Vintage Claw Foot tub Restoration

So excited, today we went and got my tub that I plan on restoring. Its an old cast iron claw foot tub. My Uncle Gary got this tub from my maw-maw Agnes. (There is a link to an article about her further down in my blog if your interested.) One of the reasons this project is so important to my heart is because of my Uncle Gary. It was important to him he loved old stuff. So do I. He was an amazing person, one of those people you just wanted to be around. Magnetic. He had it restored and put it in a barn house that my cousin Jason Soileau lived in until it burned down in 1994. The tub has set there since today. I remember how cool that barn was and that tub impressed me so much with the brass fixtures. . Now comes the work. I’ll update as I go but this is a start. I have to thank my cousin Jamie (Soileau/Laughlin) for letting me have it, and my uncle Shawn for bringing his backhoe to come move that heavy thing!
