Q: Hey there! I just moved into a new apartment and hope to re-paint the top half of the bathroom a dramatic color, possibly black! There are tiles running halfway up the wall, but it looks like whoever painted it last didn't have the precise care of a sane person and totally taped and painted over the top half of the tile trim...

Is there any easy way to remove this? I'm scared the strip of white paint on the tile is going to look super weird and obvious once I paint the top half. Even if I don't paint, it just looks bad and I'd love to get rid of it. -Sent by Andrea

Editor: What a mess! Any advice for how Andrea can remove the paint from the tile, ideally without spending too much time, investing too much money, or damaging the tile? And what if she can't remove it — how should she proceed with her bathroom re-do?
