And without a primer, you run the risk of multiple coats and worse, the paint not sticking to the tile at all, even if you sanded. In our paint department, we sell primers that can stick to high sheen surfaces without sanding.But Ashley's vision and hard work came together beautifully in an updated and lovely space: Let’s start with a little introduction…I’m Ashley – furniture painter, blogger, small business owner, decorator, wife, dog lover and wine drinker.

After researching relatively simple and inexpensive ways to update my bathroom's hideous 'butterscotch' tiles, my partner and I thought we'd give adhesive linoleum tiles a go because they're cheap, impactful (in classic black and white squares), relatively simple to install yourself, and super quick (versus not being able to use the facilities for a few days!

If using water-based paint, be sure it contains a urethane resin.
