Cast Iron Bathtubs

Have you ever had a bath in a big ol' cast iron bathtub? I can tell you that if, not, you are missing one of the most wonderful experiences of life.



There is something about the iron that hold the hot water, so you can lay in the warmth longer than in a traditional tub.



They tend to be deeper, so that in the summer time after a long day of hot yard work, a cool bath feels like a swimming pool.



I found this old fashioned wire soap hanger in one of our outbuildings. I didn't do anything to it but clean it and hang it.  Unlike modern tubs that have an indent to place soap, this little puppy really keeps the soap dry with no slime on bottom.



I put some of my favorite old pictures on wall so I can lay there and look at them.
This tub is long. So long, I can stretch out, unlike most modern tubs.



And, yes, it does have some discoloration. It has the original finish, so some discoloration is normal. It must be 100 years old.



If you get the chance jump in a cast iron tub. You will not want to ever get out.

  2. I love the vintage look that cast iron baths have. I have a friend who has one in his home, and it looks really good. They add style, class, and they are super comfortable to take baths in. I can't wait until I'm a homeowner so that I can have one in one of my bathrooms.
