DIY Painted and Stenciled Linoleum Floor
We've put so much work into making our kitchen a space we can really enjoy but there was one major eyesore killing the vibe: the ugly linoleum floors. Since we were saving up to replace the floors throughout our home eventually, I wanted to try something fun to make them pretty for the time being. Head over to the blog for a complete tutorial from start to finish.
Our standard builder grade linoleum sheet flooring before starting the painting process.
After cleaning the floors with TSP, I rolled on a coat of a good high adhesion primer.
I then painted on 2 coats of Glidden Porch and Floor in a soft mint color.
Then began the stencil process. It was tedious and long but well worth it in the end!
After completing the stencil I laid down 2 coats of poly to protect all my hard work. I made the mistake of using an oil-modified poly, which caused some yellowing once dried. If you try this project make sure to use WATER BASED poly.
I love how it turned out! I love that it adds a soft, whimsical element to the otherwise modern space.
