We have an eighties house with yellow/gold colored tile in one bathroom and light blue tile in the other. Neither of these tile colors works for us and we'd like to paint the tile in both bathrooms white so that we can use any color in them.

Can we successfully paint bathroom tile and, if so, what type of paint works well?

I think the name of a product that you can paint tile with is called Tile Doc.

Thanks very much for the tip on Tile Doc! I immediately found a website for it and e-mailed asking if it would meet my needs.

Was curious to hear how the tile painting turned out. I'm experienced using etching cream, so this seems like a great alternative to re-tiling the entire bathroom. Also, the apartment I rent painted the bathrom tile during a recent remodeling (at least a year ago), and it seems to have held up beautifully. how did it work for you? I see so many conflicting articles about it being a good idea and a horrendous idea.
