At least they aren’t port-o-potties! 

But seriously, as long as they aren’t gross I wouldn’t worry about it.  And I would probably not put any decor in there so you don’t draw any additional attention to them.

To make you feel better, I once went to a wedding where the reception room was themed like a medieval castle, complete with moat, and the bathrooms were like dungeons. Literally. Totally weird. Somehow this is a very popular venue here in Toronto. Not my cup of tea. I’d take the pea green paint over that any day! LOL!

Could you rent some delux portapotties to have on site? They have some REALLY nice ones these days!

If the potty is that bad theres really not much you can do. Like rachel said, at least its not a port-a-potty!! I don’t think anyone will mind too much anyway!

What about displaying a collection of family photos? or photos of you and your fiance?

They can be mounted with 3M Command hooks that come off the wall easily and leave no markings.

This would give your guests something else to look at.

The basket could likewise be hung from a hook.

I wouldn’t worry about it too much.  You could do some basic things, such as put out a good smelling handsoap from Bath and Body, have a small basket with potpourri, put out female personal items organized in a small basket, set out a vase full of fresh flowers (that don’t necessarily match your centerpieces), toss down a fluffy bathroom rug, make cute signs for the doors to make them sex-specific for your event, buy tushy-approved toliet paper (instead of the cheap stuff), etc . . .

As a wedding guest, I would not care much about the bathroom . . . . unless there’s not enough toliet paper or it’s dirty/smells.

As long as the toilets are clean, and the bathroom doesn’t smell…I think you will be ok.  That being said, I can understand the importance of making them cute.  Have you thought about hanging out some curtains? I know there isn’t a window, but nobody has to know that. You could cover some of the peeling paint by hanging out some cute curtains that match your colors or the venue.  Maybe if the paint is peeling around the sink, you could put vines or some sort of greenery there.

The bathroom at my venue sounds the same as yours. It’s annoying, yes, but I’m kind of over it. It’s a bathroom. People pee and poop in it. I’m not making myself crazy over it. the one think I wish it had was a place for the ladies to freshen up but I might use this other room for that purpose as a sort of “powder room” type situation.
