Trying to cover this hideous tile in a Lake house that we’re going to list. Does anyone have any idea of what kind of paint will cover the plastic tile?

    To be honest, the tile is only part of the problem. I wouldn't waste time on painting the tile. Whoever buys it will probably gut the bathroom and get rid of all of it anyway. Your realtor should have told you not to waste your time and money on doing only part of a fix. Play up, the color with linens. And maybe a small, pink flower vase on the white toilet.

      Your welcome. Good luck with the sale. Here are some other thoughts about preparing a home for sale:

      Great curb appeal (bright flowers and grass cut and trimmed, shrubs trimmed, garden weeded) is very important. If it looks bad from the outside, a lot of people won't waste their time walking inside. That makes everyone think that the home was not taken care of and underlying issues could be present. Clean the exterior and the doors and windows. Make sure your front door looks welcoming, maybe a fresh coat of paint, if it's a painted one. A new welcome mat is nice. Remove all personal things (pictures, stuff hanging on the refrigerator, etc). Also remove any furniture and stuff in closets not needed and any other kind of clutter (put it storage if you have to). Organize everything left into an orderly fashion. If the walls are dark, paint them a light color (it makes the rooms look bigger and brighter). Other than some paint (neutral colors), it really isn't necessary to do any updates as the new owners may have different tastes and could possibly change it anyhow. Only fix what needs to be fixed (you don't want it to look like you didn't take care of the home). Keep everything clean so you're not running around before a showing, making sure windows are clean.. Make the beds when you get up. Before a showing, open all window coverings and let the sunshine in. Turn on all lights even on a bright sunny day, the more light, the better. Be careful burning candles, a scent you like may not smell so good to someone else . The smell of a strong scented candle could also trigger an asthma attack or appear to be covering something up. Flowers could also trigger allergies or asthma. The smell of clean or some freshly baked goods is much more enticing. And if necessary, spray an air neutralizer. When your home is being shown, remove all animals and put away their paraphernalia if at all possible. Good luck.

    Rustoleum or Homax tub and tile paint kit.

    Rustoleum has a brush on and a spray on paint for tile. It comes in several colors. It can also be used as an undercoat/primer, with basically any color on top. Even if the house is a flip, a little extra care can open up a pocketbook just a little more. ☺️
