Then we were going to glue the beadboard to the tile and plywood. It was so uneven, we couldn’t even get the board to stick. Then we took the paneling off, and the lipstick told us exactly where to cut the holes. I bought this drawer box from Lillian Vernon to organize all my kids’ school papers. Son #4 put two coats of the same paint we used for the cabinets. We’ve hung some picture frame molding, beadboard, trimmed out our dining room centerpiece.But we are losing the battle of the trim and beadboard backsplash in our kitchen redo.
The first step to painting a tub/shower is cleaning it.
But it isn’t on par with painting your bedroom walls—it requires much greater attention to detail, considerable down time while the paint cures, and ample ventilation.
(Update – Click here to see how my painted shower is holding up after a year of use! I wavered about doing something with the tile in our master bathroom for a long time.
We were planning on covering the tile backsplash with the beadboard paneling and adding a little trim to complete the ends. We cut the outlet holes out of the paneling with a great idea I’ve seen many of you smart DIYers out there do.

In two places, we were going to bring out the beadboard past the tile and onto the wall to the end of the countertop like this: We nailed a piece of 1/2″ plywood to the wall. I painted the outlet with lipstick, put the paneling in place and pressed. I hope you enjoyed pictures of a part of my kitchen redo.

) Who here has really outdated tile in their bathroom but doesn’t want to rip it out and replace it? It’s not terrible and I don’t hate it…but by the same token I don’t love it either.
