The bathroom saga continues.
I shamefully neglected to take a picture of the 29 year old, outdated bathroom before we started this project. But here is a shot with the doors removed from the narrow, can’t get anything in there and find it back, linen closet. The vanity to the left was also outdated, with the formica being the original.
It was time to gut this room and start over! And that is exactly what we did.
We even removed the stained glass window. Now that the linen closet was gone, we could center it on the wall and frame it properly.
Did you know that cast iron tubs are dated? Me neither. But they are – and this particular one will be 100 years old next August.
Jim spent countless hours sanding the tub down to bare metal. I think he put 4 coats of paint on it. The claw feet now sport a touch of artistic talent.
Out of the garage and into the truck bed.
Alioop and bend around the step railing, into the hallway.
Back down ya go. Breathe boys. Now, down the hallway.
Alioop again! Bend it right through the bathroom doorway.
And that, my friends, is how to bend a cast iron bath tub.
Now for the finishing touches. You know, minor things like stool, sink, lights, etc.I can’t wait to post a “project complete” picture!
