Rust-Oleum Tub & Tile Refinishing Kit Review

Before and After Tile Rust-Oleum bathroom remodel

Rust-Oleum Tub & Tile Refreshing Kit Review: There is something to be said about the gratification that comes along with DIY projects. A year ago my family moved into my grandparents home built in the early 60’s. We are slowly but surely working on remodeling each room. So far the bathroom remodel has been the most rewarding.

Before Bathtub

I will be working on a full remodel story but for now I want to show you my biggest money saving find. Rust-Oleum Tub & Tile Refreshing Kit was so much more than I expected it to be. You know how much an new tub and shower inclosure can cost! We are all about giving the less expensive route a try first before we spend a bunch a money. You can get this product at Home Depot for $25.97.

Rust-Oleum Tub & Tile Refinishing Kit

Rust-Oleum Tub & Tile acts and looks like porcelain and ceramic. You can apply it to ceramic, porcelain or fiberglass. It’s so easy! You MUST wear a mask unless you want to act goofy for a couple hours. My friend Jenni and I had some great laughs while doing this project.

The tile looks brand new. I can’t tell you how much I loved doing this product. This is not a paid ad, we paid for it and would recommend it to all. It’s fast-drying, indoor durable and corrosion-resistant.

After Rust-Oleum

Included at the bottom of this is Rust-Oleum’s Youtube video on how to use this product. I should note we did everything they instructed us to do on the back of the box. There is some cleaning prep before you start, make sure you do that to get the best results. It is important to do 2 coats in order to get a beautiful new finish.

If you decided to give this product a try we would love you to post a before and after picture on our Facebook page.

How has this held up with regular use?

Great! There is a small amount of chipping, but it’s been almost 2 years so I say it has held up awesome!

I have been very tempted to do this in my 1980’s bathroom. The tub is yellow and the tile is yellow speckled, not quite the look I want. My question is…has it held up? How long has it been since you did it? Has it peeled or flaked off? All the information I’ve seen has been from people who have just finished their project. If you get this message, please respond.

I did my tile in July 2016 – There is a small amount of chipping. I plan on doing another coat sometime in the near future. I would say for $25 it has held up amazing. My other option was buying a whole new tub and redoing the tile. I saved a fortune!! I love the product!

Can this be used on ceramic floor tile or filtered marble?

I used this product on my tub and had leftovers, so I decided to do my ugly brown fireplace surround and tiles right in front. It hasn’t had much traffic (other than some pups), but it has help up really well so far. I did it about a year ago and it still looks great.

I used this product about a year ago on my tub and had leftovers. So, I used the rest on my ugly brown fireplace surround and ceramic tile on the floor right in front. It hasn’t had much human traffic – just dogs – but it has held up really well so far!

I used this product for the shower base. the prep is crucial, so expect to put the most effort into that. Once the two parts are combined the product is usable for about 1-2 hours, it’s starts to thicken and becomes more difficult to roll smoothly. So there may be waste if you don’t finish within the allotted time. It came out great and saved us ripping out the base, installing a new one, it’s now about eight months and looks just as good as the first day.

Can I use this over a previously treated tub?

Did you have sliding doors on your tub? If so, how were they removed and the holes filled in before refinishing the tub and tile?

Hello! Could you tell where your shower curtain is from? Looks soo nice!

We recently used this product on our ugly beige shower tile and acrylic insert. It looks amazing – like a brand new shower!! We had to use two boxes to cover the shower entirely – two coats is a MUST. And I agree that you need to follow all the prep work that is listed on the box.

Should I do a new floor before or after painting. Thanks

Forgot.. do I need to fix any caulking first.

We just moved into a 80’s style mobile home we are remodeling and there is a huge GREEN corner shower and bath in our bathroom. I want to do this to lighten and brighten it up. Problem is, it is our only shower….did you wait the 3 days before using????

Yes, remove all caulking prior to using this stuff.

Any suggestions on removing old paint on tiles before applying this?

Will this work on “tumbled” tile? The tile that has a uneven texture.

I used this product about a year and a half ago on my tub and the initial outcome was great. I followed prep to a T, but sadly, after about a year it has begun to completely chip off. I would need to strip and do the whole process again and since it was such a task, I will not be doing again.
