Kitchen splashback refresh with paint

Having an Impact

Kitchen splashback refresh with paint

I researched so many options for a splashback to cover the holes after I removed some shelves and a knife block.  It was going to be time consuming and costly.


Simple solution was to fill the holes and paint the tiles!


Step 1

Wash the tiles using sugar soap.



Step 2

Sand using a sander and wipe clean.

Step 3

Fill the holes with the putty, following the instructions on the pack.

Step 4

Once dry, sand to a smooth finish.

Step 5

Paint the undercoat, then two coats of top coat, leaving until completely dry between coats.

Step 6
