My New Bath Tub

SOOOOO.

Update on yellow bench!!!
Well, Steve finished painting the bench & it turned out great.
A bright sun shiny yellow.
YOW!!!

BEFORE,  PLAIN
AFTER,  ELECTRIC







Don't you just love it?








On to the bath tub.

I have always wanted a cast iron bath  tub, ALWAYS! They seem so Romantic, so Exotic, so 30's, so everything.
So, Heather & I were at the Bluebonnet Trails craft Festival in Ennis & saw this beauty.
                                  


Well, needless to say, $150.00 later it was mine. (Thank you Heather)

My poor neglected tub sat on the deck for about a year waiting paitently for some attention.
Begging for attention, pleading for attention, demanding attention!!!

OK!!!!! I'll buy some paint, I will give you the attention you deserve circia 1939 tub!!
(Actual date some how applied to tub in raised numerals.)

Well,I bought the paint, Steve painted her.
She is dreaming of me lighting candles for her, lounging with bubbles in her,
having a glass of wine while bubbling in her, she is decadent and doesn't care. She is proud of it!
MY LOVELY TUB, COMPLIMENTS OF HEATHER!!!
AND THANKS TO STEVE FOR PAINTING HER.










TO BE CONTINUED!!!

I have an old cast tub lying around the yard(if he hasn't taken it in for scrap.I forgot to hide it) I may look it up and bring it up on my porch today, and paint it, and plant something in it.I have a porch like yours. Mine goes around three sides of the house,so there's plenty of room for it.(if it's still here)Pop and his eldest daughter be going to the Flea Market today,today is their day,so I'll have an opportunity to get Old Rose out to help me maneuver it on to the porch.It is a super heavy tub.I will give you an update if I get it done.
