    are you able to take a small piece of the paint off and take it to Lowe’s? I know they do color matches but I’m not sure about metallic paint but it wouldn’t hurt to ask. They need a sample to match though

    I looked and Home Depot also has a color match. They indicate in this link that they have matched pillows and blankets too.

    Looks just like my half-bath. It will stay that way until I feel like repainting. My advice, don't look at it.

    Patch the paint behind the toilet, or repaint the wall. On the floor, clean up any excess from the wax rings. If the floor tile if a different shape than previously needed, and has left gaps, fill in the space with wood putty, Bondo, or instant concrete, then paint the filling to match or blend with the tile. I can’t quite tell what’s there, but you might want to add these accessories: a cutoff valve for the toilet; a container for flushable wipes for adults and children; pretty trays for your beauty items; a living-room quality painting or a photo collage frame. Best wishes, and don’t forget to post your potty perk-up! ☺️

       Thankfully the toilet base shape matched perfectly ~ no repairs needed there!! Artwork & tray already in place.... someone suggested framing it in & painting a contrast color. Wallpaper? Bead board? Mosaic? Got my creative hat ignited again!! Thanx

    I would think you could have someone mat h the paint, but if not, you can put up beadboard wainscoting. They even make paintable wallpaper that looks like beadboard.

    You could mask of a piece equal on both sides of the toilet to the ceiling and paint it a slight contrasting color. Add a piece of artwork on the wall above the toilet and it will look like you intended to accent the art. You could also run thin strip of wood trim to the wall up both sides to the ceiling (there are a lot of choices in places like Home Depot for a few dollars for an 8' strip) paint inside the trimmed area a little bit different color to match some artwork and it will look like you planned it all along.

      I like that idea to “frame” the area & paint a contrasting color. Or maybe mosaic a frame like I did the vanity & mirror!?!? As you can see, 15’ high ceilings so I think i’ll Just focus on the bottom section. Thanx~ the framing idea got me thinking🤔😉
