How To DIY A Tile Floor For Less Than $100 Using Stencils

Stencil Patterns Give An Old Floor A Budget Friendly New Look

Good morning, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends! Do you have a tile floor that is in serious need of a pick me up but your budget can’t accommodate a complete overhaul? We have the perfect solution for you! Our floor stencils can offer a quick and easy solution for updating your floor. Using paint and a stencil pattern you can give your floor a fresh new look.  Today we’re going to share a studio floor makeover that was enhanced with our Augusta Tile Stencil. Come take a look…

Cutting Edge Stencils shares how to make over an old floor on a budget using the Augusta Tile Stencil. http://www.cuttingedgestencils.com/augusta-tile-stencil-design-patchwork-tiles-stencils.html

We’d like to introduce Kippi Lee Leonard, an Artist, an Interior Designer in the Washington area, and a Cutting Edge Stencils fan. Kippi is renovating her 1942 home with one DIY project at a time.  One of the spaces that she was updating was her soon-to-be art studio.  Here is what it looked like:

Kippi disliked the dirty looking carpet so she tore it up and revealed a dated tile.  Since she couldn’t afford to rip it up and replace it, she chose to DIY a new look. Kippi had stumbled upon a stenciled floor project and decided to attempt.  She browsed our large collection of tile stencils and selected our Augusta Tile Pattern. This beautiful pattern is based on traditional Portuguese Azulejos tile designs and has become very popular.

The first thing Kippi did was clean her floor to ensure there wasn’t any debris and then she painted two coats of paint in black. With her stencil in hand, she was ready to start stenciling! She used blue painters tape to hold the stencil in place and a dense foam roller to paint the pattern in white.  After each section was complete, Kippi would un-tape the stencil and reposition so she could paint the entire floor.

Once the stencil was complete, she coated the floor with a polycrylic sealer to increase durability. Are you ready for the big reveal?  Here is a gorgeous stenciled floor in her new art space.

Kippi had this to say about her project, “I can’t quit photographing it. What a transformation!!! I can’t wait to create in this space.” We think she did an amazing job and completely turned a drab floor into something fab!

    I have a large living room that came with blue and orange 6″ ceramic tile. Would painting with stencils on so many small tiles be feasible?

    Hi Kamie,

    That is solely up to you. We have had plenty of people stencil right over all of their tiles and some customers have done whole tile floors over before. It all depends on if you would want to take the time and stencil your tiles.

    Best,
    Erika

    What type of paint did she use to paint on that tile? I am seriously considering doing this in a small bathroom…..

  • CESteam

    Hi Kathy,

    We are not sure of the paint she used, but any black paint will work fine. We do also recommend priming the floor first before adding your base coat. The paint sticks better to the primer than the tile directly. You can use STIX primer and I believe you an even get it tinted black so you don’t actually need to add a base coat after that. From there you can go ahead and stencil! I do hope this helps. -Erika
