refurbishing subway tiles in an older bathroom?

16 years ago

Hi all! I am posting a newbie message in the hopes of finding out some info. We recently bought a home - built in 1926 - the bath room tile is the original subway tiles - sort of an off white with crackle. We are on a budget and I love the look of the subway tile but they look dingy. I would love to refurbish them in some way - any ideas on cleaning...or brightening them up? Someone mentioned painting them but... I am hesitant for fear of ruining something that has the potential to be beautiful.

Any feedback would be great!
