    Now that my new walk in bathtub is in, I have been doing a lot of cleaning up. The bathroom is now done, made a huge dent in the stuff I had piled into my living room over the past couple of days, and am currently working on my entry room. The dust is horrible, it's everywhere lol. Some is from the construction with the new tub.
    Once I get it all done hopefully no more sneezing fits.

    And then you'll have to debut your new room to us!

    Have you done a new "quilt" for the bathroom? quilted shower curtains? window curtains? Hope so!

    Renos can drag you down, unless you "Keep your eyes on the prize"!!! Here's to a successful finish!

    No quilt for the bathroom, my entry room or as I call it the tile room is almost done - has a tile floor. Taking a Hershey break lol.

    Am trying to do the cleaning a little at a time so I don't overdo. It's a lot, but gives a golden opportunity to weed out the stuff I no longer use.

    What a great tub. I need one as I can no longer get in and of my roman one. It is showers all the time and with my RA I need to soak. You are very lucky. Enjoy.

    Use white vinigar in the water you are using to clean with. It cuts drywall dust and makes it easier to clean. That what I did when we remodeled. Plain water turns it to paste and it is harder to clean up.

    LOVE you tub. I would like to have one for us so we could walk in. Both seniors here so I think it would be a lot safer.

    I have only used it once, made a difference though. I can now get in and sit where before I could not in a regular tub due to knee and ankle problems.

    Very nice tub. Getting harder for me to climb into our tub to take a shower, big step.

    Thank you, I like being able to walk in and sit. I have a walk in shower, but not the same when I needed the jets that this tub has.

    I'm looking at one of those walk ins for our bath.

    As for getting in and out of her tub I bought my Mom one of those bath chairs that straddle the tub edge. She sits down and swings one leg at a time into the tub sliding her rear as she goes. Than she can stand up to shower. Just reverses getting out.
