Cast iron baths are becoming more appealing as the years go by, with people opting for them left and right. Many people are looking to add that traditional atmosphere to their bathrooms and match their baths up with the designs that are present already. Redecorating work is something that everyone likes to undertake every now and then, and the bathroom is no exception to this rule. While adding a fresh style to the bathroom, people often want to repaint their cast iron bathtubs to match it.

Refurbishing a cast iron bath can be a fun job and isn’t as difficult as one might think. Just like any other decorating project the quality of your finish is dependent on preparation. The first thing to do is to prepare the surface by using emery paper to sand it down. After the sanding is finished, degrease the surface, allowing the degreaser to dry before moving on.

Before applying the paint you’ll have to use a metal primer to prime the bath. An oil-based metal primer is generally the best choice. After the primer has dried, apply a coat of oil-based undercoat and paint it using a soft, yet high quality brush to get the smoothest results possible. Once the undercoat dries, lightly sand it using some 120-grit emery paper and then add your preferred top coat.
