The re-enamel job was terribly done and after about two years it started chipping and cracking. Now sheets of it are coming off the tub in 2″ sections and it looks horrible (and is not super safe with a little one around). And once it’s been re-enameled, it can’t be done again. So now I have to rip out the tub and tile to replace it, which means also demoing the the old archway framing the tub, which means replacing the floor. It’s a domino effect! Luckily, my custom vanity and top can stay, as well as the new toilet. So while we’re doing all this, I figured let’s give this bath a facelift too. I still love how it looks, but now that it’s mostly Henry’s bath, I want to make it a little more masculine.
I love this art (print from Artfully Walls, frame is antique) and am kind of using it as a jumping off point for the design.
