our new home came with a claw-foot tub in the master suite. It has some light stains on the bottom of it,due to age. I would like to keep this one instead of buying new. Does anyone know if you can have them refurbished. If so is it cost effective. The tubs I found on line that would be close to this one range from around $ 900.00 - $1700.00 (ouch) we are upgrading a few things in this home that is 25 years old,and trying to do as much as we can without going crazy. The tub and the main wood stove are two area's we want to improve on. Thanks for your help.
