My soaker tub is set up identically to this. Instead of my wrought iron shelf, I would love to do a built in. I've also been torn with beadboard vs. tile for the front of the tub. Turns out I love the beadboard and its cheaper!
Has to be the cutest toilet paper roll holder I've ever seen! Wonderful for a rustic/country bathroom. Made from a twig with a perched bird on it. Great idea for a DIY home improvement bathroom project.
