Sorry guys…is it already the end of the week? Where did it go? I had some posts to put up, but that got neglected. The good news for me is that my bathroom is done and it’s clean and beautiful. A room to now enjoy.
We ended up keeping the tub, and I spent an afternoon scrubbing all the stains with Lime Out. Seriously, I scrubbed until my hands were raw, but it worked. And it now looks new. I’m so glad we decided to keep it because that tub style is very hard to find. And I’m glad that we didn’t have to re glaze the tub. After doing some research we found out that it’s not so great with children and everyday use.
Since we had to re-pipe the whole bathroom, I had them take out the large radiator and move the sink to that opposite wall. Good decision because we acquired more vanity space. We put a toe-kick heater in place of the radiator, which is located under the vanity.
I bought many of the fixtures from Vintage Tub–great online resource if you want the vintage bathroom look or need to replace vintage bathroom pieces. Prices are good. Below is a list of other resources and before pictures.
