Drab to Fab: Grout Edition

Hi friends!  As you may or may not have guessed, I haven't been in the kitchen as much lately.  I've mentioned before that we are working on remodeling our kitchen, things are in full swing and at this time we don't have a stove and our refrigerator is in the basement!

In preparation for our new appliances and countertops, I did research on what I could do to restore the rest of our kitchen to it's maximum potential.  We are keeping our cabinets and current flooring, leading me to seek out projects for those pieces. The grout looked horrible and despite all the scrubbing in the world, it wasn't getting any cleaner....then I heard about Polyblend Grout Renew.  Basically, you paint it on, wipe it up and magic happens.  I purchased Oyster Grey from Home Depot and got to work.



So, instead of a recipe, I'm sharing this project with you!



Grout from Drab to Fab 

Ingredients

Small craft brush
Rags/Paper towels
Polyblend Grout Renew
Lots of time & patience

1. Make sure your grout has been scrubbed clean and has dried for 24 hours - there's no sense in painting over dirt. I used Krud Cutter for this step.

2. Paint one line of tile at a time using your craft brush.


3. Wipe the excess from the edges using a dry paper towel or cloth. Polyblend dries fairly quickly, but a wet paper towel removes it easily if you run into any issues. 


4. Continue until all tiles are finished.

Have you ever tackled grout?  What was your experience?
