You’re here because you’re curious about the history of refinishing.
Bathtubs can be made a bunch of different materials, including cast iron, steel, fiberglass, acrylic, copper, and even wood! But clawfoot bathtubs – tubs with “clawed” ball feet – are traditionally made from cast iron.
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. After a trip up the elevator the old school soaker was in the tent and ready to go.
Check out this video of Mark restoring the tub:
After it was dried, Mark took several photos and sent them to the customer. A few touch ups later and the tub was back at their house and ready for a nice soak!
“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!”
