We've seen a lot of great advice here on AT on how to repaint and refinish surfaces in your home, like laminate countertops, kitchen cabinets, etc. And while the advice has been great, if you still don't feel quite confident in your own DIY skills but still need a major makeover, why not use a company that refinishes surfaces? If you're in Austin we've found one...
Painting your countertops and bathtub isn't easy, and while some have attempted both with success, if you are facing a particularly daunting job or just want to see what it might cost to have someone professionally do it, try NuSurface, here in Austin. They offer a number of refinishing surfaces, from painting laminate kitchen countertops, painting old or damaged bathtubs and even re-veneering cabinets. While it's not as affordable as actually doing it yourself, some projects could be more affordable refinished than replaced. It's certainly worth investigating, especially if you're in Austin!
What do you think? Would you ever pay someone to refinish a cabinet, countertop or bathtub? Is it worth the price to pay someone to make sure it's done correctly? Or would you rather take the gamble of tackling it yourself?
