A SOAK OR A SIT?


Upcycling takes a colorful spin when Ruff House Art turns old cast iron bath tubs into lounge-able art.
Check out this clever creation here.
Have an amazing weekend, everyone!

Well, you know, I'm just not sure about this Anne. Really kinda different and growing on me a tiny bit as I type. If I had a bath & bedding boutique, I would think that would be so fun, but not in my house. Oh gosh I'm totally showing my age here....oh well.
Have a beautiful weekend Anne.

Upcycling - there's a new term for you! That's a pretty cool concept - love the fabric.

Reminds me of Breakfast at Tiffany. Makes me smile.

Very cool. You could do this in a blue and white for a porch!

Good conversation piece...doesn't look like one could curl up on it with a good book... like the color..

Sherry said...

Wow, this has turned up, everywhere! I think it's amazing, but I think it is destined to be the piece that never sells. but gets a lot of press.

Yes, I just saw this loveseat (?) in the movie Breakfast at Tiffanys last week. Every time it came on camera I tried to be sure that it was indeed a bathtub!
Best,

This is so funny - I don't think I would ever have the heart to do this to my claw foot tub!

This is probably the most clever use of an old tub I've ever seen! : ) have a great weekend!

Don't know about the comfort level but I am in love with the fabric and that big fat welt!

Beach House Living said...

Oh my goodness so that is where our bath tub went!

My Dad got us one and we used to sit in it to talk on the phone. It was filled with pillows and it was just the neatest.

DolceDreams said...

Great minds think alike...i also had this bookmarked to post about! Not quite sure how I feel about this one, but it is certainly creative!
Have a wonderful weekend,
Nathalie

So unique! :)

Alexandra Rae said...

I saw this and instantly thought of an old never pub'd post I had on Breakfast at Tiffany's set. She lounged in a similar tube painted pink with a zebra rug. Divine. I should post it. Maybe I'll add this photo. It is Tiffany blue ;-)

That's kind of cool but is the back comfy?
