My bathroom walls are tiled completely with "decorative", slightly embossed
tiles which a previous owner has painted over with what looks to be gloss
As you can probably imagine, the ones in the shower and round the sink don't
look too good now.
Anyway, is there an easy way to get the paint off - I'm reluctant to use
paint stripper in case it damages the grouting, and the only alternative I
can think of is to give the kids paint scrapers and let them loose up there.
Does anyone have any better ways of stripping the paint off?
Thanks in advance.
I think paint stripper will be the least hassle and think that damage to the
grout is unlikely. Scraping is unlikely to get all off and could scratch the
glaze on the tiles. Just watch you double mask off any plastic (eg. acrylic
bath) which will be ruined by stripper.
I agree with Fred. I would apply the paint stripper first to an area which
won't show, then see if the grout is affected. If it's not, go for it big
time. And if the grout is affected, it would be an opportunity for some
shiny new grouting which would make the room look a treat, no?
