In our modest little farm house, all 5 of us have had to learn to share one bathroom. Up until 3 years ago, our one and only bathroom was honestly smaller square-footage-wise than the back of my pickup. When we remodeled the basement, we then moved the girls down there and transformed their bedroom into a very spacious bathroom that accomidates more than one person in there at a time. I am one of those people that absolutely love soaking in the tub while reading a good book, so I knew I was not going to skimp on my one luxury I was being granted. When I told the carpenters that I was going to have them put 'old tin' on the walls behind the tub, they gave me that "Are you crazy?!" look. After considering they were getting paid good money to do what I asked of them, they stopped asking why and did what they were asked. Upon completion of the remodel from bedroom to bathroom, one of the carpenters told me in his words "We've done a lot of bathroom remodels and I have to be honest with you, I had my doubts about your ideas, but I will admit now that this bathroom is by far my favorite." I did give the 'old tin' a refreshed look by giving it some color with a mixture of wood stain and concrete stain. I think it matches the tile quite nicely!
