Claws foot tub....

 when we bought our house...
it had only one bathroom...
with a tub...surrounded by UGLY OLD pink tile...
Hubby tore down the tile...
only to find...a claws foot tub....
the inside was in good shape...
Hubby repainted the outside...
and the legs...
well that was 15 years ago...
we used it for a long time...
then had plumbing issues...
so it sat for a while....
 we pulled it out of that bathroom.....
Hubby got all the paint of the feet...
we decided to leave the natural look...
with a sealer on it...
 
 we had the inside redone...
Hubby repainted the outside...
a soft gray...
 
now it is in our new bathroom...
Hubby and I are both in love with it...
theirs nothing like soaking in a big tub...
it has a hand held shower...
so hair washing is easy....
I may never use a regular shower again....

How I would LOVE to have this tub!!! Such wonderful character!! And I'd use it as the focal point and go 'antique' for the entire room.

Beautiful treasure.

We have one in an outside area for summer bathing. Nothing like a deep soak in one of these tubs.

Love the restoration! We have a clawfoot tub also and they're so much more comfortable than the new ones (probably unless a lot of money is spent) and we have two others that my husband found on a demo job. They're wonderful! I also love all the photos on your sidebar. What fun!
I'm following you via Feedly and GFC. :-)

It is gorgeous. I have always dreamed of having a tub like that. I remember one in my grandparents flat in Chicago.
