Instead Of Replacing All Your Old, Outdated Bathroom Tiles, Just Do This Instead

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 Replacing them is such a hassle, you might consider pretending to really love the outdated design that even your grandmother would call old-fashioned.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.

See, that isn't so hard! And the gorgeous result will make your space feel so much better.
