Pretty Tiles Hidden for Years Under Black Paint

Leave a comment

Inspired by Christmas coming and traditions around the fireplace, I decided to do an overdue job.
The tiles around the fireplace in my daughters room had been painted in a matt black paint by the previous owner. I really don’t know why.
I applied the paint remover to the tiles with the window wide open because that stuff is seriously smelly and toxic.
Forty minutes later the black paint peeled off in wet curly sheets revealing bright blue tiles to match the hearth- much prettier. I do love colour!
