I have been searching a lot for how to paint over a faux finish. There is tons of information on how to do these techniques, but not on how to remove them, or paint over them.

I would like to repaint my bathroom, but the previous owner of my house used the feather dusting technique. However, she did this on all the walls, the ceiling, the back of the bathroom (wooden) door, and even into the shower area - directly onto the tiles....

Any help on where to start with this would be appreciated. The only thing I can think of is to sand the walls, scrape the tiles, and eventually replace the door. Is there any better way?? Thanks!

You can sand the faux finish on the walls and prime with an oil based primer and finish with an acylic paint designed for bathrooms. I had a customer that did a job were the entire was fuux finished and this is what we did and it turned out fine.
