I know that was gross, wicked gross. So I have the bead board, chair rail, and a couple cabinets built. You will see a lot of reclaimed wood in my work, the inside frames on the cabinets were old window frames I removed 3 winters ago, and burning coal in my living room allowed me to replace windows in the dead of winter!

Not yet, I will be making the inside and outside corner trim and need crown molding on top of the walls and still thinking of the baseboard design. I'm going for the craftsmen/vintage look. Any ideas? Lets see!

Nice job. When I'm looking I usually go to youtube and type what I'm looking for in the search bar. You can also try google. Images of vintage/craftsmen style bathroom I'm sure you'll get some ideas. Unfortunately my bathroom was remodeled first in the 50's then 2003 so nothing original there to help you (wish they left the clawfoot tub aaargh). I also try old house listings. Sometimes looking at other peoples houses you can get some ideas. Good luck. Matt.

Hey Smitty, we had that same bathtub when we lived in Scranton.

When we were selling the house, these people wanted to buy it but wanted a inspection done to see if there were any problems. I got the report back from the real estate agent and it listed "black electrical tape on trap drain under kitchen sink", "Bathroom tub faucet stuck on shower". I knew the black electrical tape was there when we bought the house, it never leaked, i had the new plastic pipes but never got around to fixing it. The bathroom i knew was stuck on shower but we didn't care about that so i never fixed it. The real estate agent said they wanted it fixed, i went back and forth saying the house is sold as-is blah blah(they already talked me into leaving the new fridge and new dryer). She was like" if you really want to sell this house you will do what the buyers want or you might lose the sale". So i go up to Lowes and buy the cheap tub shower fixtures, when i get home i realize there is no access to the fixtures as it was tiled over with the pink tile after they were installed. Called up the real estate lady and said "here is the deal, I'll buy the supplies to fix the kitchen and bathroom and the buyers can install it " So said ok, deal done.

I started the bathroom years ago....still haven't finished it. The clawfoot tub that was installed when indoor plumbing found it's way into this place is still there and will stay. Someday I will finish it!
