Vintage black painted ball-and-claw foot bathtubs

They say, you should always have something black in your room to ground the eye. Well I think these black ball and claw footed tubs do more then just ground the eye, they are show stoppers. Something about painting vintage tubs black just adds to the elegance and ups the chicness (is that even a word?) of these bathrooms.

I love the idea of placing an oversized mirror behind a tub. Not only is it
elegant, but it also makes a bathroom feel taller and larger.

I like how colourful and playful this next bathroom is and all it took was some fun colorful towels, a cute tassel covered pink and white blind and that beautiful floral wallpaper. With such a classic vintage floor tile, the black ballfooted tub and white wainscoting you have the perfect bones to create any style bathroom you choose. It`s as easy as repainting or rewallpapering the walls and choosing a different blind and accessories. You could easily transform the look of this bathroom over a weekend.

If you like the wallpaper, here`s a link directly to it:

Check out the legs on this last tub, aren`t they gorgeous?
