Abington/ Weymouth Ancient Soaker

A couple from Weymouth gave us a call that they had an old soaking tub in their basement that was in pretty bad shape, and they wanted us to refinish it for them. This was going to be the eye-catching piece in their newly refinished tile bathroom. They put the tiny tub on their front lawn, and Mark went to pick it up.

“Thank you so much New Look for taking such an old item and giving it new life! I am so excited to showcase this unique tub in my home!”
