Best method to Refinish Cultured Marble Shower in bathroom

Just purchased a home and we're looking to give a face-lift to the guest bathroom shower. It is a cultured marble shower (not shower/tub combo) with creme/off-white color. we want to paint/refinish with white. What are the procedures for applying this new color??? What products are available for this? Many thanks in advance!!! We don't want to hire someone to do this. Cheers!

Really bad idea.
Going to be really hard to get any paint to stay stuck to it.
Live with it a while before rushing into it.
Still do not like it then save up for a remodel.

While I agree it's not a good idea to paint it, there are tub and tile paints available that might do an ok job. Prep is very important, the marble has to be good and clean!

I like Joe's idea of seeing if you can live with it a while, I don't think you're likely to like the results if you undertake this project.
