I have white ceramic tile in my kitchen (came with the house). I'd prefer to have a stone brown color, since we live in the country. Can you safely dye, or stain ceramic tile and then put a protective coat over it? I also have another issue. Some of the tiles are cracked. The problem with totally replacing the tile is money. I have a big kitchen and can't afford it right now. So, I'm trying to think of ways I can just redo what I have.
