I'm sure you'll be so pleased with the result. Your materials look great. I was so happy when I got rid of my 70s harvest gold baths.

I have the 1962 version of your yellow bathroom. Same exact tiles, but yellow and grey fried egg shapes on formica countertop. I will watch your new bath with great interest as ours is going, too. Soon. Very soon. Keep us posted. Your selections are lovely.
You'll be very happy.

Third day- walls up, floor ready, tub in place---funny- the wallboard is an exact match to our painted cabinets!

Did anyone ever think Harvest Gold looked good? What did they put in the water in the '70s that made people want avocado or harvest gold kitchens and bathrooms? I mean '50s pastels and '60s aquamarine or coppertone also look dated and of their era, but at least they still look attractive even today.

I absolutely agree with you lee676. What were they drinking/smoking?! I had two bathrooms with harvest gold, one was harvest gold and a dark brown the color of... well, you get the picture. Why would anyone want a bathroom in those colors? I'm really looking forward to seeing your finished bath patty__em. It's coming together very nicely so far.
