One of my favorite trends right now is cement tiles with bold patterns. They seem to be popping up in bathrooms and kitchens everywhere. The tiles bring bold patterns in neutral colors that I just can’t help but love. I’m currently pinning every single pattern tile on this post over at The Sweetest Occasion. I wanted to use these awesome patterns in my front porch update, but I just wasn’t sure I wanted to tile the space.
So when Cutting Edge Stencils gave me the chance to review one of their stencils I found the perfect one for creating a cement tile look. The Tea House Trellis stencil was used on my cement floor, and the final result is a cement tile look for a fraction of the cost!
To begin I prepped and painted my cement floor the dark gray color. You can read more about painting cement floors over on this post.
After that came time for the detailed work of using the stencil. My floor did not perfectly fit a set number of stencils so I decided to start off with the complete stencil along the open edge of our floor and work the way over to the wall, ending with a partial stencil print.
Because I was working to keep my stencil straight I used a tape measure to ensure that the edge of my stencil was staying the same number of inches away from the wall. Painters tape was used to help hold the stencil in place. You can see more great tips on how to stencil on this post.
Still love the blush front door!
My arrangement of potted flowers makes the whole porch feel more welcoming. You can see more of my favorite modern farmhouse flower pots over here.
I am thrilled with the final result of my porch floor, the stencil gave me exactly the look I was going for. Just two more small projects for the front porch, waiting for the couch to arrive, and then the space will be done!
