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.

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 239 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looks great and was a whole lot easier than I imagined. The most time consuming part was preparation, actual application only took a couple of hours total. So far it looks great and seems very durable. So much easier than having to change out an old tub worn down to the cast iron and definitely a lot less expensive. If you take your time and work on getting on several thin coats you should have no problems at all with this product. Just make sure you prepare the tub properly and protect surrounding surfaces, oh and wear a mask and plan to spend some time out of the house till the fumes aren't so strong. I found also that there was more than enough of the paint to do my regular sized tub 4 times. August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tuff stuff Renovated a house that had fire damage in the kitchen ! Bath tub was rightover the fire damage! Refinnished thebath tub with refinishing kitfrom rustoleum ! Just a bit of advise, spraying the will get you better results ! Although rolling it on did level it out nicely! You cant expectit to be tuff as tub glaze ofwhich is a given,but itis tough! Only problem we had is suction cups on bath mats will pull coating off bottom after a wile! Permanent peel and stick bathtub mats will remedy this! 2 years of daly use so far with 2 adultsand 2 children and it is holdingup nicely after the peal and stick permanent mat was instuled! Very happy for what it is! July 16, 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.. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by If this stuff lasts it will be awesome. Shiny white tub now - bathroom looks great! Be sure to do ALL the prep - twice! The painting only take a few minutes. Oh, and wear a do-rag, a drop of perspiration in the bottom of the tub makes a blister. An N95 mask or better is absolutely necessary no matter how much ventilation you have. For under $30 this bathroommight sell the house for us. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Product Ever Directions were easy to understand,after following them I was able to completely remodel and repair my fiberglass tub. Husband was doubtful and he expected to replace tub for $1000.00 and another $1000.00 to have the new one installed. But for only approximately 50.00 It looks great and ready to use. Thank-you for this wonderful product. Easy to use, took longer to sand than to paint! April 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good I completed this project myself, a 30 year old DIYer, in 3 days. I spent several hours of 2 days on prep and on the 3rd day completed the painting. So far it looks great, 3 days in and having not used the shower yet. It is white, shiny and looks like new. The finish is rock hard. A few words of wisdom I wish I had known: You will always spend more time on prep than you think! Removing all of the caulk, peeling paint, cleaning with 2 products and sanding the whole thing twice (due to more peeling paint) took around 8 hours total. Purchase at least 2 kits if you have a tub colored different than white or are doing any tile around the tub. I had a white tub and blue enclosure around it and used 2 kits with 2 coats over all and a third coat on the bottom of the tub and some spots that were still blue tinted. They are serious about the smell... I've never had a product smell so chemically. I had the window in the bathroom open and every window in the house open, and fans on and it still made my bed sheets and clothes smell so bad they still smelled after washing once! Not much I can recommend except to seriously open all windows and take breaks to go outside. I got dizzy even with a mask and the windows open and fans on and had to walk outside twice. Lastly, DO NOT put a fan blowing on or near the tub. I started with just open windows and once I got halfway done and realized how strong the smell was I pointed a fan to blow out the bathroom window which is in the middle of the shower. The bubbles that develop on the surface will stay if there is blowing air on them because it dries too quickly. The 2nd coat I turned that fan off and had much better results, really smooth with no bubbles. The foam brush they recommend for corners did nothing for me. On the second coat I used a regular bristles brush and had MUCH better coverage than with the foam. Didn't leave brush marks at all. Overall I give it 4 stars because it seems to be a really great product but to do it right is a LOT of work! And smelly work... :) April 26, 2016
