    This looks very much like the sofa that Holly Golightly had in her appartement in Breakfast at Tiffany’s…

    Did anyone else mentally yell “Aaaaahgh” when they saw the side cut out of this wonderful cast iron tub?

    When I was a toddler the house I lived in had an old clawfoot tub that I spent many prune-wrinkled hours playing in. It was like having an indoor swimming pool.

    To me, these old tubs are a treasure. They represent a past when fixtures in homes were built to last longer than 5 years.

    I appreciate the value in converting something of little use into something of greater use but this repurposing makes me cringe :)

    that was the first thing i though of when i saw this.

    i’ve been thinking of doing the same thing for a while now. but i htink i’m going to use a non-footed tub on a pedestal to spread the pressure across the floor. my current apartment doesn’t have a single floor that is level, it’s kind of fun rolling marbles and watching them arc.
