I painted my shower tile guys! That’s right, not only have I painted my floor tiles to look like cement tiles, but now I painted my shower tiles too! Read on as I share how to paint shower tile! Click here for my Stenciled Tile Tutorial.Will it hold up you ask? Is it waterproof you ask? Well my answer is “I think so haha!” I know that’s not the firm answer you were hoping for, but I gotta keep it 100! I used the same epoxy paint product to paint my shower tiles as I used on my bathroom tile floors…which, btw, are holding up beautifully without even a scratch. This may not be a totally permanent solution for your ugly shower tiles (meaning years & years of hold up), but for now (next couple years), it will do just fine.

I know ya’ll are freakin’ out right now! Did she really paint her tile? Did it work? Is it already scuffed up? Will it chip? These are all the questions I asked myself before undertaking this DIY project. We paint our walls, our furniture, and even our concrete…so why the heck can’t we paint our tile? The simple answer to all these questions is… YES! IT CAN BE DONE! AND IT WILL STICK! I’m the girl who painted her tile!!!Have you all seen those cement tiles that come in so many cool prints?

LIST OF SUPPLIES:–Annie Sloan chalk paint in decided colors (I used Old White and Graphite) Note: I’ve also used Rust-Oleum brand with success –Polyurethane for sealant (I used a low Luster because I did not want shiny) –Foam roller and a few replacements –synthetic paint brush –painters tape -custom stencil Click here to see the stencil tile options> Mine is the Nagoya –thin craft paint brush Shop the Supplies Step 1: Vacuums and clean your floor with soap and water thoroughly. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP. If your floor has any dirt, dust, or crumbs on it the paint will chip off leaving little specks where the paint did not take. Step 2: Using your painters tape, tape along the bottom of the baseboard or wall the meets your tile. This will protect it from mishaps. Step 3: Paint along the sides where the baseboards or walls meet the tile and along the grout lines. I used the Graphite color as my base color because I wanted more black than white in my pattern. Use your favorite angled paint brush for this step. I only did one coat here. The paint took very well. Let dry 1 hour. Step 4: Using your foam roller, roll on the same paint all over tile. Make sure to go over all the spaces you already painted with the roller as well. This is what my floor looked like after one coat. Let dry 1 hour. Step 5: Repeat step 4 until your floor is fully covered and there are no light spots. The chalk paint will scuff easily until its sealed so wear socks while stepping on the floor and avoid walking on it except to paint. Step 6: Get your stencil out! I ordered mine custom, but Cutting Edge has some great options now. It’s funny, since this post went viral, they actually came out with a collection that mirrors so many of the cement tile patterns!

Step 7: Align your stencil with the corners of your tile. The outer most tips of my design came to each corner perfectly. Make sure its on strait and tape down lightly with your blue painters tape.
Why not paint your porch or patio? Check out the painted rug I created for $10! It all started with an idea of using a tile stencil to add some interest to my plain old concrete.

Those of you who have followed along my entire building process know I’m not afraid of taking a risk and doing something totally out of the norm.

Wahoo it’s week 4 of the One Room Challenge (ORC) and I’ll be sharing my master bathroom tile selections! So what do you do when designer style meets a budget? This is a question I ask myself on nearly every project I undertake. Everyone has a budget, big or small, and the goal is to find the BEST products that FIT squarely in that box… AND make it appear as if there never was a budget BOX!

I selected my paint color and painted all the bathroom walls, installed the bathroom vanity (sort of), but the most exciting progress is my painted faucet transformation! First things first, lets talk paint!
Selecting Wall paint
The current color of my master bathroom is unknown, but the yellowy-tan hybrid does not have me swooning! This color covered my entire house before I painted all the upstairs walls “Dorian Gray” by sherwin Williams. While I love that color, I wanted to go lighter and brighter for my bathroom. I had 2 colors in mind: “Eider white” (which I used in my basement), and “Mindful gray” (which was a contender when I painted my upstairs). Once I got both colors on the wall, it was an easy choice. Eider White all the way! Since my trim is super white, the Eider white actually appears to be more of a light gray.
