Splashes of Color in the Bath
A blue tub, yellow accessories, and white vintage sinks fill this new space with character.
A New Finish
Too bad for the horses, Donna had the ability to see potential in the claw-foot tub. All it took was refinishing the piece to repair defects in the porcelain. This can cost between $500 and $1,000; a new claw-foot tub typically costs more, with prices starting around $1,500. The refinishing process involves sanding, acid-etching, priming and painting the interior of the tub, and sandblasting the outside. The exterior is then primed and painted. Donna chose the same blue for the tub that is on the walls. Now the fixture looks new without losing its old-fashioned character.
