Stencil Patterns Are An Affordable Way To Add Style To Your Kitchen Floor
Good morning, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends! Have your dated linoleum floors made your design dreams fizzle? We are going to tell you how paint and a stencil design can make them sizzle! Old flooring isn’t doomed because our stencils offer an affordable and easy way to update them. Simply choose your favorite paint color and stencil to give it a stylish new look. Today we’re going to share a kitchen floor that was enhanced with paint and our Santa Ana Tile Stencil. Come take a look…
We’d like to introduce Roxanne, a creative DIYer, home decor enthusiast, and blogger behind The Honeycomb Home. Roxanne has been working on updating her niece’s kitchen with various DIY projects.
The kitchen had old linoleum flooring that Roxanne described as outdated and yellow-ish. Short and simple, it had to go! Flooring can be expensive so Roxanne chose to paint and stencil the floor. She browsed our large collection of tile stencils and selected our Santa Ana Tile Stencil. This Portuguese- inspired pattern brings exotic flair to any floor or wall.
Roxanne started her project by cleaning any debris off the floor. We always recommend painting a floor with a great primer like STIX primer for a project like this. Roxanne painted the kitchen floor in Behr’s Slate Gray. She let the base coat of paint dry overnight and then she began stenciling. She used blue painter’s tape to hold her Santa Ana Tile Stencil pattern in place. Then she painted the tile design in white using a Wagner Paint Sprayer . To read more details about using a paint sprayer verse using a stencil brush, please visit her blog.
After each section was complete, she would un-tape the stencil and reposition so the entire floor would be painted. After the stencil was complete, Roxanne applied several coats of Rustoleum polyurethane to seal in her beautiful design. Are you ready for the big reveal? Here is the gorgeous stenciled floor in her kitchen.
Isn’t it spectacular? Roxanne had this to say about her stencil project, “The floors made the biggest difference of all.”
