Learn how to paint tile floors with a stencil using my step-by-step DIY tutorial. Get the look of brand new tile on a budget!
01. I used an orbital sander to sand the tile to make it rough.
03. Next, I taped off the trim and baseboards around my tile area with painter’s tape as my final prep work.
02. Then, I cleaned it thoroughly with a de-greasing cleaner. Carefully follow the instructions for whatever cleaner you choose. You have to get rid of any dust, dirt, grease, and grime so that the paint will stick!
Then, I put some Rustoleum Charcoal Chalked paint in a paint tray and used a small paint brush to paint over the grout lines and into the edges of my tiled area.
Next, I took a high density foam paint roller and painted all of the tiles with the Charcoal Chalked paint. I ended up painting them with two coats.
I taped the stencil down onto the tile with painter’s tape. Using a foam roller with a very small amount of Linen White Chalked paint on it, I painted carefully over the stencil.
Once the tiles had dried thoroughly, I finished up by removing the painter’s tape and sealing everything with Varathane polyurethane in a satin finish. You could also do a high-gloss, semi-gloss, or matte finish, depending on your preference.
THAT IS IT!
