    Tile paint? Has anyone ever used it?

    I'm looking at revamping my kitchen on a budget and wondering if anyone has ever used tile paint and if it was any good.

    yes iv used tile paint. it makes the tiles look like new after but its very hard doing an even coat. you may get streak lines and uneven coverage because of the shiny smooth surface of the tiles. my advice is to do very very light coats and build up. :-)

    ermm not too difficult start at the top of the wall with very very light coats... then move down getting rid of any drip lines. then after a couple of hours apply next light coat and repeat!. ull be fine lol. just do the usual prep.. cover up places you dont want to get paint on. good luck

    theres an undercoat you can get for tile paint, sholud help. also, if you can, get some masking tape the same width as your tile grout, put it on before you start, peel off after and you still got white grout, use one of those grout pen things to clean it up if you have to
