In Builds and Remodels, DIY Projects

This is the 2nd post about our bathroom remodel. For more information about each step of this process, click here.

Our first project in our bathroom remodel was an updating of the shower stall.  Our shower stall is big at about 5 feet wide, 6 feet tall and 2 1/2 feet deep.  We considered replacing the shower stall, but thought we would try an epoxy paint first.  The fiberglass floor and walls were not damaged, but there was one screw hole (who screws a hook into their shower wall anyway) that we had to fill before painting. We have attached a video link at the right that walks through the supplies we used and the steps we took to prepare the shower to accept the paint.  Well-done prep work is the key to this product lasting a good length of time. The other video shows the state of the shower after one coat of epoxy paint had been applied.

The product we used is Rust-Oleum Tub & Tile Refinishing Kit.  To complete the job, we used two boxes of the Rust-Oleum kit. We already had on-hand the other supplies that we needed, so the total cost of this job was just over $50.

Check out our “before” and “after” pictures below.
