We have a really ugly BLUE plastic type bathtub/shower. The color does not match anything. Does anyone know if there is a special type of paint that you can use to paint it? Or will we have to bite the bullet and buy a whole new shell? We are first time homeowners on a tight budget so I would hate to have to replace it if there is no need. It is in really good shape, we just hate the color. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Screw in a red light bulb and you'll have a violet coloured bathtub.

They make a paint for just about anything. Proper surface prep and application determines the durability and appearance. You have to decide what's best. 6 months down the line when the paint starts peeling and flaking (and it will) Do you want to buy more paint and keep sanding and painting? Bathfitters is an alternative, but they are probably compareable in price to having the old one taken out and a new 1 installed. A half decent steel tub is less then $100.00
