When we purchased our 1941 home a few years ago, I knew that it was going to need a little love. A new coat of paint solved a lot of my design dilemmas, but there was one space that I assumed was a lost cause: The Pink Bathroom.

Not to mention gold fixtures (not the pretty kind) the original sink and zero storage. We did a quick update when we moved in with a new vanity, toilet, lighting and medicine cabinet, but the pink tile just kept staring at me every single day.

We immediately replaced the toilet, vanity, medicine cabinet and shower fixtures and painted the walls gray like the rest of the home. I had always played with the idea of painting the tile walls, but I wasn’t sure if there was a product on the market that would allow me to do this.

Before you begin, make sure you open your windows, have a fan running and wear a respirator mask if you have one. Remove old caulking and clean your tile and tub with Rust-Oleum Krud Kutter.

I did this two times knowing my tile was incredibly old and I wanted to get it as squeaky clean as possible!

Step 3: Allow the coating to set for 3 days before using water and reapplying new caulk around the tub.

Wiping off the stencil in between uses ensures a crisp design each time. Allow 24 hours after applying the top coat to walk on your beautiful new floors!

It’s best to wait a few days before putting back any furniture type items (such as a vanity) to make sure the paint is completely set. I really wanted to add a bold color in the bathroom, but as we all know, choosing the perfect shade of blue can be really stressful! Rust-Oleum made the decision simple and easy with their line of premixed, ready to use wall paints. I chose Rust-Oleum HOME Interior Wall Paint in North Shore. I loved how easy the paint was to work with and what a difference it made in my space! Step 1: Remove pictures, switch plates, nails and patch any areas that need repair.

Around windows, light fixtures, or my newly painted tile in this case. Step 3: Using a high quality edging brush, paint the areas around the fixtures, windows, doors and corners of the walls. This will ensure a smooth transition of paint from the edges of these areas to the main surface of the walls. Make sure you roll in a “W” pattern, overlapping each stroke for even coverage.

But I also had children interrupting me every 5 minutes for snacks 🙂 This is the most budget friendly way to update your bathroom, creating a space that you will love and be proud of…because you can do this yourself! *This post may contain affiliate links, which means we may earn a small commission if you purchase a product through our post.This helps support new content for our blog.
