Tile Facelift For Pennies

Hi all! Hope you all had a fabulous Mother's Day weekend!
We are back and in remodeling mode today with a DIY home remodeling tip that you are bound to get great use out of and love the end result just as much as we did.

Whether you are moving into a new home or remodeling your current one you may come across tiles that need a bit of a facelift. 
Whatever the case may be that you do not want to replace the tiles (time, work, money) we have a quick and easy fix to get those tiles looking like new again.

What You Need:
 A bucket filled with warm water and your choice of tile cleaner
A scrub pad
A 4 in 1 scraper 
An artist paint brush
A bottle of Polyblend Grout Renew in the color of your choice

As you can see, the bathroom tiles in this new home that I was remodeling was in dyer need of TLC and the person who lived in the home previously had obviously not cared or cleaned up the excess grout and paint spread all over the floor.

Uhhh! What a mess!

You are going to want to use your warm soapy water and scrub pad and scrub/get loose all of the nasty crud possible.
Next, use your scraper and start working one section at a time, scraping off all of the excess grout, paint, and  nastiness!

Vacuum up all loose debris and give your tiles one more quick wipe down.
After your floor is completely dry it is time to get to the fun part.
Grab your Polyblend Grout Renew, a paper plate, and your paint brush.
Starting in one corner, dip your brush in the paint that you poured onto your paper plate and start going over all of the grout lines.

After you have gone over all of your lines, wait 24 hours for your paint to dry, stand back, and enjoy your "almost like new" tiles!
   What do you think?
