I painted my plastic shower

I went at Home Depot in Canada and found a paint for bath. This is a spray can. They are probably 15$ each and I spent 200$. But my shower 1999 is now brand new. After one year, still as white and no cracks. I have 5 childrens and we spent 3.5 months in the motorhome.

Company: Rust-Oleum
Name on the spray can: Tub & Tile

I covered the whole bathroom with newspaper to protect. Took three days for all the layers.

What is funny is that everywhere I went they told me I coud not paint a plastic shower. But trust me: it is easy, and the job is perfect. Just apply a thin layer and wait an hour for another one and put many layers. If you make a mistake, use sand paper to correct between two layers.

BtW, I painted the ceilings fans, the neon lights, the switch on the walls, the electric 120V outlets.

And with a different color, I painted chrome my lights over the table and everywhere.

Sorry for the delay, I have no excuses.







I painted many months ago before the winter. We are seven and took showers each day in it for 1.5 months in Florida. There is no cracks anywhere, no peeling. Seems good for ever.

I was able to fill previous holes with silicone, then I painted over it and sanded it. Nobody could guess there was some holes there.

When you make a mistake, you sand it. Very easy.

I unscrew the soap holder and paint it separatly.

I am no artist. I can not even draw.

Before, it was completly yellow due to sun after 15 years.

J'ai peinturer ma douche en fibre de verre avec une peinture Home Depot. Très simple. Il faut donner plusieurs petites couches. Cela fait une bruine et il faut donc tout protéger autour. On peut sabler entre chaque couche pour corriger les petites imperfections. On peut donner plus de 10 petites couches, une chaque 45 minutes ou plus. Facile de peindre sa douche. Aucune craquelures même après des mois et beaucoup de douche prises.

The shower and the metal (or plastic) shower head and attachment look great. You mentioned that you painted light fixtures too.......I assume they are metal? What color were they before you painted them?

It was gold plated. Since this is no more à la mode, I went for silver. In fact I painted even the electric outlet. Everything looks brand new inside.

Some fictures were in plastic so I painted them in white. The one in metal I painted them silver.

In the shower, I changed the shower neck (don't know the english word) and the hands for the water.

I should show pictures of the walls for the whole bathroom. It is simply fantastic. I will try tomorrow if I have time. I use 12" false square of small tiles. Chose long and thin one to make it look bigger. Cost 300$ for the walls but so beautiful.

My wife is used to live and a big and beautiful home, I have a lot of pressure to make it look good even if I don't want to put more than 35k in total on a motorhome that should last 10 to 15 years.

Was the silver paint you used on metal the same Rustoleum Tub & Tile?

I took Krylon Colormaster from Home depot. This is a spay can. Metallic, Silver. Metal, wood and more. Dries in 15 minutes so it is very easy to work with it. You paint and in one hour you screw it back.

Any metallic paint for metal and wood should do the job anyway.

The last picture show you the new floor. The floating one is over the whole motorhome. The ceramic is only in the WC.

My plan is to make a motorhome nearly as good as a new gas one. Washing machine, dryer, ice, 2 door fridge, 50A, Inverter, 2 batteries, full led, new brakes, tires, new shocks, new floor, new wall paper, new inside everywhere, new big tvs, new fireplace, etc. Total planned 35k$Can.
