Got an old shower or bathtub and looking to refinish it? In this video, I tested out the BathWorks Tub Refinishing Kit to see how it would work in my 1970's turquoise fiberglass shower stall. Kind of a long video, but I wanted you to see the entire process that went into this DIY refinishing project. Watch the full-tutorial for detailed instructions on how to paint your shower (or bathtub) and how to get the best results. Read the blog post for more details. AD
