She Hated Her Ugly Linoleum Floors, So She Painted Them!

It comes as no surprise that your bathroom receives a pretty serious amount of foot traffic

But even though the floor goes through some wear and tear, keeping things warm and inviting is always important. One clever do-it-yourselfer noticed that the linoleum tiles in her bathroom were looking a little worse for wear. After witnessing what Suzanna Riley did to bring life back to her bathroom floor, I want to run to the hardware store and get to work!

She was willing to take a big risk in terms of home decor and it paid off in a major way.
While there wasn’t really anything wrong with the flooring, Riley wanted to spruce things up a bit.

She ordered a custom stencil kit online and made a stop at her local craft store to pick up chalk-based acrylic paint.

She made sure her entire floor was spotless and began applying the first coat.

In total, she applied two coats of the grey paint before it was time to stencil her final design onto the tiles.

She stenciled them in a way that would allow her to reuse the template without messing up the previous tile.

When all the stenciling was complete, she sealed the floor with five coats of polycrylic finish.

That doesn’t even look like paint!
