Exciting, re-inventive and limitless colour options. Painting the outside of your claw foot tub is a lot easier than you many think.
Once you clean the surface, you need to get a primer coat
down as soon as possible. This is particularly true with a sandblasted tub. Exposed cast iron can begin to show signs of surface rust within hours of exposure.
We recommend having the claw foot tub feet sandblasted. They have so much detail that is so difficult to clean out and the results are almost always worth the extra effort to find a sandblaster. Again, make certain to get a primer coat on them as soon as possible to prevent rust from starting.
Find the colour you would like, we recommend using Aura
for best results and durability.
Sarah Richardson is a queen of colour, you gotta love the way she pulls colour from accessories and fabric. This yellow is perfect for a fresh country bathroom.
If you aren’t ready to go wild with colour, try the ever classic black.
As seen in Urban Country Style, “Feel free to have fun with vintage pieces. In this bathroom, an old claw-foot tub was juiced up with orange paint for a more contemporary feel.”
Choosing an unexpected colour for the bathtub is refreshing, buy a few towels in that colour and it will tie it all together.
Pulling colours from your wallpaper is bold and sure to work.
