Transforming your home can be a costly and frustrating endeavor, especially when it comes to bathroom tiles. Replacing them is such a hassle, you might consider pretending to really love the outdated design that even your grandmother would call old-fashioned.
Thankfully, there's a simple solution that doesn't involve destroying your home and starting from scratch. Simply paint over it! Okay, it's a little more complicated than that, but not as much as the alternative.
The original bathroom was definitely holding onto the past for too long.
Yeah, this is definitely screaming for a makeover.
The supplies you'll need:
XIM Tile Doc, a paint roller, a paint tray, Comet cleaner, foam brushes, a face mask, latex gloves, sandpaper, caulking, and painter's tape.
Start by deep-cleaning the whole area, then sanding everything down with waterproof 400-grit sandpaper.
After that you'll need to remove the old caulking, tape off your fixtures, and prepare the paint.
Use a sponge brush for the edges and the grout, then go over the whole thing with a roller.
Allow to dry and repeat as necessary.
Then let it sit for at least three days before showering.
