Pretty Tub – Pretty Difficult Tub

Perry Bathtub

This slightly-scooped, free-standing bathtub is aesthetically pleasing. But if you’re a paperhanger tasked with wallpapering the 9′ high walls with tricky-to-paper windows behind that tub, it is a bugger bear!

Normally, I protect the tub with padded moving blankets, and then lay a piece of plywood over the tub, and put my ladder on top of that. But with the curved edge of this tub, that would not work. Luckily, my ladder fit into the tub, and was tall enough that I could reach the top of both walls.

So much for the top of the walls.

I still needed to affix the wallpaper to the bottom half of the walls.

Squeezing my body down behind the tub, and squirming behind the floor-mounted faucet, and trying to move my arms and hands so I could smooth and trim wallpaper between the tub and the wall, well, that was an adventure in itself.

I’m glad I’m small. That’s all I can say.

But – We got ‘er done! 🙂
