Ugly Plywood Floor Transformed Into Beauty


We transformed our ugly plywood floor in our new shop Sandpaper (facebook.com/sandpapervintagelove) into something beautiful. We used Coco and Pure White Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan and a Royal Design Studios Stencil. We then 2 coats of Annie Sloan Lacquer to seal.

The ugly before picture.

This is in the drying stage, after we applied 2 watered down coats of the Coco Chalk Paint®. The plywood was really sucking up the paint so when we watered it down it helped soak into the floor.

After it dried, we used the Acanthus stencil by Royal Design Studios in Pure White Chalk Paint®. It was rolled on with a 4" foam roller.

A close up of the stencil. We liked how it looked without a full coat of the Pure White Chalk Paint®. It gives it a rustic, worn look.
