We have a Kohler circa 1989 wall mount toilet; i.e., the seat and tank are both on an outside wall. It's also avocado green.

Is it possible to have the toilet refinished in another color? Pros? Cons?

    Pros: You can spend more than the toilet's worth to have a pretty, old toilet. Wait, that's a con. Cons: see pros. – isherwood Apr 26 '17 at 17:45
  • Can't be reasonably done. Get a new one. – Jim Stewart Apr 26 '17 at 18:01
  • As I understand it, current wall mounts all have the tank inside the wall. That would require the expense of reconfiguring the wall. Also, does "reasonably done" refer to just $$ or to the toilet itself? – RJo Apr 26 '17 at 19:27
  • rustoleum.com/product-catalog/consumer-brands/specialty/… We carried this product in the paint department when I worked at the orange box store. – Chris M. Apr 26 '17 at 19:54
  • You may want to check on local companies specializing in tub refinishing. While "Bathfitters" manufactures a liner to fit over your tub other companies apply a coating to the existing surface. If they can do a tub I don't see why they can't do a toilet. – mikes Apr 27 '17 at 0:11
