    If not done correctly, it will chip and peel. There really aren't any bad things to say about it. It's inexpensive. It's a project where you have complete control as far as color and sheen. There's no tear out mess to clean up. No dry wall to repair or replace. And treated right it will hold up indefinitely. I know because I painted the tile around my tub and my vanity which was a laminate sink top about 3 years ago and it looks as pretty today as it did then. My next project is going to be the floor tile by my front door.

    I used Zinser 123 primer. I painted with latex paint. And I put 3 coats of MinWax Polycrylic on everything. I used white latex paint so I didn't use polyurethane because over time it will yellow.
