I have a bathroom which used to be 6 different colors. I have replaced tub, sink, toilet, painted like crazy but there was still the walls. Melamine - painted over and over and really disgusting. So I tried the tub refinisher and I think it's a winner! Really hard to "paint" with epoxy but I'm really liking the result! The old is the pink. The new is white and has come out gorgeous! Two more walls to go...

This made our sink and our entire bathroom look SO much better. Defineitly make sure you follow directions and that your coats aren't too thick. Don't rush the process. We let it dry for 4 days before even touching it to make sure it had completely cured. I have a ton left over and am thinking about doing our tub as well.

After spending close to 6 hours meticulously prepping a salmon colored tub and shower, I applied the first thin coat of this. The salmon bled through, which I did not think was a big deal. I waited the three hours for the first coat to set and started the second. The second coat pulled off the first coat in spots and apparently, it takes more than two coats to cover a salmon colored shower and tub. The brush strokes are very visible, this paint did not level itself at all. I Think that this product is a waste of money and not worth the effort to do the prep.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Elgato Waste of time and money, product did not set
I had to send my family out for a whole day while I refinish the shower, the vanity and our kitchen sink. I used 2 containers for the process. This product is very sticky and it is impossible to get an even coat. I followed the directions diligently. Took me at least 8 hours cleaning and prepping. I removed old caulk and sanded the surfaces. I used a brush as stated in the directions and tried my best to apply 2 thin coats. It was hard to work with, the product was too tacky for thin application. The worst part is that after 4 days, I checked the shower stall, it was not set yet, then the kitchen sink which when I touched it, it seemed already completely cured so I thought it will be okay to use but when I started to use it, the paint softened. it got scratched up and it felt sticky again. I am letting it dry for a few more days hopefully it will fully set.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DEstefan Ok, not great but ok
I got this 26 oz. White Tough as Tile One Part Epoxy Brush On Kit because I read in the reviews of the spray kit that the fine mist is a huge problem.
The pink 1950's bathroom tiles had to go and we didn't want to spend the money and effort to actually replace the tiles, so we decided on this epoxy paint instead.
We prepared the surfaces carefully and applied 2 thin coats of paint as directed. They call the paint "self leveling" which means it is very thin and hard to apply on vertical surfaces without getting runs. After the second coat the pink still showed through the paint. So we waited 3 days, sanded and applied a third coat.
It looks ok, not great, but ok. One can clearly see brush lines and the pink below still isn't entirely invisible. Also, 2 weeks later the paint still has a bit of a soft feel to it. I'm glad we didn't try it on the floor tiles and stuck with the wall. Eventually we may replace the tiles after all.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bunny Re review of this product
i recently wrote a scathing negative review of this product. In all fairness I have to change my rating to good. I had to withhold the last star because it is very tricky to administer.
On the first application I over applied the epoxy and it just would not dry. For two weeks it was still tacky. After a month I sanded it over and it was still tacky. I sanded it as best i could and let it set for another month and then started to redo the mess. It works!
Apply a very thin first coat wait 72 hours light sand apply a second very thin second coat light sand wait 72 hours light sand apply a 3rd coat. Walla! It is hard and durable and looks great.
The spray version is easy to apply and doesn't last too long and leaves an awful overspray odor

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChuckH 5 and 4 star review
I'm a very hard reviewer and long winded, so bear with me, but here's my opinion of the product. If you are super fussy or where you are using the product has to be perfect, this may not be for you. We have an 84 inch sink with a side vanity that is 40 inches. The sink is off set, so when you see countertops listed, they have the sink in the middle. I bring this up so you understand my valuations on the job. We guessed we'd need to do a custom sink and then side vanity, I estimated a price of close to 1000. Reasoning being a 54 inch marble was 650. Now for the product, we bought at Home Depot but you can find multiple places, we were getting paint anyway. We decided that we'd try the product and worse case scenario live with it until next summer and do the replacement if necessary. We followed directions to the letter and all was good, but we had blueish streaks showing the brush strokes after the second coat. A bit unhappy. My guess was reading directions might have been the problem, too thin of coats. We were gonna live with it, but after two days I decided I'd re do the process again, thinking a couple months. I called technical support and the person said just wait the 72 hours to cure, sand with 220 sandpaper to rough it up a little and put a third coat on was okay. While this meant 3 more days of no sink off our bedroom, we have two others, so decided, why not. Well here we are 24 hours after the third coat, 48 hours to put the room back together and we are very happy with the look. The final coat covered, but as others have said, brush marks do show, but not bad.. since this is our bath off the master and with our grooming items that normally sit on there, we're okay with the look. Makes. The bath 1000% better. So the brush stroke is why quality got a four star, but 70 dollars versus 1000 make the. Value excellent. I included buying two new brushes and draping plastic paint tape. This is why I said depending on which bath and how picky you are. We love it, the look is great. Make sure it's a day where you can have open window. And use fans, get a good mask, I think it would give you a headache without protection

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Moose13 Difficult to use and won't dry.
Went to Home Depot to purchase the Rustoleum Model # 7861519 and found they do not sell it in the stores. Salesperson directed me to this product. First this product recommends brush-on which is crazy trying to get a smooth finish. Plus it lacks a separate hardener that you mix in like the Rustoleum product. Well 2 weeks later my tub is still tacky and I'm wondering if it will ever fully dry. To make matters worst this one costs $10 more. Why Home Depot would stock a product in its stores that LESS THAN HALF ITS CUSTOMERS WOULD RECOMMEND is ridiculous.
