charming house: painting fireplace tile

goodbye 80's pink-purple tile
who chose this tile?
ugly!
used some frog-tape to outline it

first coat: glidden gripper grey


last coat of martha stewart cement grey in level 2 high gloss
did two coats of the cement grey

will i paint tile again?

probably not!
i felt that this was like a last ditch effort 
to lose the 80's tile
without putting in the work of re-tiling it all
maybe in a few years i will get to ripping it out
but for now i am happy

living room reveal pics to come

  6. Great post. I run a small painting company based in Nottingham ( www.nottinghamdecorators.com ) and we often paint tiles. It| always amazes me how effective painting old tiles can be. Keep up the good work.
