    There are resurfacing kits for tubs and showers which would work in porcelain sinks, too! I’m thinking of doing mine.

    The following comes from a professional refinisher:

    "...repair the chips and cracks, before sanding down the repairs to match the old surface. Our process also offers results that porcelain DIY repair kits, sold in hardware stores, can’t. In fact, it’s almost impossible to create a smooth new surface with the paint brushes and rollers that are used with these kits. Aside from that, there are also some safety issues. DIY kits come with a porcelain etching primer that is dangerous without the proper safety equipment and training.

    We find these kits to typically be a waste of money and we’ve undone their damage in countless homes. If there’s one thing that’s clear, it’s that proper and durable porcelain sink refinishing and repair requires expert craftsmanship.
