Blue Bathtub - Ugly, blue tub.

We bought our house over 30 yrs. ago. Take a look at the picture below and you will see why it's difficult to furnish a bathroom that has a blue tub. We are not interested right now in refurbishing the tub so I keep the shower curtains closed. In order to line the tub or make any changes, the tub would have to be pulled out and a plumber would need to do repairs. Besides painting the tub, does anyone have any suggestions?

Hello carolbee. Did you know that your can give your tub a new color and not have to replace it? Lowes has a kit for about $45.00 to $60. Here is a lonk for you to look at. http://www.refinishingonline.com/diy.htm

I knew there was a way to paint the tub or buy a kit to change the color. Thanks so much for sending the link.

The tiles need replacing also as they are off white with tiny, gray sprinkles. The whole combo is pretty funny. Thanks for responding.

Well Carolbee, blues and greens are EXCELLENT colors to decorate the bathroom! Paint it in various shades of blue and green to compliment the bath. Get a shower curtain with a tropical ocean scene in it. And voila! Rather than thinking 'ugly tub' you will probably be thinking "What a peaceful and soothing bathroom I have!

Have you been at my house? lol We did paint it green and bought a greenish shower curtain that matched the green paint. It looks horrible after we also had the bathroom carpeted. So I bought a white curtain and it looks better. Thanks so much for your suggestions and responding.

I will trade you. We have a golden colored bathtub. I would take the blue over gold any day of the week.

Golden is pretty but maybe not as a color of a tub. Sounds like we both have interesting bathrooms. Thanks for responding.
