Home Tour: The Bathroom

One of the best parts of our home is the original claw foot tub in our bathroom.  Until 2009, this was our only bathroom.  When we first moved in we retiled the floors, installed a new shower door, painted the outside of the tub and resurfaced the inside of the tub.  

Opposite the toilet is a glass corner shower (not shown in the pictures).

This room is now in need of a fresh coat of paint, and I’m afraid it will probably go a shade of grey (I just can’t get enough of that color).  My dream is to put a curtain surround around the tub and add the fixtures for a shower over the tub (something like this one).  Then we could take out the corner shower and have a double vanity with more storage.  This is one of my New Years Resolutions for 2012.   

I’ve decorated the room with shells we collected while living in Papua New Guinea.  The jars of shells where shells I just picked off the beach.  Hanging above the tub, I have three shells that were painted on bark (I bought those in Fiji).  

For an update, here’s some of the work I’ve done.   And this is the inspiration for the bathroom re-do.  And here’s the finished product.
