I knew when we moved in that this house, had a lot of things I wanted to change. Our master bath has got to go!! (even our arctitect said it was one of the weirdest/ugliest master baths he had seen) and he’s seen a lot! The master bath however its way way far down on the list. So I took matters into my own hands and decided to paint the tile. It wasn’t too hard to find the tile paint I needed, there are a ton if you look it up on line. I decided on zinsser primer and then crossed my fingers it would work.
The first step is to clean the tile! and I mean clean!! get out the rubber gloves and really scrub it up. Don’t leave any soap build up or scum anywhere. Mine was pretty easy to clean because it is a surface that doesn’t get too wet. I don’t think I would ever try this for a shower or counter top. And I would never do this if I didn’t know I was ripping this whole thing out in a year or two.
I think it turned out great, its not a perfect fix but for now a few dollars of paint and a few hours of time have made the biggest difference in my bathroom. Its so much lighter and brighter. I can’t wait to paint the walls a soft sea foam green in a few weeks. Then I think I will be able to live with it for a year or so and dream about when I can get my free standing soaker tub, double vanity, quarts counters………..
