In this post: 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. 

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:

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.
