christine c says:

Chuck Spencer says:

Question BYOT (might be a stupid one) do you think this would work over terrazzo floors?

Leigh Meacham says:

Hi. Great video. Am going to do this in my kitchen with black paint. Is primer necessary or will it be ok if the tile is sanded correctly?

BDB says:

I’m thinking of doing the same but painting my tile black. I want to do an all black theme

YorkEastEnd says:

Thanks for the video! I followed your lead EXACTLY! Except i used black paint. – We have a woman’s bathroom in our office, i was quoted $600+ to do this job!!! So I took a Sunday and did it myself with your guidance, it looks great!! Thanks again!

David Elder says:

Joan Riley says:

good project but floor not looking too good. didn’t work out well.

Ellen Mancini says:

Ive been looking for someone who is encouraging about painting tile. Everyone else says “no way”, but you have given me some hope that this could work. Definitely worth a try. Thanks!

Joan Tardiff says:

Thank you for a most informative video. I have a patio table with tile inserts. They are black, gray and ugly. Want to paint them white. Can the floor paint you used be used on this kind of surface? We of course would use place mats when food is served.

robert hingston says:

The tiles look fantastic painted

theaichele8 says:

If you buff the floor, can the paint be removed and returned to relatively to what the tile looked like originally? Or once it’s done there’s no going back? We have hideous flooring in our townhouse, and we are allowed to do anything as long as if the owner doesn’t like upon moving out she can have it returned to how it was prior…

Century 21-Mid State Realty The Southern Homes Team says:

Great video. Can you paint the grout?

Thanks for this! Do you think this would work on the god awful terra-cotta tiles in my screened in porch?

Just what I needed to see !! Now I can paint over the nasty color tile the previous put in .. thank you !!!!

veronica slaughter says:

can I paint a bathroom floor the same way? Loved the video.

Frank Ortega says:

Did you add a polyurethane coat to seal it? Just asking. Will it chip if you don’t?

nadine barela says:

been looking for a video on this for my kitchen tile. is there a top coat that can be used for this for extra durability?

Linda Miles says:

This is very helpful, thank you. Sorry, I didn’t notice the butt crack.

DJL S says:

Ghadh A says:

Gloomy color

Chris says:

Did you ever paint the white border to have the pop of color ? Is so what did it look like ?

Spiny Norman says:

Great vid! Can you censor your butt crack though? I can’t watch with a boner.
