My Clawfoot...

So, yesterday, the plumbers brought out my beautiful clawfoot. It's really no secret that I have an undying love for these tubs. I love that they are vintage-ly luxurious... ready to be filled with bubbles and not just functional but beautiful.

So.... when I envisioned our bathroom, I wanted the clawfoot to be the FIRST thing you saw. I wanted the vanity, toilet and shower to all be hidden away in corners giving my tub all the glory. I have to say.... today when I walked into our bathroom... she stole the show! That tub put a little pitter-patter in my heart and a pep in my step. I'm in love with my clawfoot :)

Like most things, I was pretty particular about my tub. I wanted the classic flat roll top (not slipper style) and I wanted it double ended... round at both ends. It was also imperative that the 'feet' be actual claws and surprise, surprise... white. The faucet definitely needed to be in the center of the tube since the tub is centered on the wall. All these details, and there you have it... the perfect 'Lauri' clawfoot tub!

I'm only showing you a peek because the completed picture will be worth the wait....

They have grouted most of the floors, and almost finished putting up all the backsplashes. They should finish grouting everything this week (about time!).

But... what's even more exciting.... they are starting our driveways on Thursday! And next week, they are starting and finishing our wood floors!! Which means, all they will have left are touch-ups!!

I can honestly say, with all my heart, I thought this day would never come!!!
