Yes, a porcelain bathtub can be refinished, but should be done by a professional during the warmer weather. The chemicals used to refinish the tub are extremely dangerous on the respiratory system. The bathroom has to be well ventilated.

We had a porcelain tub refinished in our second 3-bedroom home.

Check out the Habitat for Humanity ReStore; used building materials for at least half price (usually more). I've found brand new items that builders have brought in after working on a project (it's cheaper for them to claim the charitable contribution on taxes than to try to reclaim money by selling it themselves). You can usually find a tub for the same price you would waste at a big box store on refinishing spray that likely won't work.

We've had our reglazed, but by a professional. It's not a DIY project, as there are lots of chemicals involved. It's only about $350, though, so compared to buying a new one and having it installed, it's a breeze.

I hate people who post references to product without giving the make and model of the product is simply useless. Saying I bought it at Home Depot/Lowes doesn't help. Have any idea how bad customer service is at these locations and how large the stores are?
