Home renovation takes a lot of work and can cost a bomb. What if you wanted new tiles for your floor but you don’t want to remove all the old tiles?
This is where you can take a cue from Jess McGurn of Bright Green Door. The floor of her house was old and dated as shown in the picture below. “It wasn’t horrendous but it also wasn’t my style,” she said.
So, she got to work with paint and a custom stencil!
First, she painted over all the floor tiles with a 6” paint roller and used a short-handled brush for the edges. She covered the tiles in grey. She later mixed it with another paint to make it almost black.
Next, she held the stencil in place using a few strategically placed tapes. She then rolled white paint over the stencil using a 4” roller.
After rolling all the stencils, she used a paintbrush with black paint to cover up any mistakes. It was a painstakingly slow work but she enjoyed every minute of it.
Finally, she sealed the floor tiles with a good sealer. She sealed the grey tiles twice, twice more after it was stenciled and another two after stencilling the edges. In total, she sealed the floor six times!
Admire her masterpiece below!
