Yes - absolutely! Refinishing is THE VERY BEST way to go to avoid tearing out a perfectly good bathtub that just LOOKS bad after years of use. Go to the link below for some before and after refinishing pictures of acrylic tubs.

I would strongly advise that you consider replacing it. They are very inexpensive. Some are less than $200.

Although you may be able to buy a bathtub for a few hundred dollars, you cannot REPLACE it for that same amount, because in the process of tearing out the old tub, you will incur major costs for plumbing and tilework, which will be affected by removing the tub.

Hard to tell if this answers the question because the poster asked "can I spray paint" -- not "can I hire someone". In other words, are there products available to the homeowner that are worth bothering with? I've seen kits at home stores that sound dangerous to work with and may require skills beyond a DIYer for satisfactory results. Getting a good bond and durable finish are issues.
