Good Questions

Q: HELP! We've been living in our house for 3 years and the bathroom is the one room we haven't done much with. I can't handle the color of the tile anymore! I have thought about painting the tile but I need help...tips or tricks. Is it smart to paint bathroom tile? How easy is it and what products did you use? OR should I just leave it and paint the wall above the tile?

(These pictures are from the walk-through of the house 3 years ago--we have a different shower curtain, new towel holders, and I painted the medicine cabinet & light fixture white.)
