Can you paint a bath?

We've got a pink bath in our place and I hate it. We've had people say you can get a bath re-enamelled but I wondered whether you could DIY. Could I paint it myself? With what? How would I stop it chipping off? Thanks, Luke

Welcome to Workshop @LukeBrowning.

 

This is a D.I.Y. project you might like to tackle. The following video should have all the information you need.

 

Hopefully other members of the Workshop community might also like to share their thoughts and advice.

Re: Can you paint a bath?

Hey @LukeBrowning, i've never attempted to paint a bath myself but i've seen and heard some good reports. In a previous place I rented you could tell the bath had been repainted as there were some minor chips and the original green underneath was exposed. The entire house had had a makeover and you could tell it was done on the cheap so i'm assuming the effort put in probably wasn't at its highest. I wouldn't discount painting a bath as an option but i'd definitely take the time to do it right and ensure the correct coating is applied. Great way to really enhance the appearance of a bathroom!

Re: Can you paint a bath?

Hi Jason, do you know if can you tint the bath paint, or does it need to be whatever “white” it comes in the can as? I’m keen to refurbish a bath but not sure I want that super white look, so was wondering if you could add some black to take the edge off? Thanks Craig

Re: Can you paint a bath?

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Craigloft. It's great to have you join us and many thanks for your question.

 

There are two products that we stock which are suitable for painting bathtubs: Rust-Oleum Tub And Tile Refinishing Kit and White Knight 500ml White Tub And Basin Paint. Unfortunately, neither of these products can be tinted. The Rust-Oleum Tub And Tile Refinishing Kit is available in a couple of other colours that can be special ordered into stores. The Rust-Oleum website shows the other colours available.

 

We look forward to hearing more about the projects around your house and garden and would encourage you to let us know if you ever need assistance or would like to share them with the community. I trust you'll find loads of inspiration within the community as our creative members are sharing their own projects here every day.

 

Please let me know if you need further details or had questions.

 

Mitchell
