I put a faux finish on my ugly, old, mustard yellow bathroom tiles, including the sink.

first cleaned the tiles. 2. put grout into places where needed. 3. used latex semi gloss and natural sponge to create the faux finish. 4 covered the tiled area with several coats of polyurethane (water based ) 5. caught the area around tub. It's holding like a charm, taking showers, splashing water on it and cleaning it. Just make sure the polyurethane is covering EVERY AREA of the tiles.
Looks like brand new, and it's so simple.
From ugly mustard yellow to faux finish
including the bathroom sink
just don't use abrasive cleaners on the polyurethane finish
