Clawfoot Tub

When designing our master bathroom, I knew a clawfoot tub was a must-have! I grew up dreaming of having a clawfoot tub in my adult bathroom and now it was time to make that dream a reality.

What’s not to love about a super deep bath tub with beautiful curves and super cute feet?

How can you not love those creepy cute clawfeet???  And that faucet!! 

We originally looked on Craigslist for a tub.  After some research, we learned a local bathroom resurfacing company had tubs in stock that we could choose from. After selecting our tub, the resurfacing company chemically etched, neutralized, doubled primed and top coated the tub to ensure a long finish life. I wish I had a before picture.

We liked the idea of having something repurposed into our home.  It is a good example of our decorating style….something old made modern.

Who shares my love of clawfoot tubs?  Or do those feet creep you out?


  1. Omg, I love your tub! The legs add so much character. Sigh...I wish we had the room for one in our house.

  2. I love it. Our new house has a clawfoot, but we had to remove it. The bathroom is so super small, it didn't fit and I couldn't have added a curtain with the wall curves. A friend of ours took it. Someday, I hope to have one like yours. What a dreamy bathroom. Looks like something out of a magazine.

  3. Oh my word. So beautiful!! I'm also in awe of the size of your bathroom! So dreamy and spa-like.

  4. Love clawfoot tubs!!! I've never been able to have one though; in our houses they just wouldn't have fit.

  5. I love your bathroom and that tub is just perfect. I love faucet too. I would spend hours in there...

  6. LOVE!!! wow i can imagine myself relaxing in there!

  7. Just linked to you today. Happy weekend!

  8. Do you have a shower too or just the tub? Very cool!

    I read your comment back to me about the clarisonic...what did you mean your face hates you? did it make it worse before it got better?

  9. We have a shower too...I'll show that next week!

  10. ahhhh there we go! Your home is spectacular. I loved that tub...oh how I would love one. Hope to see you back at my place tomorrow night for my weekly newbie party. You will be sure to meet some new peeps:) Hey my husband is a pharmacy guys and gals sure work hard!

  11. Your tub is beautiful ~ as is your whole bathroom! At first I thought they were "inspiration" photos, and I guess they are ~ for the rest of us!!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog, and we love our pool too, and we need it here is TX!!
    Have a great weekend.

  12. Such a great way to highlight your tub! The mix of old and modern is such a great juxtaposition. Nice job! Thanks for linking up to my house tour party!!

  13. I built my bathroom around a clawfoot tub too... only thing is, I have been in my house four years and have yet to get my tub ;( Yours looks lovely!!

  14. Beautiful remodel :) Just found your blog through the blog hop :)

  15. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! What a gorgeous bathroom and love your tub!!

  16. Amazing bathroom! I'm jealous of your TV above the tub!

  17. My master bath has almost the exact same layout...minus the claw foot tub. It is clean and beautiful. I love clean lines! Simplicity is under rated in my opinion. ;) Thanks a million for joining Roomspiration!

  18. Absolutely lovely! Really appreciate you linking up this great bath post at the Roomspiration blog party. Btw, I am admiring all your creativity in your blog so may I invite you also to join us at Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop? Hope to see you there at the party :)

  19. That's a remarkable amount of space allocated to the clawfoot tub and is so symmetrical, I had to look twice to be sure I wasn't looking at the bathroom in a mirror.

    I know it said that you were after a deep tub and I applaud the resurfacing of the old rolled rim style tub but if you were after a deeper tub in the vein of the classic clawfoot style, go with a Swedish. The Swedish tubs are 17 1/2" deep compared to the average of 13 - 14" deep on the traditional clawfoot tubs.
