A New White Bath Tub (Good-bye Green Tub!)

Dean and I are finally giving our one bathroom a full makeover. We’ve already discussed our plans and shared a style board. In this post we’re talking about our plans for making over our tub and shower. You can find all our bathroom makeover posts by clicking here

This post is brought to you by Bath Fitter.


Our bathtub is white!

I repeat – our bathtub is white, our bathtub is white!

Hallelujah for white bathtubs!

A little over a month ago, we shared our bathroom makeover plans, and our ugly bathtub before photos with you.

Here’s the inspiration look we were going for:

Home Made Lovely Farmhouse Bathroom Makeover

And if you recall our bathtub looked like this:

shower head before

bath faucet before 1

tub before

To put it into perspective, this was definitely a “first world problem”. I mean we have indoor fixtures, running water and I’ve definitely seen worse bathrooms. But our old bathtub certainly wouldn’t fall into the “cozy and beautiful” category that describes the rest of our house.

But now?

Now our white bathtub is inviting, clean, and crisp.

So how did we go from dingy green and stained to a clean and crisp white bath tub in just one day? The answer is Bath Fitter.

Maybe you remember Gary coming out to take precise measurements during our consultation? Bath Fitter Gary Measuring 2

Well our installer, Jamie, was just as nice and just as precise in his work.

After showing him the way to our bathroom, Jamie was careful to lay down several mats to protect our floors – all the way from our front door to the bathroom.

Then he double checked measurements.

And explained how he would remove a section of the wall to fit the new fixtures.

Jamie walked us through each step as he made progress.

 After a little wait he finally made some good-looking progress – adding the one piece, seamless subway tile-look surround!

The surround was made and cut to fit our space perfectly!

Jamie installed the new fixtures…gorgeous oil-rubbed bronze fixtures… and handy-dandy shelving.

And finally the gorgeous white bath tub!

Then Jamie did his thing and sealed it all up nice and water-tight everywhere.

And in one day our bath tub went from green and dingy to clean and crisp white.

We are SO happy with the results and highly recommend Bath Fitter.

    Wow! This looks so so amazing! Definitely looking into them… we have a scary guest bath in the house we just bought, and this might be the perfect thing! 🙂

    Is it really cheaper than having someone come and re tile etc.? Let me know, I am thinking of re doing my shower.

    • Shannon says

      I honestly don’t know. We didn’t look into that option because we didn’t want to deal with the length of a complete redo or the mess. We wanted quick, beautiful and easy.

  3. Roxanne says

    Wow, what a difference a day can make! When I do a makeover like this in my own home it makes me wonder how I lived with it in the ugly condition for so long. Love the fixtures and your accessories!

  4. Pamela Martin says

    We had Bathfitters redo our bathtub over 5 years ago. No fuss – no muss as they say. It looks as perfect today as it did then. I am so glad we went with them. I cannot imagine how much more money and time and mess a traditional refit would have been. Thankfully, I don’t have to find out.

    • Shannon says

      Oh I’m so glad you’ve been so happy with yours! My favorite part about the wear and tear is the way they include fade protection right in the materials – so no yellowing over time!

  5. Heart says

    Wow! Your new bathroom looks super cozy, Shannon! I love the white tub together with your Tuscan bronze bathroom fixtures. They give an elegant look to your bathroom.

  6. Janine says

    Hey Shannon! I know this is late, but the tub turned out beautiful! I love all the plans and will check the latest posts to see how the whole room turned out! I just wanted to ask where you got the adorable soap dish you had on the ledge. It’s adorable and would look fantastic on my rustic shelves (DIY from one of your earlier … Way earlier… Posts lol) in my guest bathroom.

    Love all your posts!
