Egad that is an ugly ass bathroom lol. I love those. The change is so dramatic, it doesn't even look like the same neighborhood when you're done - let alone house.

The tub is getting refinished in white. Theres still a ton of them around here. I pulled a nice yellow and black one apart not too long ago..
Just curious...why would you have this tub refinished? Can you not get a new tub cheaper?
I understand refinishing when the walls are good but it isn't going to last anywhere near as long as a new tub.

I replaced the studs and reinsulated the whole thing. To refinish cost approx $500 and the tub was 3" shorter than standard. No way I can demo a cast iron tub, dispose, and have my plumber install a new tub for that. Only bath in the apt. Down time for the whole thing was only 2.5 days.
