Tips for Painting Bathroom Tile with Floor Stencils

Have you ever walked into a room in your house and been suddenly overcome with the need to redecorate? Like… immediately? Sometimes it just dawns on you that a room is NOT pretty or worthy and you won’t be happy until it is. Kelly of Domestic Blonde felt this way about her bathroom. It needed a revamp, like, NOW. Exhibit A of exactly what she was dealing with:

Her biggest job to tackle in the bathroom was the floor. She considered installing new tile over the present salmon pink tile (talk about outdated!), but that would be a lot of work. Isn’t there something easier that can get the job done quickly and easily? You betcha! Royal Design Studio Stencils to the DIY rescue. Kelly was excited to learn that she could actually paint over her existing tile, saving her wallet the cost of tile removal and installation! BONUS: Painting and stenciling tile gives her free reign to choose her favorite colors and design. No generic Home Depot tile for this fun and unique lady!

Check out how Kelly stenciled her bathroom floor: She first began by cleaning it well and removing any residue. She then applied 1-2 coats of a bonding paint primer with a paint roller. After that dried, she applied a coat of Behr Porch and Patio Floor Paint in Dove White.

She chose to stencil our large Parlor Lace Stencil Sherwin Williams Paint in Rainwashed for the pretty pattern, making sure to off-load the excess paint from the stencil brush first so that the paint wouldn’t bleed under the stencil. There are registration marks built right into the stencil that helped her stencil one repeat and reposition the stencil to the next repeat. To stencil the corners, Kelly bent the durable stencil to make it fit cleanly in those areas.

  • Hi Jaime – The size of stencil brush depends on the stencil that you choose and how many paint colors you want to use. We recommend using smaller stencil brushes for stenciling smaller elements of the design so you have more control where the paint goes. If your stencil is larger and you plan to paint it only one color, you can use a larger stencil brush to cover all the elements in one color :) You can buy stencil brushes here: https://www.royaldesignstudio.com/collections/stencil-brushes-rollers

  • What size stencil brush did you use? Does it matter?

  • I love how your bathroom renovation came out! Other than your beautiful flooring. Would you mind sharing the color you chose for your cabinets?
