Recycled Painted Linoleum Kitchen Glitter Decoupaged Floor

 I decided to update my icky vinyl peel and stick tile floor in my kitchen....you know those 12 inch peel the paper of the back and stick em' kind?

I painted the floor using a porch and floor paint.Let Dry. Printed some roses off on my computer, and some are wallpaper wallies I got off of Ebay.

I then stenciled the floor using a floor/ wall stencil from Hobby Lobby. I did it the homefaker way using spray paint....WORKED AWESOME, and soooo much easier on my back!

Then I added a large container of glitter to a clear epoxy 2 part coating I got from Menards.Rolled it on with a roller with an extension rod...again soooo much easier on my back!

Let dry 24 hours, and VOILA' a new (really easy to clean) couture kitchen floor...LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

RECESSED SHELVING

This is what happens when it's 30 below, and I have too much time on my hands...



.






I start ripping up walls...This is in my 10 foot by 10 foot kitchen, where I have 3 doors, and 2 windows. There just is no room for all my "pretties. I knew I would find use for that 6 inches between the walls!

If you aer planning a project like this, please check for any wiring first, and only  break thru inside walls, as all outside ones will be packed with useful insulation.

Here is the "after " pictures after wallpapering with that great faux beadboard pattern. All said and done, less than 50 bucks for trim board,white paint, and wallpaper. I GOT THIS!






                Table full of  all the pretties from my shelves...yep I may be a hoarder....
