I did a search for bathroom refinishing here on the forums, and came up with someone using a product called Homax's Tough as Tile to whiten their bathroom fixtures. I know someone else on the forums a couple of years ago found another combination of products to whiten and clean their bathroom, and people have also painted their fixtures successfully. Our bathroom was kinda beyond redemption, for the most part and we had dreams of relocating it originally, so we trashed it and started from scratch. It IS a lot of work, but we like our results so far. We didn't move the toilet, but did relocate everything else. A con of starting from scratch is that everything is expensive: tub/shower bases, especially. You might want to do some research if money is an issue before you trash your current bath. We had to do a lot of thinking about how to route pipes, and we're still puzzling over how to accomodate the curve of the back wall and still cover the pipes and make the rear storage area work. Chris has put the bathroom on the back burner for awhile.
