Hi I'm new here and also new to "do it yourself" home improvements . I am currently repainting my kitchen and then I am going to install a new floor. I have nice marble countertops, but above them all around the wall(between countertop and cabinets) is really ugly tile, I think its from the the 70's or something.

Is there anything I can do to get rid of it without actually removing it. This is probably a dumb question, but can you paint over tile?? Or cover it in some way. I'd really like to get rid of it completely but I can't afford to hire a contractor to do the work for me. I need to do the work myself.

I recently bought a product from ***** called Tough as Tile. Though I have not yet had time to try it myself, it is a low-cost and easy way to refinish sinks, tubs, and tile. I only saw it in white, but once you have the tiles painted, you could then stencil or stamp the tiles with paint from a craft store if you wished to fancy them up. Good Luck!
