DIY Painted Bathroom Floors with Rust-Oleum

If you want to learn how to beautify your outdated tiled floors for less than $100, keep reading!  Here’s what my bathroom floors looked like BEFORE I partnered with Rust-Oleum and painted them with the new Rust-Oleum HOME Floor Coating. The grout lines were stained and the tiles were not my style.

Here is what the floors looked like after I used Rust-Oleum’s new HOME Floor Coating 2-part system.

In case you want to try this miraculous floor paint, here’s everything you need to know:

  • First, clean your floors.  Unlike many floor paints, this floor paint does NOT require sanding prior to use.  Just a good clean to remove any wax. No stripping, sanding or priming required! Rust-Oleum recommends Krud Kutter Original Cleaner/Degreaser for tile, vinyl and linoleum – click here.
  • Make sure you have all the tools necessary for painting your floors:  I used frog tape, a foam roller, and you will need a paint tray (I used an old plate because it’s what I had on hand).
  • Then, start painting!  First, I applied the Base Coat of Rust-Oleum HOME Floor Coating in “steam grey” matte. Click here to purchase.  
  • I applied 2 coats (I let it dry 6 hours between coats) and still used less than 1 quart of paint.
  • When you are finished painting your floors and they have sufficiently dried, you can need to apply the Top Coat for protection.  The Top Coat is available for purchase here.
  • Rust-Oleum HOME Floor Coating is also available in kits . You can purchase 1 quart of the Base Coat and 1 quart of the Top Coat in either Matte or Semi-gloss.

How I created the triangle pattern:

  • With this floor paint, it is easy to add a stencil pattern on top with another color, BEFORE applying the top coat.
  • I created my own pattern using frog tape and painted the triangles using the Rust-Oleum HOME Floor Coating Base Coat in “aged grey” – click here.

After I finished the floors, I decided to paint the tile that runs up the wall in my bathroom (same as the floor tile) in “aged grey.” For best results, I recommend two thin coats of the Top Coat on the vertical tiles.

I am VERY impressed with this product.  So far, it is holding up perfectly and has 100% transformed our bathroom.  I DEFINITELY recommend it and would FOR SURE use it again!
