View Full Version : tile on painted wall

02-13-2010, 11:46 AM
I've had to make a slight change to my planned tile layout and it looks like I will be carrying the tile over to part of a wall I had earlier decided to have painted. I've already painted the wall with semigloss. My question is: Can I tile over the paint? If so, Is Versabond enough?

Or do I need to sand off the paint?

As long as this is outside any "wet areas" (like a tub surround or shower), then scuff up the paint with some ~60-grit sandpaper and wipe off the dust with a damp sponge. :)

Thanks Bubba, I was hoping that would be the case.
