I have a bathroom counter top with 1 sq. inch tiles. I need to replace the sink, but want to cover the nasty little tiles as well without having to rip the whole counter out. Is there a product that won't cost too much and will hide that tile?

There is a primer and paint that you can buy specifically for tiles. We looked at it to cover up a really tacky backsplash we had in our kitchen.

I have a neutral color ceramic backsplash in my kitchen. I primed it and used a textured paint. I would like to enhance the look. Can I sponge another color over the base color it is now, or do I have to start over? I am looking to do something very thrifty. Thank you.

You can, but just realize that the more coats you have, the more it changes the color. Sometimes that's good, but you can take it away from the base color too much. I would try it in one small area, then live with it for a few days and see what you think. Here's more on faux painting: http://www.oldh  e-painting.shtml
