Upstairs Bathroom Shower Curtain Track

The upstairs bathroom has gotten filthy during all the construction. We installed a temporary door, in order to keep dust out as much as possible and also to discourage workers from using that bathroom. Yeah, that didn't work out so well. We might as well have left the door off. Anyway, even though there will be a significant amount of dust generated from sanding the wood floors, yesterday we decided to clean up the bathroom as much as possible. The wood dust shouldn't be so bad...
While I cleaned, Bryan partially installed the shower curtain track (he just has to go back and replace the temporary screws with permanent ones). We ended up getting a track system from Curtain Fair. It is mounted flush to the ceiling and allows for the shower curtain to run continously. The oval shaped shower curtain rods all had support stirrups hanging from the ceiling and, even though the Myson circular shower curtain rods were wall mounted, their diameter was too small (since we wanted to utilize the entire tub area for baths AND showers, oval shaped was optimal).
Once the track is permanently installed, the shower curtain can go up and we can then, FINALLY, use the shower! Joy!

That's a great solution for the clawfoot tub. Ours was pretty tricky to install and pricey too!
