Tile painting Mummy-2-2-Monsters Due July 11; 2 kids; Seven Hills, Australia 10659 posts

Have you done it? Was the end result as good as you hoped? Is it hard to do? Any advice?



We have an open bathroom.. Water flowing all over... Lots of mold. Just horrible.



We have sand and cement mixture already and some small rectangular bricks that are solid with no holes.. Perfect for a shower base outline I reckon. I want to cement the bricks around the edge of the shower. Render it smooth. Then paint over it and all of the tiles in the bathroom.



We have 4 different tiles and colours all around the bathroom and I don't really care about their shape, more so their colour. And would love it to be all one colour.




Would this be a waste of time. Good idea? Difficult? Or well worth it and will be absolutely fantastic!!!




I have no idea! But it would definitely be a cheap fix for the water situation in the bathroom that's for sure.

Yeah I think it's called tub & tile paint here. I hope it's not expensive though.

I didn't either! I saw it on Pinterest. Then on better homes Nd gardens show and it got me thinking. We could fix up our bathroom with a simple brick shower rim, cement and paint! It could look really nice instead of crappy like it is now.



I'm hoping hoping hoping I don't screw this up.

Bricks might be porous unless they are sealed? I would check into that also. But it sounds like a very neat idea!

It's a whole brick, it doesn't have those regular brick holes in it. It's just one solid piece. So i dont think water would leak through.

We do have that tube puddy for windows so its water proof... Could we use that for around the bottom and side edges of the brick after cementing?

I would use a printable sealant on the brick first

just go to Bunnings and tell them what you're planning to do and they'll just get it all together for you
