Copper Leaf Tub

Get the look of a copper bathtub for less.

Instead of purchasing a copper bathtub, paint expert Annie Sloan covered the outside of her enamel roll-top bath in copper leaf. Copper is a very warm, rich colour and emits plenty of light because of its shiny quality. To soften its appearance, Sloan used Florence — a coppery green paint — underneath.
