Do you have an outdated linoleum floor that drives you NUTS?
You're not alone!
Roxanne, mom of two and DIY expert behind the blog The Honeycomb Home, is a pro at projects that give a luxurious look on a budget -- and no linoleum is safe from her! When her niece wanted to get rid of her ugly yellow linoleum floors, Roxanne jumped right in.
With just a stencil and gray and white spray paint, a dated floor was instantly transformed into a unique “tiled” masterpiece, reminiscent of pricey European tile.
Itching to do this in your home?
Luckily, Roxanne shared her step-by-step how-to with us!
HERE'S WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
White Paint – (plain white eggshell enamel paint)
Slate Gray Porch & Patio Paint
Rust-Oleum Polyurethane Floor Sealer
Extension Paint Roller
And here’s exactly how she did it:
1. Paint the perimeter of the room with porch paint.
2. Using an extension paint roller, paint the rest of the floor.
Let the paint dry for a day or two before beginning to stencil.
(In hindsight -- though she was hoping to avoid this step by using porch paint -- Roxanne suggests using a sealer when she was done painting, since the porch paint ended up being less durable than expected.)
3. Using a paint sprayer and stencils, start stenciling!
(Roxanne practiced on a piece of cardboard first!)
If you have an overspray problem like Roxanne did, place a barrier on the slimmer sides of the stencil. (Though she initially only had garbage bags on hand, she prefers cardboard as a barrier.)
Roxanne suggests saving the end and corner tiles for last, since you’ll have to bend your stencils to get those sections to look good.
In terms of precision, look what a difference the paint sprayer made!
4. After the paint dries, apply the floor sealer -- and don’t walk on the floor for about 24 hours after!
