painting bathroom tile

I painted my bathroom tile. And it looks great...and worked great!! I wish I had tried it earlier!
my bathroom tile was in good shape. It was just tired, old-fashioned, and...beige.
with a couple coats of paint it is fresh and modern!

    You can buy Rustoleum Tub and Tile kit from Home Depot online. I think it’s for 37.00 ? To use on your tub/shower. Because it’s constantly hit with water. You can use regular rustoleum on wall tiles outside the tub/shower area. Sometimes I just paint old shower plastic liners with oil or enamel based paint and it works great!

    To clean shower walls w soap scum. I use Ajax and a sponge scrubber or light grit sandpaper and clean what I can, rinse, dry with towel - then paint.

      the liner I’m talking about is a thin, solid sheet of plastic that comes in 4’ x 8’ sheets and people use it to surround the walls above the tub instead of tiles or prefabricated tub/shower surrounds.
