Every year I have a huge dilemma – what do I get my dad for Christmas? Actually I struggle with gifts for most everyone because I want it to be something the person wants and will be useful.
This year I made him something I felt he would use – my mom’s idea actually. See, my dad has a claw foot tub and he takes bath ALL the time.
I took a pallet and cut it down in between the cross pieces.
Then cut down the 2x4 down to the width of the tub. I nailed it all together with finish nails and sanded it like crazy.
Finally I put a coat of stain on. It sits pretty well on top of the tub. I imagine my dad with use it to watch movies, sip hot chocolate, and eat pie. Seriously, he loves his baths!
