Vintage Bathtub





This is the claw foot tub that we picked up a few weeks ago.It was traveling to and from my husbands job in the back of our minivan until last night.I thought my fingers were going to fall off from frost bite when we carried it in.It didn't seem as heavy loading it but seemed extremely heavy unloading.I am going to paint the outside .Not sure what color maybe black? Two of the feet are brass plated so I need to paint it a color that will make them stand out.The reason we picked this tub from Craigs list was that it came with brass fixtures and all the extras(water lines,drain ,overflow etc.)I hadn't noticed until I took the pictures that it has the "hot" "cold" written on the handles!!!!! The person we bought it from had bought the tub and the fixtures 20 years ago intending to put it in his house but never did.This tub is going to go in my dressing room and if you have read my blog you would know that room (and my kitchen sink) was the reason I wanted this house!!! So it is a little sad that we are converting to a master bathroom but with 4 kids and one bathroom I'll get over it.I LOVE clawfoot bath tubs so I know in the end I will fall in love with the room when we are done!!!

What a wonderful find! Painting the feet black will make a huge difference. I love the faucets. A claw foot tub is the best tub in the world. Sigh.
