:I want to convert a regular bathtub in one of our bathrooms into a
:shower for occasional use without spending lot of money, I am thinking
:of using a shower curtain ring/hoop hanging of the ceiling and wall,
:has anyone done this before, I have seen lot of posts where they have
:done this using a clawfoot tub but not with a regular tub with
:drywall. If anyone has done this or see any issues with this, please
:let me know.
:The ring I am thinking of using is similar to this one..

Yeah, that looks pretty good and is similar to what one of my housemates
did on the upstairs bathroom some years ago. There's an old clawfoot tub
in there and he went up into the attic and dropped 4 very long threaded
rods down through the bathroom ceiling and they hold up the curtain
support device. He attached some hose that looks like surgical hosing to
the spout for the tub and clamped on a shower head. He also put up about
3 different shower curtains to totally enclose the makeshift shower. It
works. If you do something like that, you may not have to pay much
attention to the drywall. Otherwise, if water goes right on the drywall,
you have to make sure the primer/paint and caulking will withstand the
onslaught of water.
