Rust-Oleum 7860519 Tub And Tile Refinishing 2-Part Kit, White

u/greyGoop8 · 6 pointsr/DIY

Tell your pops I used this stuff on my tub and it came out nice.

  • Gross
  • After

    Couple tips: The directions say to use like 400 grit sandpaper, screw that, I tried that for almost 20 minutes and it wasn't doing a thing. I went down to like 150 grit. Real rough stuff. And it gouged the surface right up. I would periodically wipe the dust off with a damp cloth, then dry the surface and start sanding again. I think I sanded for just over an hour, taking a lot of short breaks to catch my breath since it was a pretty good workout. Once most of the gloss was gone and it was pretty well gouged up I applied the epoxy. People in the reviews complained about the vapors from the epoxy. So I setup two fans, a box fan blowing out the window and another fan blowing right at my head (the toilet's at the perfect height for this ;-)) And I felt completely fine breathing normally. It's been about a year and it's holding up great. Though we have babied it, just cleaning it with soap and water and a soft sponge, but it stays clean fairly easily and still looks great. Highly recommended easy DIY job for an old tub.

There are special 2 part epoxy paints that are used for this.

We used this paint to refinish a green bathtub, and it was easy to apply, and looked great until it started to scratch, peel, etc.

It is super smelly and requires proper ventilation and a respirator type mask.

I've had good results with this, and it's waaaay cheaper than hiring someone: Epoxy Refinishing Kit

u/hollaburoo · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I just did this, and I used this:

Basically, it's a 2-part epoxy paint which you brush on (they also have a spray paint version). It comes in 3 colors, white, almond, and bisque.

It'll take a lot of prep work, you basically need to clean the entire bathroom several times over, and scrape off all old paint and such from the tiles. It also smells really bad, I had to take breaks every 5 minutes, and that was with a heavy duty rebreather mask. It will probably smell worse for longer if you go with the spray paint version.

It came out quite nice though, and it seems to be holding up well.

I used two kits of this on my dark pink tub about a year ago and it doesn't show any wear yet.

I realize it may begin to wear eventually - but we will probably sell the house later this year. If I knew I was going to be in a house for more than ten years, I'd go for professional resurfacing - but for my purposes the DIY worked great. Just be sure to ventilate and follow the directions to a T. Read the amazon reviews and understand the process before you jump in.

Good luck!

My fiance recently did our toilet and tile with no experience. We did take a free tiling class at a local store. It was a nice hands-on class and they gave us 20% off of all of the equipment. Borrow equipment (float, trowel, mixer) from friends and family if you don't plan on tiling again in the future.

We bought a really nice Toto toilet from for less than $200. There was free shipping and no sales tax. My dad has purchased two toilets from them (both Toto) with no issues.

If you can't afford a new tub now and the issue is mostly cosmetic, Rustoleum makes a tub and tile paint that works pretty well. I purchased from Amazon here. It's a good way to put off the really large purchases (tile and the needed supplies can be expensive). To give you an idea of cost, we tiled the floor of a 30 sf room with high-quality tile and it was over $400 for the cement, mat (we used the mat instead of backer board), grout, tile, and supplies.

We put the tile in before placing the toilet. We didn't replace our tub, but there isn't any tile under it, it just goes up the edge and there's a line of caulk.

I painted porcelain wall tile in our bathroom that was avocado green about 2 years ago and it's held up brilliantly.

I used this stuff

u/brock_lee · 2 pointsr/DIY

Get the quart can of the tub and tile refinisher from Rustoleum. Plenty there to do the required three coats on a bathtub. It's a two-part epoxy paint which cures hard and looks like porcelain, kind of. I've used it, and it's really, really good. Check the reviews on Amazon, too. If you decide to go that route, PM me for a bunch of tips. It's easy to mess it up. It does take the tub out of commission for a couple days while it cures, so factor that in.

You might be interested in this tub paint.

u/waTabetai · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I'm going to try this on my acrylic bathtub.
I have the same style sink as you in my kitchen, so I'm going to use that too. I think it's worth a try. Also, I would probably youtube a few videos before attempting it.

Edit: Seems like a few people have fixed cracks just like yours. (Check out the review pictures.)

Something like this will work: Rust-Oleum kit That's a link to Amazon just because it's easy to find on there. You can probably find a similar product almost anywhere that sells home improvement stuff. As with most any paint type thing, preparation is key. Get the tub as clean as possible and carefully follow the directions.

u/wca8819 · 1 pointr/DIY

Take a look at this stuff, worked great on making our tub look new. You can probably just use it on those specific spots.

u/kayladsmith · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

You can go to Home Depot or online and buy an epoxy finish for your bathtub, I did it for mine. You just have to sand down your tub first to make sure it’s smooth. Then you paint it, wait 6 hours, apply a second coat. And then let it sit for 24 hours. (If I remember correctly, it’s been about a year) and then it will be good as new! We also used it on a window seal in our shower to keep it from molding. epoxy paint

u/mikeofarabia17 · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

Use a 2 part finish because it will last a whole lot longer and generally be better. Something like this

u/kdmcentire · 1 pointr/Frugal

I was using this stuff: ( which requires bleaching as the first step. Just following directions, boss. Only issue is a distraction kept me from rinsing down a wall causing me to inadvertently mix the bleach still on the wall with the next step.

u/therealsix · 1 pointr/DIY

Look at this stuff, it's cheaper on Amazon but they have it at Home Depot for a little more. Works nicely when done fully and should work just as nicely as a patch to keep the peeling down. Just make sure to take out the drain cover first since the flipper might not have done it correctly.

u/HAL9000000 · 1 pointr/DIY

This stuff works well. I can't say for sure how it will work if you're only going to be refinishing only the area around the drain -- it might appear obvious to the landlord that you had to do the refinishing there because it will almost certainly appear whiter than the rest of the presumably oldish tub.

Here's the thing: if you tell the landlord, you risk him saying "I need to buy a new tub, and you have to pay for it." That might also include needing new tile too, because removing a tub probably means retiling around it. This will be expensive.

It might be best to try to use this refinishing stuff to hide it and hope the landlord doesn't notice. The landlord or you could also use this stuff to refinish the entire tub, but then you'll have a brand-new looking tub.

If you use this, make sure you first sand the areas that you're going to paint!

u/IGotYourMaam · 0 pointsr/InteriorDesign

I know it's a rental, but if you're feeling up to it, Rust-Oleum has those Tub refinishing kits for $25. Yellow tub gone.

u/Rigelface · 0 pointsr/pics

The solution.

You can tint it with colored acrylic. Paint with some of the base and mix some (blue?). No more twitching!
