How I Painted My Vinyl Floor

 

how to paint vinyl kitchen floor

Let me explain that my vinyl floor is about 15-20 years old.  If I ruin it I don’t have much to lose.
I mopped the floor with a little dish soap, Mr. Clean and warm water.  I rinsed the floor until the water was clean and soap free. This took about 6 moppings.
After the floor dried, I wiped it down with TSP (Trisodium phosphate). The TSP helps to clean, degrease, and dull the finish of the floor. (I also used TSP when I painted shellacked baseboard and knotty pine

how to paint vinyl flooringAfter the floor was dry from all the cleaning, I started taping  off  the baseboard with Scotch Blue painter’s tape.

 

primer vinyl flooring The fridge and stove had been moved to the center of the room temporarily.  I used an oops gray primer.

 

Mythic Paint Vinyl Floor I like to use these skinny rollers. They allow you to get closer to the edge.

 

roll paint on vinyl floor In my opinion they also waste less paint during clean up.

 

painted vinyl floor After I painted two coats of primer, I painted a coat of Mythic Exterior (satin).  Hindsight, I should have painted two coats of gray at this time.

 

pattern for vinyl floor I decided that I wanted my squares to be made up of 9 of the little squares of my original floor. That made my large squares about 18×18 inches. I folded some newspapers to be that size and laid them out on the floor to see how the squares were going to land and to see a pattern.

 

100_8585 Because I have three cute little furbabies and I didn’t want any little hairs mixing in with my paint, I got creative with my leaf blower.  The floor did not have any dirt on it, and no visible pet hair, but I wanted to make sure.

 

Scotch Blue on vinyl floor I taped off the squares and cut in the base coat (gray) to get a clean line.

 

Scotch Blue Painter's tape (vinyl floor) After the first blue squares dried, I taped and painted their “neighbors”.  The Scotch Blue tape I used during this process was for “delicate” surfaces since my paint was not cured entirely. It worked fabulously!  I will definitely use this tape a LOT.
disclaimer: I did receive my tape for free, but I would never say I love it if I don’t

 

Purdy painted my vinyl floor I didn’t roll the blue squares, I used a nice wide Purdy paint brush.  I highly recommend something to kneel on. I used my garden kneeler. (after the third day!)

 

paw prints on my vinyl floor Throwing this photo in just in case you missed it the first time around. That would be Louie’s (grand-dog) cute little blue foot prints!

 

painter's tape vinyl floor To get my blue squares to match up, I extended my tape to the edge of the neighbor square. The part you see on the right is where I touched up, that’s why it’s wet.

 

painted vinyl (kitchen) floor This is when the paint is still slightly damp.  I ended up doing a second coat on the blue, by painting very close to the edge, but not taping. After I did that, I decided the gray also would be better with a second coat.

painted floor white cabinets I painted the backsplash area as a temporary fix until I install a backsplash. At this time, I am not sure what kind of backsplash I will install. EDITED TO ADD: Would you like to  see my board and batten back splash?

 

blue beadboard painted floor If you scroll up, you’ll see that this wall was white. I didn’t like the way the kitchen table looked against the white wall, so I painted it the same blue as the floor.

I won two gallons of Mythic Paint from the DIY Club monthly contest. Mythic Paint has not compensated me in any way for this post otherwise. In my honest opinion this paint is fantabulous!  I love the way it glides on.  From their website:
Mythic® paint is a non-toxic, ultra low odor paint that provides the durability and coverage you expect from a premium paint without the off-gassing VOC’s and cancer-causing toxins that emit years after drying. Stronger, safer, smarter paint®. Now that’s a breath of fresh air.
Being a non-toxic paint isn’t generally that important to me, but after EVERY one of the three furbabies walked through the paint I was glad to know that the paint was safe.  I also enjoyed the ultra low odor,  I seriously smelled NOTHING. I also noticed that this paint did not gunk up my paint brush. The process took about 5 days. After each coat, I placed my paint brush in a baggie. When I did the next coat, the brush was like I just started with a clean brush. When I was finished, the paint cleaned up really easily from the paint brush and roller.
I probably should have gotten a semi-gloss sheen since I was painting a floor, but the satin sheen is the LOOK I was going for. I have not sealed this floor. Granted, it’s only been painted about a week, but so far so good.  It does seem to get dirty pretty easily, but it mops up nicely. I had quite a bit of traffic in the first week, due to Thanksgiving, and the floor did not scratch, or knick.   Because I did everything by the book, I guess I’ll never know if it was the prep, the paint, or both.
The downside of this paint would be the cost. Being an unemployed junker, and DIY maven, I would never have been able to afford this paint. However, if you can afford it, or if you have a special need to use it due to it’s non-toxicity (if you’re pregnant, or have small children) I highly recommend Mythic paint.
About the DIY Club, you may have seen my post last week about the fact that I am now a Resident Blogger.  It’s my job to spread the word about the monthly contest. The December 2010 contest starts on the 2nd. The prize package is huge, believe me I know firsthand. You must use a product from one of the sponsors to be eligible to win. What are you waiting for? Get busy, create something, and link up to the party! Be sure to tell ‘em gail sent ya!
Just a couple of more pictures for the WOW factor!

Please let me know if you paint your floor!  If you have any questions, leave a comment, or shoot me an email. I’ll try to help.
EDITED TO ADD October 7, 2011 It’s been almost a year and my floor is holding up so well.  There are a few spots that have some paint where I was crafting in the kitchen.  I am unable to scrape the paint off, but it’s really easy to touch up those spots with the blue or gray that I used.

Edited to add: After over 2 years the floor was still holding up great, but I decided to change up the blue squares to a dark gray. LOVE it!

  4. Oh my….you are taking “painting the kitchen” to a whole new level! I love it. I am so happy that you did this painting the floor tutorial. I am going back and forth with the master bath. I am hoping a I work enough hours at the hospital to do my floors. Is that not sad that home decor motivates me to get up at 5 and head to the hospital to work? Oh..that and helping people. :)I do what I do. :)

    Cheers~
    e

  5. GREAT JOB! I love it! I have wanted to paint my floor for a long time but just haven’t gotten around to it.

  7. Gail this looks so incredible. I hate my kitchen floor. Thanks for showing us that it can be done.

  8. Gail, this is insanely incredible! You really need to get this published in a one of the DIY magazines! Trust me it is nicer than some of the projects they ever publish. I will keep my eyes open for all and any contests for DIY kitchen makeovers because this is a definite winner!

  10. Hey lady, the kitchen looks fabulous! I know how much hard work you put into it, but the before and after pics show it was worth it. :)

    Hugs

  11. Great job Gail, the lighter colors will brighten your winter days. Not sure I could have tackled a project like that…..hubby and I are going to make a few renovations to the chicken coop, hopefully I don’t mess that up!

    Yours is great looking and you did a good job on the tutorial as well.
    As always.

  20. This is me giving you a STANDING OVATION!! Wow, amazing and beautiful and gorgeous and incredible and WOW!! Love love love that floor.

  21. Wow! What a huge change! I think the thing that stood out the most is that blue wall and the painted floor.

  22. You sure put a lot of hard work and effort into this project! Good for you!!! It looks so lovely and airy!

  23. Oh wow- so gorgeous!! Love that shade of blue with white. Your kitchen looks so big and airy!

  24. I love everything!
    I agree about the white wall. It looks much better now and your furniture doesn’t disappear.

    I love the floor. It looks great!

    You have been BUSY!

  25. It turned out GREAT Gail!!

  26. I LOVE what you did with the floor. And the before and after shots? WOW! What a transformation.

  27. I was so excited to see the final results, and I wasn’t disappointed. The whole kitchen looks so fresh and bright! It cracked me up that you found another use for the blower. I know this was a huge undertaking for you, but really Gail, you out did yourself, it looks fantastic!

  28. AMAZING transformation! Just AMAZING!!!!

    Carmen and the Primcats

  29. Wow, what a big change! You might want to look into appliance paint to get a true white on the stove. For the backsplash, I think blue glass tiles in different shades would be great…wonder what junking stuff could substitute? marbles? broken glass chunks?

  30. I LOVE this. As I commented before, I am using your before and after pictures as inspiration for my mothers kitchen. I am currently writing a plan for the kitchen, but I already posted some before pictures. Take a look if you have a second and maybe give me some ideas:

  31. wow the kitchen re do look AMAZING!! I should save these pics and show my husband.. I have been trying to get him to let me paint out cabinets white.. they are ugly and old and brown.. but still pretty solid. So I asked if we could paint them white.. I thought it would look so nice.. but he looked at me like I was crazy… UGH! haha Maybe if he saw how nice yours look he would get it! LOL

  32. Gail that is stunning! What a transformation. You are making my brain spin with ideas on what I could do with my linoleum floor that I hate.

  33. That’s an amazing transformation!

  34. That looks amazing! Your whole kitchen has turned out so well.

    Congratulations on becoming a resident blogger! They’re lucky to have someone as talented as you.

  35. Wow! It looks great. I am super impressed!

  36. Looks pretty amazing to me!
    Real good job girl!
    Lovely greetings…

  37. WOW, what a fantastic makeover. Well done ;-)

  38. so awesome, I really admire you and your creativity! Your blog is on top of my “must read” list…

  39. That looks awesome. Great job. The entire room now looks so fresh and updated. Way to go!

  40. What an amazing & unbelievable transformation, Gail!!! Love love love everything you did. That blue looks so pretty with the white. I know you are LOVING it!

  41. I really like the whole kitchen. Blue happens to be my favorite color. :) I think the backsplash would look great with beadboard or beadboard wallpaper painted in one of your floor colors. Glass tile would look awesome but it’s pricey. Anyway, enjoy your new kitchen!

  42. amazing transformation!!!

  43. Turned out beautiful. I have painted a couple of floors too. I have never regretted it yet.
    You go girl!
    Debbie

  44. Whoa – what a huge improvement! It looks great!

  45. so clean and beautiful!! very impressed!!

  46. WOW! Wow, wow! I’m so inspired! Fabulous!

  47. Fabulous job, Gail!! I love the grey and blue and white. My favorite decor colours. You should be so proud of yourself for making such a dramatic change.

  48. i painted my vinyl floors about 8 years ago; did a blue and white checkerboard. didn’t have any trouble with the paint coming off all this time. i prepped the same way only i sanded some of the gloss off the vinyl. i love your look

  49. Oh my goodness, such a huge transformation. I am so glad that you shared this. Terry

  50. AMAZING! and kudos for having the patience to paint the floors with fur babies around :)

  51. Oh wow, Gail. What a beautiful transformation! It’s my dream kitchen. I wish my husband would go for “all white” but then again, since he does the cooking I think he might be ‘smart’ to protest white everything. So, I’ll have to enjoy your dreamy kitchen from afar. :)

    Great job! The floor looks awesome!
    Roeshel

  52. That is one crazy good transformation. The cabinets, backsplash, beadboard and floor are so incredible. I had to look at it a few times! I love it and know you must too!
    Lacy

  53. You know I have to put your floor in the PoPP Spotlight… it’s too cool!

  54. WOW, what a great job!! Looks so great! Love the cabinets, too. We painted our cabinets white, too, and it made SUCH a difference.

  55. Holey vinyl floor…. amazing transformation! I can’t wait to hear how well it wears over the long haul. This is such a fabulous option for outdated floors in great shape!

    Wonderful kitchen transformation.. wow.

  57. Your floor looks amazing, seriously great! I bet you are thrilled with the results!

  58. That looks AWESOME!! LoVe those little paw prints :) Nice JoB!

  59. You are freakin amazing, woman! What a job! What a beautiful job! (And I love the choice of color.)

  60. II’ve bookmarked all of these because I’m endeavoring to makeover my kitchen–mostly the cabinets–white. It’s such a daunting task!! I wonder, why did you sand between coats of painting the cabinet doors? I would love to talk to you more about this because this project intimidates the heck out of me, and I have a teeny tiny kitchen so I’m being a big baby! :) Amie amiedanny@msn.com

  61. I might have to try this in our bathroom. I just recently painted my cabs. I wish I had only done the outside. It was a ton of work, but I love the fresh white cabinets!

  62. Don’t know how I missed this post but I am sorry I did….beautiful…just beautiful! Great job as always

  63. Your redo is great! I painted my floor too… Check it out if you like at greenbuggg/blogspot.com/

  64. That truly is a WOW transformation!! :)

    You must have some major patience!! I could not have painted that floor.

  65. Your floor makeover looks so refreshing! Just in time for the spring season. And it’s amazing how you have it designed that way. At first glance, you’ll think it was an installed blue-vinyl, but no, it was a DIY vinyl designs. I’m now looking forward to trying the same thing on our living room.

  66. I just started researching painting my floor – thanks for the terrific post! It was a long winter, how is the paint holding up after a few moths of hard use?

  67. You truly transformed that kitchen to be all it can be from floor to cabinet to blacksplash! Amazing. I LOVE your floor!

  68. I love this! I have some ugly vinyl floor in the kitchen and my bathroom and this is an easy fix. Got any ideas on how to fix tiles that are coming up from the floor? lol! You did a beautiful job restoring this kitchen. It was a hot mess and now it’s just charming!

  69. I just featured this loveliness here at my blog. Feel free to grab a featured button on my left side bar :o)

  70. You are my hero! I got online today to try and figure out what to do with my floors and this is perfect!! Can.Not.Wait. to try this!

  71. Youre an absolute GENIOUS!(How many times have I said that now?:)) Seriously, Im bookmarking this. It just may be what happens to my cruddy old kitchen floor until someday it hopefully gets replaced. This is such a great alternative! And I cant believe the before and afters of your kitchen.Its so bright and cheery now. You must love walking in there every morning. I would!:)

  72. Hi Gail-

    I have painted wood floors before and know what a huge undertaking this floor must have been – especially in your kitchen the heart of the home where you can’t just shut it down for a long time. It came out great – your entire kitchen did – paint really does make a huge difference.

    My best- Diane

  73. I am now reinspired by your photo’s and directions. I just wish I had the money to do anything to my house. I tore up the carpet in my hallway and one bedroom, that I use for my office and was just horrified. Chipped linoleum tiles with paint splattered all over it. So, I popped up the tiles to get to the black glue stuff they used to stick the tiles on with. And if I do manage to clean that off, don’t know if the Terrazzo will look decent or not. Hallway is even worse, it has that sheeting vinyl or what ever you call it and I am not getting it up like I thought I could… ugh. HELP?

    Sheryll & Critters (humid Jax, FLA), so I know how much work and time it takes to paint a kitchen and especilly the cabinets. I did that to my mom’s large kitchen years ago. And I almost forgot to ask why you want anything different for your backsplash? Kiltz Original will cover and protect behind your kitchen sink, it even covers formica.

  74. Sheryll- to remove anything that is glue based, try heat. And old iron or an old hair dryer may be helpful.
    You can see my backsplash here: http://www.myrepurposedlife.net/2011/01/board-batten-backsplash-reveal.html

  75. The floor is so amazing. It is good that there are now paints that are not hazardous to our health. It is great that you were able to transform your kitchen without spending too much. Great post!

  76. All I can say is,one hell of a terrific job !

  77. I want to make a dance studio. Do you have any idea’s about what flooring I should use ? I would be tearing up the carpets and I will be left with concrete. Anyone that has any idea’s..it would be very much appreciated,and not sure how to put mirrors up on a very low budget ?

  78. All I can say is,one hell of a terrific job !

  79. All I can say is,one hell of a terrific job !

  80. angel rose–thanks! As far as the floor goes, I’d keep the concrete for now. There are such great paints/stains for concrete these days.

    Has anyone tried Linoleum Lacquer? http://www.linoleumlacquer.com I read about it on another blog but want to see if anyone else has tried before I plop down the cash for it. Apparently, you only need one coat so even if its a little pricier I only have to buy one product so it makes sense.

  82. You are straight up talent! I wish I could somehow do that with my old carpet, haha but really. It looks great and puts a whole new cute twist to the area. Love the puppy prints too :)

  83. I painted my vinyl floors 3 yrs. ago but it didn’t last too long. So I painted them again this time applying a poly over the paint that made the difference. Now I am getting ready to embark on applying a paper bag finish to them. Only b/c I am tired of the look and can’t afford what I really want. Have done a ton of research and I am looking forward to the new look!

  84. This is an amazing post for vinyl floor.I was looking for someone who can guide me for vinyl floor painting then I found this awesome post which describe each and every thing.

  85. Beautiful Gail! I wish I could paint my apartment floor… it looks worse than your before… imagine multiple colors of vinyl with weird pattern!

  86. I tried painting my floor and it all started flaking off. I used primer, what could have gone wrong?

  87. jamie,
    all I can say is if you skipped any of the steps I outlined your paint may not stick. Each of the steps is very important.
    Paint will only stick if it has a rough surface to adhere. Flaking paint sounds like your paint wasn’t able to adhere.
    I’m sorry your outcome was less than perfect. :(

    Did you cover the floor with a satin poly finish? It would help make it last even longer.

  90. I LOVE the look of your kitchen!!

  91. I was thrilled with this article. I came up with the idea of painting my old laundry room floor by sanding, cleaning, painting and finishing but every paint salesperson I spoke to told me it couldn’t be done. Now I am definitely going to do it! NRN

  92. thank you thank you thank you for this inspiration! I didn’t know you could paint vinyl flooring! This HAS to be cheaper than replacing with handscraped hardwood flooring, right? RIGHT? LOL.

  93. This is so inspirational — I am wondering how its hold up to traffic?
    I want to do both the Master bathroom and the main bath of our house. Its just not in the budget to rip out the 21 year old vinyl. Painting it seem like a perfect plan as a temp. improvement.

    • gail@myrepurposedlife.net says:

      Thank you. It has been over two years and is holding up great. I have updated the color. It is now a dark gray and a light gray. So happy i did it.
      Have a great weekend
      Gail

  94. Valinda says:

    Did you use a clear top coat on the painted floor? Then how would you clean it in order to keep the paint fresh and shiny, not streaked? I have been looking at staining my vinyl as the shine is gone and I think it will stain. I am trying to find a green to stain it with. Then I would need a clear shine on it.
    Your floor looked great.

  95. What a great looking job. Neat and clean. I am gearing up to paint my kitchen floor but will have to resort to a free flowing design that allows for errors. I know I can never get squares even.

    • gail@myrepurposedlife.net says:

      Thank you Julia… so happy you found My Repurposed Life! I had those little squares to help me. :) It’s been years, and I still love it, especially now that I updated the color.

      I appreciate you stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment.

  96. Really cute! Reminds me of my dear Granny’s cheery kitchen. I would have left the little paw prints on the floor, though, just because they’re adorable.

  97. I have stuck down lifting tiles with grouting cement and replaced broken ones with ones I found in the cupboard that are not quite the same shade so the floor is covered ready to be painted. In my case the floor is the conservatory rather than the kitchen and will get a lot of wear. You have given me ideas for painting my brown kitchen cabinets. A really great effort.

  98. Nina Sanford says:

    I’ve been debating what to do with my own vinyl flooring for a couple years now. I love this idea and it can be geared to whatever color you choose. This is probably the easiest and least spendy. Thanks for sharing. It gives me hope. :)

  99. Hi Gail. Did you use oil-baed or latex floor paint and primer? I have googled and see all kinds of different suggestions as to what will/won’t work. Also, I know you said you didn’t use poly over the top – was it just so you’d have the option of changing colors? My family is rough on everything and I’m afraid without a top coat it won’t last. I am planning to paint and then stencil over our vinyl kitchen floor and entry way. Would greatly appreciate your input!

    Thank you :)

    • gail@myrepurposedlife.net says:

      Heidi

      I did use water base latex paint, after lots and lots of preparation! :) I don’t like shiny floors, so that is why I chose not to poly. Also, I don’t like the way poly feels under my feet. I think if I were going to seal it, I would use Minwax Polycrylic instead of oil based polyurethane. Just my two cents.

      good luck! have fun, and I’d love to see your before and after! :)

  100. That kitchen looks so much different in the before and after photos. So pretty and very inspiring. Your hard work most definitely paid off. I liked the blue, but the grey on the floor is so elegant and probably gave the bead board more of a “showcase” look. Well done!!!!!

  101. Awesome! I moved into a house with the family room/office floor painted a checkerboard. I couldn’t figure out how they did such an outstanding job. I’m still not sure how to get the lines straight without vinyl squares for a guide, but you’ve given me hope.

    Question about the low-VOC paint. That’s what I’ve used on all my walls. I made the mistake of using it on furniture and anything I put on top of a horizontal surface sticks and pulls the paint off. I was told the low-VOC isn’t as strong due to lack of chemicals. I can’t believe it worked on a floor? I know you prepped well, but are there other secrets to keeping the floor from damage with all that traffic?

    Thanks for your inspiration!

    • gail@myrepurposedlife.net says:

      Candace,

      I have used the Mythic paint on my kitchen floor and on my entire fireplace and on several pieces of furniture without any problem of the paint being pulled off. It is great paint, but very expensive. When I updated the color of my floor I used Behr paint (my favorite) and it’s held up very well without sealing. I am so glad I didn’t seal my floor, because it’s so easy to change up or touch up if something gets scratched. is it perfect? no, but I can’t replace my floor without taking my cabinets out because my base cabinets sit on layers and layers of sub floor and vinyl floors.

      As long as paint has a good “tooth” to adhere to, it will stick whether it’s on furniture or floors. :)
      good luck, have fun! :)

      gail

  102. Did you use a sealer on top of the paint? I would think the wear and waking and scrapping of heels and other incidents might need a coat of a sealer….

    • gail@myrepurposedlife.net says:

      Nope, Michelle… I didn’t seal it and I haven’t regretted that decision at all. I don’t like the feel of poly under my feet. Plus I don’t like shine. It would be difficult to change the color if I had sealed it.

      I’m not generally one who likes change, but who knows… come spring, maybe I’ll change up the color again. lol

      • Thank you for your quick reply! I’m really looking into a simple refurbish on my ugly kitchen and bathroom vinyl floors. II also have a furbaby kitty and I just hope he keeps off! HAHA. I just found your site and I’m loving all you do.

  103. Great job! Wish I’d have known how to do that at my last house!!!!

  104. Looks good. I see you painted the kitchen floor in 2010 – how is it holding up now in 2014? We are planning to paint vinyl flooring over 350 sq ft in our kitchen and sunroom, but want it to last. Let me know! Thanks, SD

    • gail@myrepurposedlife.net says:

      I had nothing to lose when I did my floor. I hated it, so even if I got an extra year or two, I was fine with it. 3.5 years later, I have updated the color and I’m still thrilled with it. I have gotten a couple of small scratches, but touchups are easy because I didn’t seal my paint. With the proper prep work, you shouldn’t have any issues at all.
