Interesting article. An excerpt from Painting Tips from the Pros on Painting Bathtubs and Tile:
Depending on the surface area to be refinished and the amount of repair that’s necessary, a typical tub and tile refinishing job might cost about $1000, Pistor says.
What do you get for the price tag?
Better results. Pros are highly trained, and they have access to better materials than you can get at a big-box store. Miracle Method, for example, uses a blend of fast-drying acrylic resins that bond tightly with the tile surface. Epoxies designed for home use do not bond as strongly, so they won’t last as long — they’ll likely need touching up or redoing in a year or two. Miracle Method guarantees its results for five years, although Pistor says that a life expectancy of 15–20 years is more typical.
Where I disagree with you is that I generally love the colors and style choices of BPF. I'm thrilled with many of the rooms in this bungalow. I would just put the MCM pieces up for auction as quickly as possible. For people who do like that style, I think the items he chose would be very desirable.
For me, Goodbye living room sofas and hotel lamps and that chandelier. Goodbye dining room chairs--the item BPF said was probably his favorite find. I get that they are indeed lovely for MCM sensibilities, but I personally wouldn't want them in any house, let alone a Craftsman.
"And there’s a new twist this time. Ulrich said whoever wins the Ann Arbor bungalow doesn’t necessarily have to claim it. They could take a cash option instead, which would be $350,000."
