What do you do when you want to change flooring, but the thought of tiling isn’t appealing or in the budget?
Yep, you heard that right!
We painted over our old linoleum until we can do a more permanent situation here….aka until the budget allows for it.
If you have been with us for awhile, you may know that Friday’s here means Salvage Sister & Mister Feature Me!!! There are so many people that know how to make the best with what they got, and we love to share them.
As we mentioned before, Facebook groups, can be a great place to be inspired. Recently, in another group, this bathroom update was shared from Cristina Dickinson.
HELLO THERE GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!
Here’s what she did~
If you want this look, you will need-
- Augusta Stencil (she ordered two so she could do the process faster)
- Paint (floor paint, chalk paint, or whatever you choose)
- Polycrylic (3 coats)
- Foam Roller
- Small brush for touch ups (bleed through)
- Painters Tape
FARMHOUSE BATHROOM UPDATE DETAILS/TIPS –
You need to clean the floors and then clean with TSP.
You can use floor paint or some have used chalk paint. Do as many coats as needed to cover over existing tile/flooring.
It took about 4 hours having the two stencils.
You can cut the stencil, if you like, to get in edges.
She started at the entry of the bathroom so if there had to be smaller ones, a stencil that wouldn’t be complete, it would be against the wall.
Don’t use polyurethane because over time that will turn white paint yellow
