Willowcrest- Tiles at the entrance hall

Good morning followers!!!!
 
Today, I would like to show you how I did the tile floor at the entrance hall....
all you need is:
cardboard
varnish
smoothing cement
coffee (no... not for you!!!)
 
First I painted a piece of cardboard with black varnish.... I just needed a very samll part of this cardboard but I'm sure that I will find some other projects for the rest of it!
 
 
I cut a pattern of the floor (also on a piece of thin cardboard) and marked the center of it...
 
 
You need some "tiles" cut again from cardboard:
tiny black squares: 0,5x 0,5 cm
big white squares: 2 x 2 cm
and long white tiles: 0,5 x 2 cm
 
 
I started in the center of the floor just by gluing the tiles with tacky glue to the cardboard pattern...
 
 
 
 
be sure to keep a small gap between the tiles...
 
 
 
 
at the end I varnished the complete floor with transparent varnish...
 
 
 
 
as soon as the floor was dry I used some smoothing cement to fill the gaps between the tiles
 
and finally I used some coffee to make the floor a little bit old and shabby... and your house smells great!!!!
 
 
 
 
 
 
So, I hope you like this little tutorial and if you try it I wish you great success!!!
 
Hugs, Lina
