Step 1

Use 60- and 80-grit sandpaper to sand the bath. Then use finer 100-grit sandpaper to smooth the surface. Wipe off any dust or moisture.

Put down a drop sheet to prevent your floor from being messed with paint or spray paint.

Step 3

Mask around taps, outlets and edges.

Step 4

Mix the two components of the Rustol Tub and Tile Refinish Kit together, according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Apply the first coat of paint with a mohair roller, and allow the first coat to dry.

Step 5

Apply the second coat. Let the paint cure for three days before use. Mask off tub feet with painter’s tape.

Step 6

Apply the first coat of Hammerite metal paint on the outside of the tub. Allow the first coat to dry. Apply a second coat. Let the paint cure for three days before use.

Step 7

Mask off around tub feet. Evenly spray paint the tub feet, and allow to dry.
