claw foot tub feet repurposed

I've seen others re-use old feet from a claw foot tub in some interesting ways.
I've seen them used as bookends, brackets for shelves, doorstops, etc.
So, I've been on the lookout for a pair to use around my house.

I found several on the internet, etsy and at local antique shops.
Those were either expensive ($30 per foot, $80+ per pair), not my style, 
in bad condition or a yucky color.  

A few weeks ago, I finally found a set for me.
FOUR RED CHIPPY ONES!
for less than the price of one at other places.

Where did I find it?
I don't know who runs this shop but I like some of their stuff and their prices.











Can you believe these?
I wonder what the rest of the tub looked like.

  18. A great and unusual find. I have never seen feet on their own before. Love the chippiness. Growing up we had a huge bathroom (just one for 10 people though) with a clawfoot tub. My mom painted the tub lilac and even painted the nails on the clawfeet. Thanks for your kind comments on my fall decor posts.
