Bathing Room Restoration – Clawfoot Tub Edition

I found this clawfoot tub for sale on craigslist for $60 several years ago. We picked it up from a pasture where it was being used as a watering tank for horses.

When we got it home we found it was larger than the current bathtub and would not fit the original bathroom. So she sat and she sat. And she sat some more. Until we had to rip out the bathroom floor and found there was room for her in there after all!

This has been the longest bathroom repair and restoration and I am reaching the point of no return where I want to hurt somebody if they don’t hurry up and help me get this done. Because I am almost done. Done. DONE!

Yesterday I flipped her over, primed and painted her outside walls red.

The feet got there own fancy pedicure treatment.

I restored the board and batten to the bathroom walls and now the area where she sits looks like nothing ever happened here in the past 105 years since the house was built.

Here is a little sneak peak. I don’t want to reveal too much before the bathroom is finished.

I am really starting to see my dreams take shape in reality!

Helping Hands
Thank you for your generous donations to the rescue fund for Jack and Diana. Both of these wonderful Percheron horses were saved from the kill pens of slaughter auctions.

Jack is recovering from a severe leg injury and has many more months to go before his wounds are healed.

Diana could barely walk on her broken hooves. With extensive and expensive farrier work she is now standing tall and without pain.

She has at least a year ahead of her before her broken hooves will grow out to become healthy new feet to stand on. Her treatment will require ongoing farrier work expected to total into the thousands of dollars.

Jack and Diana both need a few hundred pounds on their bodies to be back in good health.

Through your generous donations and support Jack and Diana can expect a full return to their good health and sound footing.


My daughter's senior trip donation fund is now open. Thank you for contributing to her trip to visit England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Donation accepted through paypal.
