We caulk/ re grout every 1-2 years, but it ALWAYS ended up looking like this again and again. I bleach regularly, and scrub weekly, but again it always turns this icky color again.

Tape up everything you don't want the rustoleum tub and tile paint on! It's epoxy paint...meaning you have a SHORT amount of time to paint, and it will harden quickly like CONCRETE!

On the box and video they say to have 2 people to paint. I did it myself, but I regretted it! Because they say the paint hardens in 90 min, and it does! I stretched it to 3 hours, but it was so hard!

Barely time for photos during the painting. You paint the tiles and grout. In 8 hours, apply the speckled finish. Use a roller, like the video says. I didn't do well with the brush, went on too heavy

New granite and espresso cabinets on the left . But outdated tile around the bathtub and in the shower. FYI when we bought the house, this is how the tile looked I didn't choose it myself.

Tape off areas you don't want the rustoleum tub and tile paint on. It's a GREAT product, but extremely hard to take off.

After. I will admit the almond color wasn't great for me. So I picked a taupe / gray wallcolor to go with it. During the day the almond tile color looks tan, but almost peach at night.

New granite countertop, espresso cabinets I painted with the rustoleum furniture transformations kit. Overall this product is not easy to use, but it can be done with 2 people, and watch their video!

This whole tub and shower took 2 kits. When I pulled off the tape I missed a few spots :( so I bought a 3rd kit, and took 1 TBS of paint 1/2 TBS of epoxy, mixed it, and did the touch ups.
