Bold Vintage Bath: After

Who: David K.
Where: Detroit

I moved a couple walls to give the bathroom a more functional layout and allow natural daylight to penetrate all corners of the room. Now the bathroom functions much better. All existing fixtures were replaced. From a nearby apartment building I rescued a 60-inch claw-foot tub, which I refinished inside and out, and 1880s porcelain subway wall tile, including the "egg and dart" chair rail. The existing woodwork was stripped and refinished. I installed a new pedestal sink, toilet, and porcelain mosaic flooring with detail.

Who did the work: I did all the work myself.
Cost: $1,000 to $5,000
