Renew with paint!
This drab old bathroom has been given a fresh new look with a striking palette and pretty patterned stencils.
Johane Neilson


• The floor area of the bathroom is 5m²; adjust the materials and costs to suit the size of your own project.

• In preparation, the tiles on the side of the bath were removed, and this surface as well as the floor was screeded with cement. The wall tiles were retained and painted.

• To beautify the space, a neat border was painted on the floor and a stencil technique was done on the side of the bath and on the floor.


• Start plotting your floor design with the masking tape from the outside in for better control over the pattern.

• Press the edges of the masking tape down firmly so that paint cannot seep under it.

• Use the wide masking tape to create an even gap between the lines. Remove the tape once you’ve masked off the second line; repeat with the next line.

You will need (other than heaps of patience!)


• masking tape in three widths: 12mm, 24mm and 48mm

• Tjhoko Paint in the colours Matt Black and Sherif’s Stone
