Answer: 
I originally bought two for painting the tub and tile surround. It looked ok but I bought one more just to get that even solid white coat. I'm so pleased I did. Three boxes was well worth the money. It looks so great it's hard to believe I ever had a blue tub and pink tile surround.

Do yourself a favor and purchase two kits. You can return the second one if you don't use it. Rust-Oleum says that this will cover two coats on a 110 sq. ft. tub. My bone colored tub measured 75 sq. ft. and one kit was NOT enough for two coats.

Answer: 
It's paint, so it will change the color-but be aware it will NOT LAST. this paint will start to peel very quickly. (as noted in my review) Are you willing to take that chance??. Also do read the manufacturer instructions. Best Regards.

Yes, this will change the color. Since the original color is dark and you will have to do a minimum of 2 coats, go ahead and buy two kits. You can return the second kit if you don't use it.

Answer: 
It sure will. I used it on my 1916 Kohler clawfoot tub. Make sure to prep the surface well. I only used this on the inside of my tub, one kit allowed me to put on 3 coats.
I prepped the surface by stripping off some paint, then I sanded the inside with 110 and 220 grit paper until any chipped areas were smooth. I washed the tub a couple of times and before painting I wiped it down with a TSP solution.

I washed the tub a couple of times and before painting I wiped it down with a TSP solution. I used a foam roller, the small one, after the coat dried, I did have a couple spots that had some bubbles, I sanded those with 400 grit wet sandpaper then wiped again with TSP before applying a second coat, then repeated the process once more.
Good luck with your project!

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 245 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really Good Product As with any coating, surface preparation is the key to make this product work well. There are a lot of steps but it is necessary to get proper adhesion. Also, you must pour the activator into the paint can, put the lid on and shake by hand for a couple of minutes. This will ensure proper adhesion as well. The most important step is to not use the tub for at least 3 days. I went on vacation for a week after I finished so I got 7 days to let the coating cure. I used two cans to put two coats on the tub and tile surround. I cut in the edges with a quality brush and used a roller for the rest. I am extremely satisfied so far but it has only been one month. It seems to have a durable finish though. The only slightly negative thing I have noticed is the tub is pretty slippery but that isn't something a bath mat can't take care of. I'll try to remember to post an update after 6 months of use. July 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Peel on the spot that I prep and prepared the most. Followed instruction but peel within few months. Peel on the spot that I prep and prepared the most. Followed instruction but peel within few months. Did all the preparation following the instructions and the place that is rusted I prepared the most but today that spot peeled first. That is the only spot that is peeling off the tub,... not yet the other... I do not want to buy the kit again just to paint over that spot. Rather spray paint it but the Rust-Oleum 280882 Specialty Tub and Tile Spray Paint is pretty expensive June 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far, so good It's only been six weeks, so I can't speak to how well the product holds up, but it's made a huge difference in my bathroom. My bathroom tile was a dated and dirty blue and pink combination that no amount of scrubbing could spruce up. Now it looks clean and modern. The smell is very strong, but tolerable. I had a mask I ended up removing because it was annoying and I could work without it. I'm not giving this 5 stars because I needed to purchase another box after two coats of paint didn't completely cover the colored tile. October 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by What a waste of $$$ I purchased a cheap mini roller kit for this project. The mini roller kept falling apart with every stroke. I tried a brush, but did not like the look. I finally gave up after doing about 1/4 of the bathroom tile. I sealed the can, wrapped it in plastic to save it for the next day, as I would have to go purchase another roller kit. Upon opening the can the next day, the paint had turned into a gummy/gooey paint. The instructions on the can says that it can be used on the next day! Had to discard about 85% of the paint (more like gum). I will now have to purchase another kit - when it is AVAILABLE ONLINE!! If you do intend on using this product - make sure you use it that same day. October 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Did A Good Job I covered old blue bathroom tiles with white Rustoleum Tub & Tile Refinisher. It gave a high gloss finish that looks very good and totally gave my bathroom a new look. Do not skimp on surface preparation as that is the key for proper results. Also, the recommended coverage area of 1 can is underestimated. I used 3 cans when the recommended coverage area said I needed 1 and a half cans. Its better to have more for an additional coat than to come up short. I used a 6" sponge roller rather than nap rollers. I'd recommend to anybody. October 11, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worked well It works great, but would suggest you use whatever you need within 4 hours, no later, because it will start to get gummy and goes on gummy. I suggest putting it in 1 container and another container to hold that container, otherwise it goes everywhere, including yourself, which is the dickens to get off. I went through 5 boxes of this, and it worked pretty well, but make absolutely sure you wear the ventilation full mask, especially if you're sticking your head in a tub or shower, and DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT use a fan unless you have an absolutely clean floor; otherwise any dust flying around will get on what you've painted. It did take 4 coats of one particular tub and one set of tile; works great on stand-up fiberglas tubs (again, wear mask!), worked great on countertop tile, but tape, and more tape. October 18, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cheaper than a new tub Well, decided to try this instead of buying a new tub and surround. Old one was biscuit, we wanted white. I will say prep work is everything, a few areas didn't get roughed up enough and the paint refused to stick after multiple coats. That's my own fault. Also, the paint will eat pretty much any roller you use. First coat was with a foam roller rated for "all paints". It ate pieces of the foam up and left them in the paint. Fair enough. Used a short nap roller the second coat. Again, halfway through the fibers were falling out. Third coat, used foam rollers again and replaced them every couple minutes. Worked ok. All in all this saved me a fair amount of money but after seeing the finished product with pieces of foam and fibers everywhere, I should have just replaced the tub. The amount of prep time (if you do it right) will take about as much time as pulling the tub out. Not even joking. Just spend the money and replace your tub. October 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very Disappointed! I finished remodeling my bathroom two months ago. I refinished the tub and retiled the bathtub wall. It looked good. Within 2 weeks the refinished bathtub started to peel. I examined the tub today and it's peeling in several places. I follow the direction that came with the product. Now I have to strip all the white tub and tile paint off of the tub and refinish it again. My options are 1) purchase a more expansive product and redo the tub again or 2) Higher a professional company to reglaze the tub. or 3) Tear out the tub and install a new one complete with new tile. I can't believe that Rustoleum sells this defective product. It's a major black eye to the rustoleum name brand. Home Depot needs to do the responsible thing and NOT sale this product anymore..
