That's pretty. Somehow you got the pink to work right in. Nice! (03/27/2009)

I think you did a fabulous job! If I may ask, what kind of paint is used to paint the ceramic tile that would not chip off? I love your color scheme with the red and white to go with the pink. Great job! (03/28/2009)
Thanks for your interest. We used a special primer, then 2 coats of ordinary Dulux Satinwood paint and topped it with clear satin varnish. Just make sure the tiles are thoroughly clean before you start! Also we used a small roller to give a really nice smooth finish. The colour, I think, was from the National Trust for Scotland range. I don't know if you'd get satinwood if you are in the States, but it is a very low gloss (satin finish) paint mainly for wood and metal. We used it on a radiator in our last home. (03/29/2009)
