CHEAP Bathtub Makeover
I don't know about you, but I love when I find a solution to a home design problem AND it is super inexpensive. My bathtub is one of those projects that would have cost thousands to replace, but I was able to update it for under $10!
Here is the BEFORE of the tub.
I first measured the dimensions of the bathtub front and had the hardware store cut a piece of masonite to those measurements.
Then I created a pattern. I was very technical and used a large oval platter to make the center design and 2x4 for the other details. 😉 (This is my favorite jigsaw: HERE)
Once I had the design how I wanted it, I used a jigsaw to cut around it.
I double checked that it fit. You can see how the design turned out in the above photo, and a more in-depth of how I made the design HERE.
Then I painted it white and used a bathroom grade caulk to adhere it to the front.
(My bathtub has a "lip" and I left a small gap between the masonite and floor, so I've never had any trouble with water.)
