DIY Custom Floor Using Stencils
Welcome back Cutting Edge Stencil friends! We have a great tile stencil project this week that allows you to customize your own floor. Sounds cool right? The best part is it’s super easy. Let’s get stenciling!
The stencil used for this personalized tile floor is the Metro Hex Tile Stencil. The paints used were Benjamin Moore Navajo White and Black. Spray adhesive is recommended for this project because the bridges of the tile stencil are very small. You can use a 4” stencil roller for the tile stencil and a professional stencil brush for the lettering.
Before you continue reading, check out the steps in action:
After you’ve cleaned your floor paint it black, or whatever color you desire. This will be the color of the grout lines in between the hexagon tiles. Allow the floor to dry completely. Place your tile stencil on the floor to start.
Fill in the stencil by applying light pressure to the stencil roller. Make sure to offload any excess paint from your stencil roller onto a paper towel before stenciling the floor. This helps reduce paint from seeping underneath the stencil. The number one mistake when stenciling is having too much paint on your stencil brush or roller!
Peel back your stencil to reveal this awesome tile. Doesn’t that pattern just pop?
For the next section, simply align the tile stencil with the previously stenciled portions. This registration system makes stenciling a breeze!
Keep stenciling until your floor is filled with this beautiful hexagon pattern. The design looks so intricate but with a tile stencil, it was no trouble to create at all! Onto the lettering portion of this DIY stencil project.
The Metro Hex Tile Stencil comes with a FREE stencil that allows you to create letters on your tile floor! This is the key to personalizing your tile floor. You can spell out whatever you want to say. Feel free to express yourself! To start, we found the center of this tile floor by counting the number of hexagons horizontally and vertically. To make sure the words are centered we decided to work our way from the middle of the stenciled floor outwards. Pro Tip: map out the letters using the stencil and mark the hexagons you want stenciled with a pencil. Dig this idea? Check out more stencil inspiration on the Stencil Ideas section of our website!
