HOW TO UPDATE A TILE SHOWER & TUB IN A WEEKEND

A shower is sometimes the ONLY place we can get a few precious, solitary, quiet moments.  It can be a short time of zen and relaxation at the beginning or end of the day.

And that’s a big time bummer.  That was what was happening in our bathroom.  The shower and tub were absolutely functional, which is great.  They were just a tad, well “nude”.

Tips for Using a Refinishing Kit to Update A Tile Shower and Tub

Do not pass GO before you get yourself a GOOD project respirator mask to use while tackling this project.  And take LOTS of breaks while you’re in the midst of the process.

1. Protection

2. Preparation and Cleaning

There is a lot of cleaning prep work to do before you start.  Since I’m not a fan of preparation usually, I was tempted to skip some steps.

 The product is sticky, but goes on with a regular old paintbrush (that you will have to throw out after completing this project). 

3. Application

You can still see shadows in the middle of the tiles, and one spot that looks like we just missed it the first time with the paint, but overall, a pretty good covering for the first coat.
