Modern Ranch Reno: Half Bathroom Flooring Done Cheap and Easy- Our $50 Makeover

In our Modern Ranch Reno we have three different bathrooms. We have the kids bathroom, we have this half bathroom by the office, and we have the master bathroom. We have spent a good amount of our budget throughout the house and on other projects that have had more priority at this time. But I was tired of looking at my plain bathroom and wanting to change up a few things to make it a little bit more fun and a little bit more my style. For under $50 I was able to make over our half bathroom flooring and it changed everything!! I’m really excited to share all the details with you. Here is a little sneak peek.

Before I share more details I wanted to show you what the bathroom looked like when we moved in. This bathroom had a nasty pull chain toilet and green wood paneling. The bathroom vanity was in decent shape but it was an orangey wood color and I didn’t love the fact that you really noticed the white bowl.


We removed the wood paneling and also changed out the toilet for something a little more current and a little bit newer. I spray-painted the bathroom vanity white and now it looks good as new.


The vanity painted white.

The bathroom looked way better but I still wanted the bathroom to look a bit more my style. Painting the floor changed everything about this bathroom.

This is what the floor looked like before.

After I painted and stenciled the floor tiles:

And yes my toe is painted black.

I shared the full tutorial over on the Home Depot Blog and you can find the full tutorial HERE but here are a few things that I used for this project.

The paint I used was the Rust-oleum chalk paint.

The paint I used was the Rust-Oleum Charcoal color for the base color.

For the stencil I found it online. First, I measured my tile then searched for that certain size of tile stencil.

For the white chalk paint I used Rust-Oleum White Linen to stencil on top of the Charcoal chalk paint.

For the rest of the tutorial and also the list of the rest of the products I used for my DIY painted and stenciled my bathroom flooring, visit the Home Depot Blog HERE.

A few more after pictures of how the bathroom turned out.

I found these framed artwork I found at Home Goods.

I am very excited on how my $50 flooring makeover turned out. My bathroom now is more my style and has way more character.

Let's be besties!

Yay!! 250px

    Looks great! Does the paint hold up after people walk on it a lot?

    Well, that’s a fantastic idea! That looks amazing. Mind if I ask how it’s holding up? I have an ugly bathroom too….

      So far it’s held up wonderfully! NO major scratches or chips or anything!
