Question Refinishing an old bathtub


First of all, thanks for a wonderful forum!

Next, my husband and I are moving into an older home next month. There is a pedastal sink with matching tub (not a claw foot, it's all enclosed to the floor). Right now they are a pastel lavender color, which is OK, but the inside of the tub is in really bad shape and desperately needs to be refinished. I'd like to keep the existing tub rather than replace it, but how do I go about properly refinishing it?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

CraftyCook, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
This subject has been brought up here many times. Seems that the answer is that it is not a DIY project. There are kits to do it but most who have are not happy with the results whether it be immediately or a few months later. Even professionals (or those that claim to be) charge high prices due to all the work that has to be done and the chemicals involved. Watch this post for more answers and good luck with your project.
