How can I paint over my tile counter tops?
I have tan tile counter tops, guess they are ceramic.. hate them and want to paint or concrete over, as don't have $$ to take out and replace. Any suggestions?
Don't spoil it - Sell it and buy something the right colour!
Here's how one person did it:
Why would you want to paint over this. First the grout is too thick and all over the pieces.That needs to be cleaned up. You will not be able to bleach out the color of the shell. Perhaps leave the shell and paint the rest of the table white, blue or grey.
Hi Maura! If the piece is just the wrong colors and not seriously damaged, I agree with John's comment about selling it and purchasing a piece you love. Someone else would love the cocktail table just as is. You can, though, paint over most anything with proper prep (cleaning, perhaps sanding, and a good primer) before painting as you want. You must have like the piece when you purchased, so likely someone else will like it as well.
here is info
I agree with trying to sell it. Check out Ebay on value and what similar sold for. If you still want to paint you will need to sand it to remove any gloss. Prime with Kilz or Zinseer primer. Then paint you color.
Would be a shame to cover that up with paint. Selling it to someone who would love the way it looks seems to be the best idea. Then take that money and buy exactly what you want.
I live in Oregon and in my small town we have several shops that sell very good used furniture for a fair price.
You can also try selling it on Facebook Market place
If you can't part with it, how about a table cloth? Or have you considered consignment?
You might consider leaving the tile and painting the grout only.
Hi Maura: To clean your mother of pearl inlay furniture, wipe with a slightly damp cloth. After some time of owning your inlay piece, if the shine comes off slightly then apply a small amount of coconut oil and white wax and clean it with a dry cloth. You can also place it in direct sunlight for several hours a day for a few days to lighten it up. I certainly wouldn't paint it :( I'd re-home it if you aren't tied to it, by selling it and buying something else.
Ohh don’t paint over it you could re grout it with fresh new grout or white wash what’s there now
