I have a cast-iron claw-foot bathtub and I want to repaint it & install it in my new master bathroom. The inside of the tub has a couple of rust areas. Any ideas on getting rid of the rust spots (never to be seen again) then painting the tub (i.e., type of paint). Thanks!
There are some paints available on the market, but they are meant for application over a tub in good condition. Your best bet would be to call a company specialized in bathtub refinishing. They will fix the rusted areas, and re-enamel it so it will be as good as new. This process is more durable than paint, because it is done with specialized tools. I even think you can choose your color, or simply have it painted white.
