In Response To: Updating wall tile and vanities (Maria)

Maria,

Changing the color of wall tile and vanities is work for someone with practice on refinishing glazed surfaces. It's tough for a homeowner without a good deal of practice to expect good refinishing results when dealing with 'shiny surfaces'. If the tile and sinks match and are in good condition.. try changing everything else that is easily changed, trying to compliment the existing tile colors, but changing the overall look.

Otherwise, you might consider hiring a professional to do the refinsh work, or consider replacing the offending or damaged tile work with new.

Most people can't buy a kit and paint stuff on and make it look nice. But.. If you are patient, do some research, and practice... it is VERY possible.

Good luck!

Don
