Full Master Bath Makeover with Clawfoot Tub

Here is my master bath that I tackled all by myself. This all happened less than a year ago. This was by far the best, learning experience I have ever had. 

This was the before, a basic builder home bathroom. I wish I could find old photos of the opposite end of the bathroom. Believe me, your not missing much it was just ugly, basic build grade master bath.

  So here is my after and a list.
  • Vintage dresser repainted. 
  • For inside clearance for plumbing, I added a wood top to raise it by1inch.
  • Delta Faucets from Lowes 
  • Mirrors from Lowes, they were dark and have been painted Behr Oyster. 
  • I used original white sinks from the old vanity.
  • Light Fixture Polished Antique Nickel Hinkley, I love love this fixture very well made.
  • The walls are made from 4x8 8mm underlayment wood, I had this cut down to 8"plank stripes.
  • Planks are painted Behr Swiss Coffee. A perfect white.
  • The chandelier was given to me by a friend and I love it...

I found this Cast iron tub on craigslist for a great deal, it was also in great shape. I had to sand the outside of the tube to remove some rust, I then primed and painted. The Inside porcelain was in great shape, all I had to do was clean with a basic bath cleaning product. 

  • White subway tile from Home Depot.
  • Snow white grout.
  • Quick Pitch pre-slope system, this gave me the perfect slope. In removing the old insert I gained 6 feet around. Awesome!
  • Flooring is Pebble Tile with Snow white grout.
  • Rainshower head is from lowes. 
  • The shower handle is a Delta series. 
  • Shower arm was a fantastic deal off of eBay $10.00. I purchased it knowing it was chrome, so when it arrived I gave it a very light sanding with a green scrubbing pad and voila, a perfect satin look. I made sure I sanded in the same direction to give an even look.
  • The Stone is a long quart backsplash, that I cut down to size and placed as my entry shower top.
The tube hangs over the ledge by an inch and if I ever put glass. I have more than enough room to place it. I have also gained 4.5sq feet by the tube. Plus by removing the old vanity, I gained more square footage around that area too!

  • Shower curtains are from Amazon and are much longer than your normal curtains.
  • Curtain rings are basic curtain rod rings purchased at Target.
  • The shower rod is made out of copper. I soldered brackets to the rod on all three ends. This allowed me to screw them into the ceiling and walls. As you can see its not copper anymore, I gave it a light brushing of silver paint.

  • Wall color on the opposite side of the bathroom is Revere Pewter from Benjamin Moore

  • Tile is from lowes 
And that is it, all done and I'm in love...
