Replacing the missing tiles:
Fixing the tiles was a surprisingly simple and very quick task. The tiles go up the chimney a bit so I levered a few off with my Worx Sonicrafter (you can see them on the counter above) and chipped off all the old grout carefully. Then I simply stuck them into the missing gap with some Weldbond, and when the glue was dry filled in the gaps with Gap Filler. You cannot tell where they were missing and it took me about half an hour tops to do.
Getting the tiles off was super easy with the Worx Sonicrafter. You could use a screwdriver but the Sonicrafter made it a super easy process.
Tile paint in three steps:
1 - Clean tiles thoroughly, all oiliness needs to be washed away so the paint will adhere properly
2 - Paint with primer
3 - Paint with tile paint once primer is dry
Seriously - how amazing is this transformation of the before and after.
You may have noticed there is a new bench top too. Another really inexpensive and easy to achieve transformation! I will be sharing how we did here soon.
