So over Thanksgiving I worked on redoing my tub/shower combo. My roommate just moved out and it was looking so grimy. Just did the caulk, which finished it up so nicely!

Here is before...

Haha- Iím touching up the vanity top this morning too. He really managed to do a number on it... I guess people wonít treat your things the same way as you! I had used multiple coats of Marine varnish and he still managed to go right through it!

For the tub, I used the Rustoleum tub and tile kit:

I love how it turned out, even with the hiccups! Iíll be curious to see how it holds up over time!

I love it! Thanks for the link. The tile in the shower/tub in the kids' bathroom is a bit dingy. I was going to re-tile it after they moved out, but now I am wondering about doing this instead. How big a PITA was it?

UVA, itís looking fantastic! I love the vanity and the color. And yes, one thing I love about living alone is that I respect my belongings. I wish you lived close to me so I could ask you for advice. Great work!

It honestly wasnít that bad compared to other projects you and I have tackled. The worst part for me is that Iím not a patient person, so I figured I could skip the ďwait 24 hoursĒ... that didnít work 😜 Basically the prep is the longest part- you scrub with comet, then Limeaway, then sand (I used my orbital sander), and remove caulk. Then you just paint it on.

You do need a respirator because itís epoxy, so the fumes are pretty strong... and make sure to get good foam rollers as the epoxy eats through the foam fast (the ones I started with just fell off the roller after the first roll- it was ridiculous).

Holy Toledo!! The before and after is amazing. I agree with patience...not my virtue when it comes to DIY...I want everything to be completed in one day.

Seriously, I am really impressed with your skills.
