DIY Painted Bathtub

I just finished painting my bathtub a couple of days ago. I used Rust-Oleum Tub & Tile Refinishing Kit, and it's still curing (you're not supposed to get water on it for three days), but the paint seems very durable. Of course, it IS paint, so it won't last forever, but I think this is a very good solution if you want a somewhat easy fix for an ugly, outdated tub, and don't quite have the budget for a complete replacement. More details (including a video) at the link below.
Time: 8 Hours Cost: $125.00 Difficulty: Medium

    To be successful the pre-cleaning process must be through. I have seen it be successful and I've seen it peel away and be awful. I think your tub looks brand new and I hope you will be very happy with it! Do let us know how it holds up as it is a solution many of us would love to use if it works for you!! :)

    We use the same thing the 1st time and a different kind the 2nd time and the Rust-Oleum held up better. We just wish it was a spray paint instead of a roll on.

    I used this product on my fiberglass shower base. I had scrubbed the protective coating right off of it in a few years time. The result was black marks all over it . Yuck! It was hard work . You must follow the instructs to the letter. And always do 3 light coats. It has been 3 yrs and it is still perfect!
