Faux Ceramic Tiles
The garden gift shop was a wooden floor – plywood –
When we started building our own home I decided to do some of our conncret floors like this too. This is one of the floors.
Pick your paint: a grout colour, two other colours, and a white.
I marked 2 foot marks along the walls to create a 2’ x 2’ grid, then I got a 12 foot 1” x 2” board and lined it up so I could make a midway mark on the floor. Then I used the board to draw the line so I had a pencil mark for my grid.
Then I painted lines in the colour I wanted my grout
lines to be over my marks. Remember if you want light grout, do not make dark marks, as they may show through.
Sponge paint a tile and move onto the next trying to stay within the grid of each tile.
Let dry and lift the tape - I needed a utility knife to help me.
I love my floor and did a darker one in another room, plus a marble one, but that is a different post!
1/4” painters tape
Paint (colours and amounts depend on what you want I had 2 plus white and mixed them to get 4 colours- the dark on was my grout colour)
2 Sea Sponges – each ripped into 3-4 pieces
Paint brush to touch up grout lines
