Hi Candace! We used to have a garden tub and shower (it was very stylish at the time) and our shower was too small, too. I personally love a large walk in shower with a glass enclosure after having enjoyed one at a hotel. We have a tub/shower unit currently, which takes up so much less room than the garden tub and separate shower did. The tub we had, then, had decorative panels around it which wouldn't have held up to the water from a shower, so that is something to consider. We did have fabric curtains on a curved rod that could have been used for a waterproof shower curtain. I don't think the shower plumbing would be major, with all the products available now. A temporary solution that you might consider is a handheld shower like you see made for soaking tubs/standing tubs. I loved that big tub, but, don't miss the room it took.
You can find a nice shower, but you will need to put some type of flooring down where the old tub stood. and you want to cap off the drain and water taps fro the old shower you are removing

If your garden tub has a fiberglass surround your good to go. If not I would add one of the oval shower rings, and buy the full shower curtain that goes 360 around. Many put a double shower curtain up with a clean in the tub, and a fabric outside the tub.. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_3_15?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=oval+shower+rod+ceiling+mount&sprefix=oval+shower+rod%2Caps%2C266&crid=2FXNITV0CGDL0 shower curtain on page 2
If you have drywall, most paint it a gloss enamel to repel water better as long as the oval shower rod and curtain keeps most of it off the wall.
