Black Claw Feet

I was hoping to have a powder room reveal for you today but we have this problem where we think things will take 2 hours and then they take 6 instead.  It should be done tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

One project I did complete this week-end was a Pinterest inspired project.  I was going to use it for the big Pinterest party on Wednesday but I have something better.  The suspense.

I saw this image on Pinterest via Kohler


Hello, pretty black feet.  I want a tub with pretty black feet.  Hmm, I have a claw foot tub..



I also have an unnecessary urge to paint things that don’t need painted.  Let’s do this.

I grabbed some Black Magic Olympic paint that was hanging out in the basement and went to town.




The black feet are so beautifully creepy.

I always get nervous when I do projects like this but I’m digging the tub’s free new look.

What do you think?  Who else is Pinterest challenging it up this week?

Linking up to the Pinterest challenge at: Young House Love, Bower Power, House of Earnest, Ana White


  1. Love it! Girl, you're daring. I would've seen the picture and been too chicken to actually make it happen. Way to be bold! Totally worth it.

  2. Loooove! You know how I feel about pinterest, lol!

  3. I'd totally bathe in your now black feet claw tub. Looks great-- so much better than the white claw foot tub (chipping paint and all) I grew up bathing in. I'm going to cross my fingers that there wasn't lead in that paint...

  4. Love the black feet. They make a great but still subtle statement. Way to go!

  5. It looks awesome! Way to take the plunge!

  6. so fun! i love the black feet! You could always change it up too...try silver/gold next time, go back to white! the beauty of paint :)

  7. LOVE the black feet!

    I'm in for the challenge (so glad I finished a project before I left town!!!)

  8. I love it! And you can always paint it back if you change your mind, right?

    I'd like to join the pinterest challenge...but I am pinterestless. I still haven't taken the plunge.

  9. Wow!!! I totally love the the color black for the feet! The chandliers look awesome too!! You really have an eye for these things!
    I have a creation I created from pinterest! Now if I can remember to post it on Wed. & link up! ;)

  10. Wow! What a dramatic change. I'm absolutely loving it.

  11. I just checked out my Google Reader and realized that there were 7 posts from you I hadn't read. How on Earth did that happen? So, I'll comment on all of them here. I love what you did with your tub. It looks great and I'm jealous you have one of those old fashioned tubs. Very cool.
    I also like the "Get out of my head" post idea. The metal chairs look great with the wood. I wouldn't have thought of it, but when I see it, it makes sense.
    Your toilet cracked me up. I really thought that it was something you found for sale. It looks very 80s to me.
    Sorry this was so long. I just had to get caught up!

  12. Ah I love that! It's so classy and pinky in the air! ;)

  13. Oooh I love the black feet! I never would have thought of that. Have you seen those cool furniture pieces that look like they have animal feet? Love those too.

  14. the black feet seriously make the world of difference. what an unreal task to take on! i would have been terrified of screwing it up! kudos to you for being so brave!

  17. I'm so jealous of your claw foot tub! Found your site through the Pinterest Challenge. Painting the feet black is a great modern take on a classic fixture. It looks so classy. :)

    P.S. Your dog is the cutest!
