Love this look! What did you use to form the curved walls?

Hi Sevenreeses,

Thanks for the kind words! We created these walls from 2x6 KD framing lumber, and top & bottom curved plates made from two layers (each) of 3/4" PT plywood. (Fwiw, I laid out the full sheets of plywood on the floor, and hand-sketched the curves full-scale, until I got the look I wanted. The sheets were then stacked together and cut with a jigsaw)

If you visit my website and click on this photo, you'll see additional photos including a progress photo showing the framing only.

Thanks

You're welcome, the framing photo should help explain how they're built, but let me know if you have more questions

I am considering an acrylic freestanding tub like this, but am afraid of it looking "cheap" or "plastic-y" Looks beautiful in person but it is used in just a certain price range home?

Hi sharynkel, good question. My client and I very much like how they look, they feel substantial and well-made. The sheen is similar to that of a porcelain sink, imo. (This project used a tub from SignatureHardware.com) Pricing is quite good, considering.

For a slightly different look than the acrylic, with less sheen, you may want to consider a resin tub. They are more expensive but also more durable. Fwiw, I would not spec an acrylic tub for a childrens bathroom, as the acrylic can scratch quite easily. Not a concern with adults, most of the time at least :o)
