Wall Stencils Are An Easy Way To Freshen A Dull Laundry Room Floor
Good morning, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends! Did you know that our stencil patterns can add style and character to boring spaces like your laundry room? A stencil design is an easy and inexpensive way to put your personal touch on any room. Today we are sharing a stenciled laundry room floor featuring the August Tile Stencil. Come take a look and be totally inspired!
We’d like to introduce Jo, a creative DIYer, an interior design enthusiast, and the photographer behind the_simple_farmhouse. Seriously, she has one of the most gorgeous Instagram feeds we’ve seen and we totally recommend following her. Jo has been updating her home with one DIY project at a time. Her latest project was her laundry room. Jo said, “I have always wanted to have this floor ever since I saw it in the magnolia B&B. We already had tile laid so I decided to stencil my flooring. I ended up finding the perfect pattern stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils… don’t you love it?” That perfect pattern she’s talking about is our Augusta Tile Stencil from our Tile Stencil Collection. This beautiful pattern is based on traditional Portuguese Azulejos tile designs.
The first thing Jo did was clean the tile floor to ensure there wasn’t any debris and then she painted it using Zinsser 1.2.3 Primer in white. Cleaning and prepping the floor is key to completing a painted floor that will last for years. 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 Valspar Chalky Paint boot black.
After each section was complete, Jo would un-tape the stencil and reposition so she could paint the entire laundry room floor.
Once the entire floor was stenciled, Jo applied Miniwax Polycrylic Clear (satin finish) to increase durability and protect her beautiful painted pattern. You can read her complete tutorial in this guest post on My 100 Year Old Home. Let’s take a look at Jo’s pretty new laundry room space.
Jo had this to say about her stencil project, ” I LOVE the turnout!! For less than $100, I transformed the entire room from blah to brilliant.”
A stenciled floor can truly make such a big difference in a space. To prove this point we’re sharing a before and after of Jo’s stenciled laundry room.
