How can I paint an iron bath tub? And how to paint pink ceramic tiles?
- My sister in law would love it - you ought to see hers . . .Have the pros come in and reglaze the tub - or purchase a do it yourself kit at Home Depot, Lowes, etc.I have never painted bathroom tiles, so I can't help you there.
- If you can get this stuff where you are: http://www.diy.com/departments/v33-renovation-azure-satin-wall-tile-paint-750ml/1286538_BQ.prd...or something similar, I'd highly recommend it. It totally transformed my gun-metal grey painted tiles.
- Not sure about the bath tub but I too had pink tiles in my 105 year old home which I successfully painted. I used a primer for high gloss surfaces then followed with an oil based enamel paint. Worked great on the pink tiled floor as well. Good luck!
- My house was also built in 1957 and also has those hideous pink tiles in one bathroom and yellow in the other. I was going to do a half demo in the pink bathroom to redo the pink tiled shower and floor and they wanted $10k. Ten thousand dollars!!
- Don't paint the tiles! Pink tiles are really popular right now. You obviously have a computer or smartphone so go to the various DIY sites and search for pink tile - there are so many ways to tone it down and examples all over the internet right now. With the wallpaper, etc. it looks like too much - but add some grey and white, tan and white, or something to tie it in to the rest of the house and I think you'll like it. If you can afford to get a professional to reglaze the tub it's worth it. Even their jobs don't always last.
- There are many tub tile paint kits that can be sprayed on both the iron tub and tiles ,kits from any Home repair store or look online to order . The fumes to these can be pretty severe so use fans open windows etc . They work well though I'm not sure about longevity . Had a home repair guy do them and have had to touch up the tub that hadn't been used 6 mo. Later . (Redoing estate house) . The bathrooms were mauve and blue. Both were redone white . Turned out very well.Take your time as always prep work via instructions is essential.
- I use tub and tile paint spray cans from walmart on the old residences on my property. Great results. Trying out the new all surface spray paint in a lilac purple on an avacado tub. Looks good. Will see how well it lasts.
