Romantic ClawFoot Tub

                      After Months of searching for an original Claw Foot Tub, My dream came true..  With a Lil stipulation of having to  dig her out of a debris pile full of muddy water-twigs-brush-Lil creatures, I finally saw her buried away-As we rescued her out, My Love grew.
How Charming she is.
We Rented a Heavy Duty Power Washer-Used a Belt Sander and scrubbed as much as we could-
Then Sprayed her a new Clean Coat of Pure White.



Now all Clean-Beautiful and in Her Glory-
Resting in the front window of the shoppe for Display for all to admire, Filled with shades of Green Hydrangeas, Original Feet, Darling Wood Framed Tray-Apothecary Jars filled with french milled soaps, A Chippy Ladder to hold the towels, Vintage Crystal Chandelier to finish off this Romantic Bathroom..
The Tub says it All.

  2. Ahhh! .... Calgon take me away!

    I'm coveting a big claw footed tub myself. I spotted on at the Flea Market a few months back...but didn't purchase, kicking myself now. It was only $100. and needed very little work.

    I bet this one sells--- it is for sale right? or only display?
