Affordable path update: stenciled tiles

How clever are my customers-turned-friends Kate and Jordan with their DIY makeover. They are recently married and have just bought their first home. Their side path was old terra-cotta tiles that were in good condition, just not the look they were going for.

They got a quote to retile this side area and it was over $10k but with Berger Paints Jet Dry Rapid Tread paint and Cutting Edge Stencils they have transformed this area for under $300. What a saving and how wonderful does it look.

You can buy Berger paints at Bunnings or Paint Inspirations. It’s around $90 for 4 litres and is quick drying for high traffic areas. 

Jordan and Kate selected the Santa Ana tile stencil. You can select different sizes so choose the one that matches your tile dimensions.

 I previously painted my old concrete lounge room floor (before we renovated) with Berger Jet Dry and it lasts forever and feels wonderful) - I just used white but wanted to comment that I had no problems at all with the paint peeling. It lasted years and years and included a high traffic area. 

My white painted floor even made it into a magazine so it much have been good :) 

Well done Kate and Jordan! Your side path looks amazing ❤️

Do you have old tiles that could do with a spruce up?
