    I would personally never paint vinyl or linoleum tiles....., however if you need a quick facelift and its a low traffic area and you are not expecting to get long life out of the floor, try sanding and garage floor paint.

    I painted my bathroom linoleum and it was awesome! (I say "was" because we have now moved from that house). First use TSP to THOROUGHLY clean it. Let dry completely. Sand any glossy spots and wipe dust with a tack cloth. Clean again and let dry. Prep is the most important part of the project. Then paint however you like. Coat with 3 coats of non-yellowing polyurethane. Good luck, I think you will enjoy it!
