Old shower


Is there a product to paint a shower. It's a fiberglass shower from the 80's. Good condition but old. My husband loves the seat in it so I don't know if he would let me put a new up to date on in

Yes. ...and pretty soon someone will come along and tell you what type, since I do not know the exact name/brand. I've seen many painted though, so I know it can be done.

Not so much. Between the amount of water and the amount of scrubbing showers and tubs get, there really isn't anything DIY that will hold up. Even the companies like Rebath or whatever that come out and do it for you have a delicate surface that may or may not last.

Edited to add: You can now find DIY kits in the apron stores to refinish your bathtub. Something like this may work, but getting a professional looking finish would be difficult, and the longevity is questionable at best.

I thought of that. My husband sprayed bed liners. They come in all colors and very durable. We even covered the inside of our jeep wrangler so it would never rust. I'm just not sure if that would be a good selling feature when we move.

If it's that old of a shower, just put in a new one before you sell.
