Can you paint over existing ceramic tiles, one that is already painted by the manufactures. There is nothing wrong with backsplash in the kitchen, the tiles that are painted don't match the colour scheme. I would like to know if I could paint over them? The design, is to try to make it brighter.

Here is a discussion, to paint or not to paint ceramic tile countertops. There does seem to be a difference of opinion.

Has anyone ever had luck with painting over kitchen counter tiles. I have the white and want a marble or granite look. I thought about sanding and priming and then painting with a faux finish.

I know of a couple who manages an apartment complex that is rather out of date. They hired a company to spray their tiles, relatively cheap. You could call a company that does this and ask what they do to see if you could recreate it, or inquire about the price. (07/27/2007)
