How to Paint a Ceramic Tile Kitchen Backsplash (And How It's Held Up)

When I redid my kitchen about three years ago, I painted my kitchen cabinets white. The tan tile backsplash just looked wrong when I was finished, so I decided to replace it. Before I started the demo job, though, I thought I'd experiment with painting the tile to see if it could be done. I painted them white, and three years later, I'm reporting on how they've held up. SO much easier than replacing the backsplash!
Time: 2 Days Cost: $20 Difficulty: Easy

    Love it with the painted tiles. Great savings for the look you want. Also, in our former home I painted the exhaust hood too with great results. Mine went from aluminum to the same off-white as the appliances, cabinets and wall color. It blended in

      @Debbie Dement Thank you! After this redo, I'm not sure I ever want to paint cabinets again! :)

    You banished the dark finishes. The kitchen looks so much more friendly and inviting. Enjoy.

    It's funny how trends bounce back & forth..... for a while it was dark warm & cozy, now it's gone to bright & light. I like either one. Looks great, you did an awesome job! :)
