The title says it all. This post is how to paint grout. It's really quite easy actually. I'll take you on a photographic journey of the two steps of painting grout. Basically went with a wax on, wax off approach. Just that simple!
But first, some background...
Anyways, back to the bathroom tile, it's as easy as slathering on this grout paint with a toothbrush. Don't worry about how much gets on the tile, unless it's a porous time, then maybe just try to get the right grout!
But if it's porcelain or glass, have no fear- it's like oil and water. It just wipes off.
I am so happy with how it turned out!
And it was such an easy little project, with awesome results.
Have you ever tried to paint your grout? Is that something you would have even thought to do? It's such a great option, especially to freshen up old, yucky grout.
Happy Grout Painting!
Sick, But Not of It
Day by Day
Every day our kitchen is coming together more and more. It's been awesome! We were kind of at a standstill as we needed the door in before we could really progress. So we made a day trip to Calgary to pick up the door (and countertops!!), which meant we could start ripping down the wall guts (drywall, vapour barrier and insulation) as we were a step closer to being able to redo the walls now that the door was where it should be.
So the door got installed and for a day we shall have "French doors".... Sort of! The new door is an outswing and the other one is an inswing, and our neighbours are probably scratching their heads wondering what we are doing with two mismatched doors! But it's day by day here. That inswing door will soon be gone, and we can begin patching the hole in the wall and insulate. We went with Roxul insulation, since we have 2x4 exterior walls, and we can get R14 out of that stuff. Definitely better than the 2" itchy insulation we had!
When you do it all yourself, it feels like much more of an accomplishment. At the end of the day, you can look back and see what all you've done!
The time has quickly come to pick up the countertops and door, so we are really getting ready to say: "Out with the old, and in with the new!"
The cabinets are all built, except for one that was too big to build downstairs (then bring upstairs) and the one that we need to exchange at IKEA. For those who missed it in a
previous post... A 24" pantry somehow turned into a 30" pantry- we need the 24" one.
That being said, we are definitely at the messy part of the kitchen renovation!
Happy Demolition Days!
