Chalk Paint® Stenciled Floor Cloth

Painted and stenciled floorcloths have a rich history - used in homes throughout England and the United States prior to the invention of linoleum, they were often made from recycled canvas ship sails. For a quick and easy alternative floor covering we created this amazing stenciled vinyl floorcloth using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint on the BACK side of some pre-cut vinyl.

How to Stencil: Chalk Paint® Stenciled Floor Cloth
Classical Border & Corner Stencil, Florentine Damask Stencil, and our Eastern Lattice Moroccan Stencil were used on this beautiful carpet!
Our Large Eastern Lattice Moroccan Stencil is a great complement to the Classical Border & Corner Stencil.
Good preparation of the stencil is essential in getting a clean outline and to minimize seepage.
Our Stencil Brushes, which are available in various sizes, are the perfect tool for these smaller detail areas.
Our Florentine Damask Stencil adds the perfect flourish as a border to this Chalk Paint® floor cloth.

    It's is stunning and I'm so envious of how you pulled this off. I have the tools,have watched the tutorials and still can't come close to doing anythung nearly as professional looking as this. I'm sure patience is a key factor of which I have none. Again bravo!

      Stenciling is great for beginners! Our website tutorials show you how... but even then, stenciling is a fun way to be unique and make it all your own! Rock the look that your stenciling hand tells you to do :)

    This is really awesome. You are definitely a perfectionist, because it is done absolutely perfect. Great job. Thank you for sharing.
