Laundry Room Stenciled Floor Tile

We moved into a brand new build (this was my last house) but that ceramic tile was just not my jam.

I decided I wanted to give it a

makeover. Heres the before.

I cleaned the tile and rinsed it really well.

I then added two coats of primer for a good base.

After my primer dried I put on two coats of Fusion Mineral Paint in Limestone.

Once that was dry I could add my stencil!

I scooped this stencil from Michaels. It’s a 12” and fits perfectly over the tiles.


I used a blue chalk paint and a paint brush with hardly any paint to brush my stencil over each tile. Using just a little paint helps prevent excess paint seeping around the stencil.

I’m very pleased with my crisp lines. I also keep a wet paper towel handy to wipe off the stencil as I go to keep it as clean as possible.

I repeated the process over each square. This took a couple hours but it was well worth it.

Once the entire floor was stenciled and dry I used a water based poly to seal the floor. A few coats and it was done.


and that is my laundry room floor makeover!


I have the whole Process saved to a highlight on Instagram if you want to check out the videos!
