DIY Renovation on a Budget: Updating Tiles and Surfaces
I love renovation. I love DIY-ing. And when you add budget-friendly, low-cost, cheap, or inexpensive in the picture, I’m in heaven! LOL!
I came across this blog post from BG Property Styling on inexpensive ways of updating tiles and surfaces in the bathroom, kitchen, floors, etc. I found a couple of tips that are absolutely doable and within budget and time constraints. Well, hello there, Weekend Project! *wink*
Step 1 Sprinkle baking soda like you would scouring powder into the bathtub/shower area. Rub with a damp sponge. Rinse thoroughly.
Step 2 To remove film buildup on bathtubs, apply white vinegar full-strength to a sponge and wipe. Next, use baking soda as you would scouring powder. Rub with a damp sponge and rinse thoroughly with clean water.
Step 3 Vinegar removes most dirt without scrubbing and doesn’t leave a film. Use 1/4 cup (or more) vinegar to 1-gallon water.
Step 4 To clean grout, put 3 cups baking soda into a medium-sized bowl and add 1-cup warm water. Mix into a smooth paste and scrub into grout with a sponge or toothbrush. Rinse thoroughly and dispose of leftover paste when finished.
2. Update tiles by painting. I found this interesting. Definitely a cheaper alternative to replacing all dated tiles. Plus, it’s fast and easy: Here’s how: First. coat the tiles with a high-adhesion primer. Then, brush on a special ceramic epoxy covering. For a fraction of the cost of new tile, you will have an up-to-date look of your floor, walls, and surfaces.
So yes, that’s gonna be my weekend project. What about you? Any projects planned for the weekend?
