Redecorating Question

Posted by on Mar. 9, 2014 at 10:05 PM

Have any of you painted over ceramic tile in a bathroom?  The previous owner put in pink tile and since we have four boys, pink really is not the color we want for their bathroom.  I have seen a couple DIY methods online.  I was looking for opinions from people who have actually done it.

I haven't done it but I've heard of it.  Hope you get some good advice ;)  We moved in our home 10yrs ago and I still have a mauve tub in my bathroom, lol.  I don't like it but was waiting for a remodel before replacing it.

We figure it will be easier to just repaint the tile.  We do not have the time or the money for a remodel right now.

I understand that.  I'd just go for the repaint and cross my fingers but I hope someone comes along that has done this so you can get advice ;)

I had a ceramic tub done about 10 years ago...it was bright pink!!  Who does that?!  I had a professional service do it...cost about $100.  Which was far cheaper than replacing the tub.

i wouldn't even consider doing the tile myself...I mean...what about all the grout?  Do you remove that first, then paint? No clue.
