Dreaming of a Clawfoot Tub

Today, I’m dreaming of a Clawfoot Tub. It would be uber glorious to have one of these beauties living in the bathroom of my dream home. I can imagine myself soaking up the bubbles after a long day of mommy and work duties, especially in the upcoming cooler months.

And in my dreams, it would look something like this…welcoming, elegant, and simplistic.

If there were one item that you can have in your home, what would it be? Please share!

Have a fabulous Sunday!

  1. I’m with you on the tub πŸ™‚ I want one, I’d like to re-do my bathroom to look more like the period my house was build in, maybe white subway tile on the walls too. I really just want an old farm house, one that hasn’t been “updated” with anything. Just a simple old farm house.

  2. I’m with tkmorin, a whole room with built-in shelving for a library would be on my list. A library with a fireplace? Now that would be ultra-dreamy…someday!

    Found my clawfoot tub, complete with faucet/showerhead attachment on craigslist for a song. It sat in the middle of my kitchen for 5 months (ah, the surprises that pop up during a DIY bathroom remodel!) but was so worth it. Nothing like soaking in one of those old cast iron tubs, they hold the heat really nicely. Hope you get one.

  3. My grandmother had one and I loved it. She had a little faucet so it made lots of bubbles with bubble bath. I had always said that would be one of the few things I had to have. When I finally got a house I redid my bathroom after I moved in but could not really afford one. But I found one at http://www.vintagetub.com . They had a discounted / sale area. It was one that had gotten some scratches on the right side. So I got it discounted (quite a bit so I could afford it). That side faces the wall so I never see the scratches. I was so happy the day the truck pulled up and the guy unloaded the create (with a mini forklift) at my door and the guys working on the house carried it in. Luv it!

  4. I used to have one of those in the apartment I lived in back in the States. The building was about 100 years old by the time I moved away, to give an idea of how old the tub itself might be. Have you considered looking at recycling or refab centres? I knew a couple of places in Minnesota that would strip out buildings being demolished of things like doors and marble and such. I don’t know if they would collect the tubs, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they did. You might get an old one for a deal, if that is the case.

  5. I really really like the idea of this bath tub! It looks pretty relaxing! But I’d prefer a massive chaise longue to lie down with a steaming cup of tea and enjoy some good reading!!!
