I met a real nice older Gentleman today. The request he had for his 1950's era bathtub was, to be very honest the first time I heard it! He asked if I could do the bathtub in a low gloss look. The Bathtub had repairs it was rusted around the drain, it even had some pitting in the bottom of the tub. He wanted the tub to look good but did not want it to stand out as being new. So against all of my training I set out to give him a nice smooth surface with a low gloss as requested. I posted a couple of after pictures below. I really felt that if he would have allowed me to fully restore the bathtub it would have made the entire bathroom look better. However, The customer knew what he wanted and he was extremely happy.

Dallas Bathtub Refinishing | Merry Christmas
Hello! Welcome to another addition of Old Man Chronicals. This is were I talk about how I snap, crackle and pop after doing (4) refinishing projects in one home :) It's terrible, I mean my knees are cracking.. Back is popping... I find myself praying constantly and I mean quality short prayers like "Father, please help me up these stairs" :)
Okay, Okay ... it's not that bad yet but In all honesty I could feel it in the lower back after this Project! However, the family was sooooooo nice! Very appreciative of the work and Prettiest little dog that went from barking at me to greeting me everytime I came in the door from a trip to the truck! I absolutely loved doing the work for this family!
Dallas Bathtub Refinishing | Cultured Marble
The first bathtub I completed for them was a jetted bathtub made of cultured marble and a shower pan that was Fiberglass. These two Fixtures had the "just can't get it to look clean" problem. It happens because of surface scratches and the great news is that refinishing these fixtures, if truly refinished and not simply painted will be a permanent solution for the worn out problem. I posted the Pictures below. Dallas Bathtub Refinishing
