What a difference the paint makes! Very nice! I enjoyed looking at the rest of your house too. I love the exterior paint color and front/side porch. It's so cozy and warm!

SunRochy, did you use a special tile paint? What kind of preparation was involved? I really like this!

I cleaned the tiles very well and painted 2 coats (2 coats looks more like "distressed tiles", 3 coats will be good for more smooth look) with oil based white paint that is made for outdoor metal furniture since it is much less likely to turn yellow over time like most oil based paints. Be sure the room have a way to get the smell out (window, fan, or something like that).

If one is not comfortable with using oil based paint (the one for outdoor metal stuff), you can get special primer for tiles at Lowes (it is found with the other primers) and then paint with a latex paint that will dry hard.

Hi, I can't see your pictures, keep getting an error message. I'm the one who asked about the painted tile. You could email them to me. Thanks.
