on the STPB Flickr page. Oh my, it is a beauty!

Here’s Keith’s story… and hey, everybody, remember to make your pledge (a comment) to Save The Pink Bathrooms.

Hi Pam,

Thanks for the compliment! When I first bought the house a friend threatened me with my life if I didn’t keep the pink bathroom intact … so really, I had no choice but to keep it 🙂 Actually, I love my 1958 ranch house – very homey. Not much was done to it over the last 50 years – thank goodness. I’m just trying to bring back its shine.

I’m in Steger, Illinois … I’ll fill in my profile today sometime. You inspired me to open a flickr account to post pics of my restoration progress (although I lost some of the earliest pics in a PC crash) – I enjoy seeing what others have done, so I figured I should ad my house to the mix as well. I hope to finish the main house by this fall – refinishing the floors is next on my list (and the last major project to be done!)

I check in on your site every morning with my cup of coffee – thanks for giving me something to get my day started in a positive way!

Thanks, Keith, I can’t wait to see the rest of the house.

    Hello all,
    I have recently purchased a two family flat built in 1958 and am restoring the bathrooms and kitchens( complete with 1958 pink tile) and metal cabinets) the tiles had been painted over by the previous owner which I have stripped down to tbe glorious. Several of the pieces are missing or dammaged and I am having a hell of a time finding suitable replacements. I am in need of 7 pieces of 1958 pink 6″ x2″ bullnose… Thanks,
    Jeff
