Tile Painting

Last year I took the wallpaper down in the bathroom and painted it. I wrote about it here and here. One thing I never got around to was the painting of the ugly green tile. It was way too big of a project to replace the tile, so painting was the answer...and a much less expensive option.
 I bought a special primer to seal the tile, and then I was able to paint it as I wanted. I got the primer on when I did the rest of the bathroom. Since it was white, it didn't really bother me that I hadn't finished painting it.  But it was finally time.  I'd procrastinated long enough.
 After 4 coats of high gloss white paint, it's finished.  It was more time consuming than I thought it would be.  Trying to get each tile looking nice was very tedious.  Even though I was using a foam brush, I still had problems with the brush strokes showing.
Now it's on to the next project.

The painted tile looks great, Lynn. Looks like new tile on the picture and it's a great improvement!
