You know what is missing here? Some subway tile...

Karly is going to hyperventilate all over this post; #2 looks very much like what she's planning for her guest bathroom.

Meanwhile, I have the dreaded subway tile in my 60s bathrooms, but at least it's white. I can't count the number of mid century homes around here that have pink, teal, or even brown tiles all over the place. Gross.

Guess who totally pin pointed my response?

thanks so much for this post!!!! I'm totally working on my mostly concrete bathroom plans right now and this is EXACTLY what I needed!!!!

I actually found a clawfoot tub on craigslist this weekend that I'm thinking about buying, it's only $100 and then it will be about $250-$300 to restore it. the tub has been listed for awhile so I asked the guy if he would come down on price for his rusted-out tub and he wrote back a one word response: "no." There is nothing I hate more than someone who isn't willing to haggle (Erin will verify this) so I'm thinking about passing and looking elsewhere - they're not that hard to find. What do you think? Am I just being crazy?

Sounds like an asshole. Unless it's really a super special tub/size that you'll never see again, pass.

I agree with Erin, Karly.

Thanks for getting my back, ladies. That crotchety old man can keep his freggin tub.
