    The folks at the local big box store, and they claim that a primer called the gripper will allow me to paint the tile, and have the paint last. Sounds to good to be true. Is it?

    Having the paint LAST and having it look good are two very different things. Unless you plan on having it professionally sprayed, then it might turn out to look like the result of a kindergarten fingerpainting class!

    Even the old tile embossed masonite would look better than painted tile.
