Sheets of corrugated metal (available at most Home Depot stores) make a stylish tub surround. After removing the plastic tub surround, cut the galvanized sheets to fit and finish the panels with Rust-Oleum Crystal Clear Enamel before screwing them in place. To prevent leaks, use self-sealing roofing screws and fill the seams with metallic caulk .
