Good Question: Cover my stainless shower?

Hello AT,

I'm moving into an apt with a stainless steel shower stall. Is there anything I can do to cover it up? Both inside and out.

Dear Dan,

It looks like you also have a stainless sink and cabinet to the right of the shower. While there are lots of paints out there for covering bathroom tile/ countertops/ etc., I think I'd go with the stainless. The paint can scratch and look even worse. And the stainless has potential! I'd first tackle the sink and shower with Barkeeper's Friend. That will get the paint drips and waterstaining off of the stainless surface. I'd then replace the shower curtain with a clear one on ball-bearing hooks. Is this a rental and, if so, are you allowed to paint? If you are, maybe a very light grey blue would look good with your stainless steel. I'd then accessorize with cool and simple pieces and a few warm items in wood. Maybe a teak bath mat? Think spa. Anyone else?
