Paint Your Bathtub!
Well, I did it!
Here's a list of materials:
*Rustoleum Tub and Tile
*Patching Compound if you have chips or cracks, I used Bondo.
* grit wet/dry sandpaper
*Respirator - not just a mask, you need a full blown respirator, because... the fumes are awful!
*Foam roller/ paint tray
*Foam craft paint brush
The tub at the flip house had chips all in the surface.
Don't skip any steps, you need each one to make sure that the epoxy adheres the way it should.
Step 3: Put on your mask and let's paint!
Ventilate, ventilate, ventilate! Turn on fans, open windows... anything you can do. I also wouldn't want any kiddos or pets in the house either, unless they are on a different floor or something.
You'll mix the 2 part epoxy together (I did this outside in case I spilled anything). The can says you can add the smaller can to the bigger one, but there isn't much room to stir if you do that. So I used a small bucket and poured my 2 parts in there.
The box says you can use a sprayer to apply the epoxy, which would probably give it an awesome finish... but how would you make sure you didn't get it all over the walls? Too much room for error there, so after cutting in with my craft brush, I used a high density 4 foam roller.
Be sure to let the epoxy dry for 3 days before running any water in there.
Here it is:

Well, I had a window like that at my old house. I replaced the frame which I put on top of the old one so it would stick out a little bit to get a 3D effect and then bought some mosaic tile that I put over the window. The tile was transparent so it allowed the sun to come through which displayed all the colors in the tiles.

I've used a marine apply before on my tub.. its been several years and its chipping around the drain. For a quick fix I spray painted it with Rustoleum gloss spray paint. I will need to breakup the part thats cracking and epoxy it.. now that I have the time. My question is can I ose the rustled spray paint over my shower tile.
