Claw foot tub

Just a quick note to say I haven't forgotten about this blog. For reasons I won't go into, I am temporarily without transport which has made it hard to get to Hungry Jacks for my Internet fix.

HOWEVER - drumroll - our satellite dish is booked to be installed on 28 February so I will have the Internet again oh so soon, and my car back shortly thereafter (thank goodness).

Plenty of projects are ticking quietly along. Last weekend, we found an old claw foot tub in the garden being used as a planter. A quick clean out revealed it's in pretty sound condition. We're hoping to get it re-enamelled and fitted with new feet for the main bathroom.

It's very exciting, looking at ways we can recycle and re-use what's already on the property. Those bits of buried treasure just about makes the three skip bins and countless tip trips to remove the previous owners rubbish worth it!

  1. If that doesn't work out it would be a great garden feature with pretty flowers!

  2. Well done , it looks like a real beauty, they are nice and big, for a good soak or a Mum and baby relax and play.If you find another, they make wonderful fish ponds, you can put some big rocks in the water to drown proof and make caves for the fish to escape the kids and the birds, with some water plants it will keep itself clean, and the fish eat the mozzie wrigglers.

  5. You need a metal detector Edwina. You might find an old Fergie tractor hidden down the back somewhere.
