in a store once somewhere in the Texas Hill Country, they had a bathtub in the middle of the store. Inside was this lifesize mermaid doll - she was so cool - and all these glass ornaments in various shades of blue. They had some hanging ornaments to look like bubbles that were floating away, and i think they had some sparkly fish dolls. It was really cool, that would be fun to have in your room.

If it were me, I'd shut the water off, fill the tub with stuffing, put a large piece of luxurious fabric over it and tuck it in. Then I'd add some lovely little pillows and sleep in it. Although, I think it'd be pretty hard if you were over five feet tall. It could still be a couch though! However, I ADORE the pond idea. I think it would be better without gravel, but I'd make sure to cover the drain! Not permanently though, the next person to be in that room may want to turn it into their own personal bathroom. Put up some good ole' Christmas lights around one of those hanging shower curtain holders that are meant for those tubs, fill the area with some fake or living vines, ferns, and flowers, add a few large and comfy pillows and make it a relaxing pond area. Good luck.

I'm a big fan of fireplaces in bedrooms (so sexy and romantic) so if I were you I would TOTALLY fill it a bit more than halfway with some sparkly sand, and put candles of all different shapes and sizes, maybe monochromatic, in the sand.

Put a big, ornate Moroccan mirror or a screen behind it to bounce the warm glow into the rest of your room.

I do like the couch idea.

I like the candy idea too. You could fill it with chocolate coins and pretend you were Scrooge McDuck.
That could get pretty gross though  Tongue

The heart may freeze or it can burn
The pain will ease if I can learn
There is no future
There is no past
I live this moment as my last
There's only us
There's only this
Forget regret
Or life is yours to miss
No other road
No other way
No day but today

I just wanted to add that if you go with the pond idea, it would be better to get some fancy goldfish, and definately not koi. Koi get very large and will not have room to swim in the bathtub. Other than that, I think that is a neat idea.

This is a sort of ridiculous idea, but I have to say it.

You can somehow cut the tub in half and make it into a loveseat like in Breakfast at Tiffany's!
Or you can give it to me. I've wanted a couch-tub since I saw that movie.

I can't really think of any other sollution, even though this one is pretty impossible, because bathtub material is very hard and heavy.

I know what yer thinkin'. Did he fire 6 shots or only 5? Frankly, in all the confusion I kinda lost track myself. But you gotta ask yourself one question. Do I feel lucky?
Well do ya punk?

my aunt lives way out in the sticks and doesn't having running water in her house. she has a claw foot tub and she painted the outside of the tub pink, and put a little tray type thing across it and put little things like soap (with retro labels on them), pink face cloths, a vintage magazine etc. when she redid her bathroom she used pink, black and white as her colors and now it has a retro/parisy tpe of feel to it. it's super cool

the point of my story is, that she used the tub as decoration and used it as her main peice and built the room around it!

Hello, I've been lurking around craftster for months and finally had to join so I could tell you about this: in my elementary school in the library, there was a bathtub! It was painted on the outside and inside like a blue sky with clouds and rainbows, and there were tons of pillows in it. It was the best place for reading and all of the kids used to fight over who got to sit in it. So that's my suggestion: a reading tub.

It's okay because I didn't really mean it

I love the idea of teh Breakfast at TIffany's style couch

and the candle idea sounded GORGEOUS

unfortunately, I've just recently moved and that house is now being rented out...I should tell the renters about all your awesome ideas


Thank you all!
