Wow, that bathroom was hideous! Good for you guys seeing the potential through all the mess. I love your transformation - it looks very serene.

I can't believe that they sank that tub...it's gorgeous and I love that you saved it.  The sink is awesome.  Very nice bathroom!  And yes, I am a little jealous!   Wink

Thanks everyone. It was a ton of work but I'm really happy with how it turned out.

We didn't use any special paint. Just a high gloss latex paint. We read that it is important to use latex so it can expand and contract with the heat of the tub/water.

Beautiful update!
The sunken tub is just so wrong on so many levels - hiding a clawfoot is always a crime, very dangerous for a nighttime walk to the bathroom, and how do you get out of it??
You gave it such a clean and fresh look that makes the room look so much more spacious.
I painted a clawfoot once myself - it really makes a huge difference.

I can't believe that beautiful tub was SUNK in the floor like that.  Not only does it look kinda dangerous but the tub has FEET, how could you hide that? It looks goregous by the way, modern with a hint of the past, loverly

Ugly. Is irrelevant. It is an immeasurable insult to a woman, and then supposedly the worst crime you can commit as a woman. But ugly, as beautiful, is an illusion. - Margaret Cho

I didn't hate the picture of the tub sunken in the floor, but I can understand not wanting that.  But...why anyone would do that with a gorgeous tub is beyond me!  I could understand it better if the tub was ugly.  Tongue

Nice transformation!

I share the sentiments of the others.  I also don't understand why they sunk it in if it has feet.  My main concern is the cleanliness of the tub.  Bathroom floors are full of germs no matter how you clean it.  The germs and dirt may just get to the tub.  How can one dip oneself into that tub? 

Your tub and sink looks wonderful.  Great job.  Your hard work really paid off.
