Help me paint my bathroom
January 26, 2014 4:19 PM Subscribe
I have a bathroom that has had some serious moisture issues over the years. I recently installed an exhaust fan and that's mitigated the problem somewhat. My big issue is this: the wall paint (semi-gloss latex) is peeling off where the wall and tile meet. It started bubbling up here and there and I made the mistake of pulling on a little piece today and the paint came off like peeling an orange. I need to repaint several of the walls in the bathroom while trying to prevent the paint from peeling off again. How do I seal the walls or at least where the wall and the tiles come together to keep the moisture out?

Several years ago I removed some awful wall paper in the bathroom and used joint compound mixed with water to fill holes and apply a texture to the walls that matched the old horse hair plaster walls in the rest of the house. Was the joint compound a bad idea?
