Hi I'm James with JNC Home Repair and today I'm going to show you how to paint over existing bathroom tiles. One thing to consider before you are painting on any kind of tiles or anything you want to make sure that you use the right kind of paint for what you are doing. You don't want to use some kind of interior latex on ceramic tile because it is just not going to stick right. You want to do a little bit of research, check the product that you are using and then compare it with whatever kind of surface you are actually trying to paint it on. You just want to make sure that you are using the right kind of paint. You can apply it with a brush or it can be sprayed. You'll see here that we are actually just going to apply this paint directly over the tile and you can see that it just brushes right on just like anything other paint would, any other surface. I would prefer if you want to get that real smooth finish you are probably going to want to do some kind of spraying. It is going to go on a lot smoother and you are not going to be able to see the brush marks and the streaks but today brushing on will work just fine. It just takes a little bit longer and you don't need to go buy a real expensive paint sprayer to actually apply it. You can do it with just a basic paint brush and whatever type of paint you are actually trying to use. You can see it just applies right on real smooth and it is real nice and easy and that is basically all there is to it to applying paint to existing bathroom tiles.
