An inexpensive and DIY farmhouse bathroom update.
What do you do when you want to change the flooring, but the thought of tiling isn’t appealing or in the budget? PAINT IT!!
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.

HELLO THERE GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!
BATHROOM UPDATE SUPPLIES
- 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 Thrift Store Tray Makeover
- Dining Room Makeover -On a Budget
- Industrial Farmhouse Toilet Paper Holder
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 using 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
- Use a fan to help speed up drying.
