How To Stencil A Tile Pattern On A Bathroom Floor

1 Material
An old linoleum bathroom floor can be boring and dull. When a full bathroom makeover is not feasible, adding a floor stencil is an easy and affordable way to perk up the space! Today we’re going to share with you a guest bathroom makeover that was enhanced with a stencil pattern. Come take a look...
We'd like to introduce Susanna, a creative DIYer with a passion for budget friendly decor and blogger behind Livin the Life of Riley. A few months ago, she spotted a gorgeous tile pattern while scrolling through her Instagram feed. She fell in love but the reality was that she was unable to replace her guest bathroom floor. Here is what it looked like before.
Susanna had grown tired of the beige hue and dull linoleum flooring in her guest bathroom. Since new flooring was not an option, she took to Pinterest for ideas. That's when she stumbled upon a stenciled linoleum floor project. Susanna decided that using a floor stencil to makeover her floor was a great idea. She browsed our large collection of tile stencils and selected our August Tile Stencil. This beautiful pattern is based on traditional Portuguese Azulejos tile designs.
Susanna cleaned the floor to ensure there wasn't any debris and then she painted the linoleum using DecoArt's Chalk Paint in Relic. With her stencil in hand, Susanna was ready to start stenciling! She painted the lace-inspired pattern in white. She used blue painters tape to hold the stencil in place and a dense foam roller to paint the pattern. Susanna painted the pretty pattern in Everlasting by DecoArt's Chalk Paint.Our stencil essentials kit contains all of the supplies needed to complete a project like this one. Here she is working through the process.
After each section was complete, Susanna would un-tape the stencil and reposition so she could paint the entire floor. Once the stencil was complete, Susanna coated the floor with Minwax's Polycrylic. Are you ready to see how this all turned out? Here is a gorgeous stenciled floor.
Susanna completed the space with some special decorating touches. We think she did an amazing job and completely turned a drab floor into something fab!
