Can I paint a vinyl backsplash?

KateV SmithJudyH


I have an older trailer. I'm updating kitchen. The backsplash is vinyl wallpaper. Can I paint it? Thinking of using high gloss mould resistant paint. Dont know what else I can do. Cant remove it without damaging. Afraid of any heavy products too. Any ideas?

    Clean it well. Prime with Kilz primer then paint. Being primed any paint will work.

    Do yourself a big favor and don't paint over wallpaper.

    Make sure that you prime with a primer rated for vinyl. You might also like the stick-on vinyl backsplash, it has the look of glass tiles.

    Thanks. I've used peel and stick before. Because its a seasonal trailer with winters pretty cold, I didnt think that would stay on very long. Will try painting first. Thanks again.
