Use Tile Stencils To Create A Faux Tiled Floor
We’d like to introduce Haley, a fashion stylist by day and a creative DIYer inspiring others with her blog Me and Mr. Jones. Haley and her husband plan to update the flooring in their home someday. She thinks her bathroom floor is simply hideous but new tile flooring is just not in the budget. She said, “The original tile had a yellow tone to it and was killing my black and white interior decor dreams!” Since she had seen several stenciled floor tutorials, she felt like she could do it!
For the complete tutorial, links to the products she used, and all of Haley’s tips, please read her blog Me and Mr. Jones. We’re going to quickly review her project and show off her great results. Haley properly prepped her bathroom floor and made sure she cleaned the tile and grout. She primed the floor using Kilz primer and painted it using Rustoleum Chalked Paint in Linen White.
Next she was ready to start stenciling. Haley placed her Augusta Tile pattern on the floor and used blue painter’s tape to hold it in place. She painted the pretty tile pattern in Renaissance Furniture Chalk Paint in Midnight Black using a stencil brush.
If you are recreating this project at home, be sure to brush off any excess paint on a piece of paper towel. Too much paint will cause the design to bleed. Here’s a great video showing how Haley stenciled her floor.
After the stencil was complete, Haley applied a clear coat of Minwax Polycrylic in Satin to ensure her stenciled floor was durable. Are you ready for the big reveal?
Haley had this to say about her stencil project, ” We LOVE how it turned out and it hasn’t scratched or chipped yet (it’s been painted for about 3 weeks now).” Here is a great before and after shot!
Tell us, which tile stencil pattern would you use on your floor? We’d love to read your thoughts in the comments below.
