It is the hardest to paint black to white. You need to remove the black paint with something if it is possible and than paint it white. But maybe it is more work than change all the tiles.

I know nothing much about d.i.y. but would you be able to get some paint stripper and do a few tiles at a time? If stripped right back you may like the original colour or just paint again if you don't.

If he used standard paint then it shouldnt be too hard to remove. Tile paint will come off aswell but will just be a bit more difficult.

smedleys97 you might have some luck with a wallpaper steamer if you have one, i used that on painted tiles before and it peeled off easy.

Black! Wow that is er... interesting. Yes stripping is the way to go although you may find the paint had darkened the grout which you can get white paint pens to fix.
