Some photos of the bathroom tile painting

I'm just going to do a pictorial blog post tonight regarding our tile painting experiment.

In a nutshell, it's worked far better than we ever, ever expected.

In my next blog post, I will go into some more detail about the whole bathroom makeover, particularly if you are contemplating using tile paint as a renovation option.

For now, you can just have a quick squizz at the nice fresh bathroom feeling that we are currently enjoying.

The white tile paint has completely covered the old tile border feature. You'd never know...maybe...

New ladder towel rail

I bought a new resin soap dispenser bottle. And love that it is so plain.
Remember to read the next post where we tell you our thoughts on tile painting and show you more photos.

  2. Anita, it looks fantastic! So glad you did it first so you can give me all the tips. Betsy has a tiny extra toilet and shower that are on par with your bathroom before shots so it gives me hope to see that without major expense I can make it look gorgeous. All that white, bliss. mel x

    1. Thanks so much Tove. Yes, we are very lucky to have such colourful windows in these old Queenslander homes. xx

  5. It looks great but my favourite bit is the towel ladder. We have too many towels for a rail so this might be the solution. Is yours just a plain hang it on the wall one?
    You've done a lovely job on it.

    1. We had a ladder rail in our last place which worked well. And it's just the plain old one ie not heated. You'd probably need a couple though for your brood, Annie. xx

  6. Since I watched the progress of this tile paint I have completely changed my tact with realestalking! Instead of thinking "needs bathroom gutted, will be horrible living with it until we can afford it" I now think "We can paint the tiles white like Anita did! And then gut it and install a new bathroom". Haha. So now I have even more properties to mull over! I die!

    1. Oh thanks Rosana. We thought this would buy us some more time before we decide on the final bathroom design and also to save the money to do a full reno. xx
