Updating old tile

If however you’ve decided you just can’t live with those old-fashioned bathroom tiles any more, there are some cheap and cheerful methods of bringing your bathroom into the 21 century.If you’re greatly improving the appearance of the bathroom, chances are the landlord won’t object either.Well, I am here to show you a bit more of the progress we have made! That eliminated the possibility of ripping it out and replacing it with something else.Are you dying to know how I decided to deal with the UNFORTUNATE backsplash in our kitchen? We thought about covering the tiles with stainless steel, or even stenciled wood, but the existing tiles are so thick, we could not come up with a good solution of how to finish off the visible edges if we covered them. Meanwhile, we were trying to decide whether to stain or paint our kitchen cabinets.Like the ground outside or the very principles of gravity, a floor is something we often take for granted.It’s solid, flat (hopefully), and covers the whole room…that’s pretty much all we need from it right?

I got 3 different pint size cans (you can buy the pint size cans on Amazon and some woodworking store) in 3 different shade of gray.

But after seeing countless home tours and renovations, it’s clear that floors are a huge part of what determines the look and feel of a room, for the very reason this it uch a huge continuous expanse.

Browsing through our archive of Before & Afters, I came across so many wonderful transformations, from budget friendly paint jobs to full refinishes in wood and tile.

This specialty epoxy paint product is recommended for tiles that have a high glaze finish, and where oil-based paints will not properly bind to the surface of the tile.

The only limitation to the use of Rust-Oleum Specialty Tub & Tile Refreshing Kit and other epoxy paint products is that they come in a limited range of colours, but the colours that are available are ideal for most bathrooms.

We gave the stained brown wooden mantel a paint makeover in white as the first step and it made such a huge difference to lighten and brighten our living room!
