I have just moved into an 50 old house that has a green enamel bathtub. Is
there anyway to paint this thing and if so what type of paint could I use.
I asked this question earlier, but did not mention it was enamel. Got a lot
of answers, but still looking for a solution.
IMHO, if the enamel is in good shape, learn to live with it, and count your
blessings that you have a 'real' cast-iron tub, as opposed to a modern steel
or plastic one. Others on here will disagree, but I have never personally
seen a field-refinished tub that looked 'right', and the consensus seems to
be that under daily use, the refinish doesn't last very long. And unless you
are a rich person, you don't get cast iron any more.
If you simply can't stand the green under any circumstances, I'd go with a
tub liner, assuming you can take the tub being slightly smaller. (although I
understand they are not nearly as bad as they used to be, that way.)
