Bathroom Shower Sign In/Join 
My house was built in 2001 and my shower has that brassey/gold surround...I can't afford to replace it so I was hoping there was some type of metal product I could use to change the color to may a nickel look I've already changed out the faucets in the tub, sinks and the shower head to nickel.

If it is just a shower door (sliding or hinged), I would simply remove it and hang a shower curtain. A bowed shower rod in nickel finish will give you a bit more elbow room, and if you still want a shower door, you can shop at your leisure for a good price on one?

I can sympathise with wanting the color change but I don't know of a way to change the color without replacing the metal. Painting MAY work but I have my doubts; the water gets to it. You might be able to find a self-adhering metal film that will work; you can do a Google search and see what turns up. Not sure that would last well either, but I give it a better chance than painting.
