Rub A Dub Dub

We had our clawfoot tub in the master bathroom refinished over the last few weeks. When we bought the house from the bank, they had done the bare minimum to make things look systematically ok. In the case of the tub, this meant that it was painted with a high gloss household paint. This obviously would not have held up to any kind of use so we wanted a more durable finish. Holly found a local fellow who does a spray on silica based coating.

So two weeks ago, I went ahead and stripped the paint off of the tub - and prompty discovered that the bank had patched the dings with wood filler! Todd, our tub guy came in a properly patched up the holes and completed the spraying this afternoon. The results are tremendous and I can't wait to finally get to use the tub.
