Recently I had a client that was faced with this:
Please, if you love chickens don’t send me hate mail. I love chickens, too. When they are laying eggs. But not on a tile backsplash in a home that lends itself to a more contemporary style.
First thing is to really clean the tile with rubbing alcohol. Don’t use Windex or anything that might leave a residue.
Use an all surface primer like Zinsser Bullseye 123. This stuff really stuck to the tile and gave great coverage. I did two thin coats about an hour apart.
I always wrap a plastic bag around my paint tray. Undo the tape and turn the bag inside out – cleanup done!
This is after the primer coat. Next up was base coat color:
Could I resist a paint called Burlap? No, I could not.
I had a stencil kit from when I painted my table skirt in my workroom. We originally wanted this pattern, but then realized that we needed the reverse so that only the outline was painted.
Luckily, this pattern was just right to add some interest without overwhelming the space.
It added just the right pop!
So if your tile is outdated or a color that doesn’t fit your home any longer, you can paint it to give it a fresh new look!
Go and have an awesome week!
