Rick and Mary Beth Holladay of The Art Factory in Germany finally decided to tackle their bathroom makeover project. The old red, vinyl floor needed replacing, but they didn’t have the time or money to invest in it. They found the perfect solution to their problem through Pinterest’s inspiring DIY projects using tile stencils from Royal Design Studio. They were delighted that painting over the existing old floor with tile patterned floor stencils was a perfect alternative to the expense and mess of removing the old tiles.
For their tile transformation, they used garage floor paint in both dark and light gray colors to create a sophisticated, neutral palette. They taped off the tile squares using Frog Tape, following the lines of the original tile floor.
To create a classic tile effect on their bathroom floor, they chose our Verona Tile Stencil from our Tile Stencils Collection. Look how elegant this “tiled” floor is compared to the original vinyl! Who would guess that it was floor stencils?
Note: For high traffic areas such as the bathroom, we recommend using a durable, floor-rated topcoat seal the deal!

I would like to do this to a small bathroom floor, but read that if there is a shiny finish to the original vinyl tile then it won’t work. Is this true? Also my vinyl floor tile has a textured pattern already on it. Any ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you!!
