The $500 Mosaic Tile Look Alike

I'm completely impressed by The DIY Show Off blog's masterful painting technique of her bathroom floor. Using porch paint, painters tape and a doily stencil, she created a highend, custom look with little more than a few hours work. To complete the makeover, DIY Show Off painted horizontal stripes on her walls, purchased a new shower curtain and mirror, and even painted her faucets. On a budget of only $500, she really transformed the space! I love the Andalucian look of this stencil, and although this project must have taken both patience and a steady-hand, the outcome is worth it!

Mosaic tiles can run up to $70.00 a square foot, so painting the floor to get the same look is definitely a great option if you're on a budget. If you're one of the lucky few who doesn't pinch your pennies, the sky is the limit when it comes to tile. Right now, we're seeing a lot of floral mosaic patterns. Currently, these are some of my favorite designs.
