I am planning to give a new look to my bathroom tile by painting and refinishing them, and have come across "Integrity Coatings" as an option for DIY-ers. Does anyone have any experience with that company? I have never done anything this big before, but am too cheap to hire someone else or replace the tile. It sounds good, but I would like to know if anyone else has tried this, or another tile paint?

1.   I know of no tile paint that will hold up
Nor have I heard of any from others
I'd save up and re-tile

QUES
Is this tile on the walls? Or on the floor. There is a big difference in the answer you will get.

There is a product called "Tub and Tile" that I have sold that works excellent for refinishing Tile and porcelain. It requires some light sanding to take the shine off the glaze, and also make sure you clean the area very well.

It is 2 coats, and it is a 2-part epoxy. We used it in the bathroom of the store as a demo, and did 1/2 of the sink. Left one part dirty original stained porcelain, and 1/2 refinished. It was like night and day. Never peeled, flaked or chipped in over 5 years, and cleaned like a dream.

Anyway, there are products out there. They are not the most DIY friendly due to odor concerns and mixing, but it works.

For floors....  not so much.
Making sure your tile is prepped well, will improve your odds.
