cement style tile stencil project




Here’s what I’ve been up to this week… a cement tile look for a lot less! I created this custom Santa Ana tile look for the entrance to my shed for under $25. All you need is a fabulous stencil and a little black paint.




When we moved to our home 20 years ago,
we were fortunate enough to have a custom garden
 shed on our property, in addition to a nice pool house.

Over the years these two little buildings have gone through lots of transformations as our kids grew
and our needs changed…

and as I’ve mentioned before,
I’ve recently cleaned out and claimed
the shed as my own domain!

A useful she shed

to hold all my extra blogging and gardening supplies.




I have so many plans for this little shed,
and I’ve been spending all my free time
out here in the garden.




The next big project will be to replace
these old doors with a new kind of fancy door 
with glass that I’ve been holding on to.

It'll be painted black with two sidelights 
for extra light inside the shed...

so with that whole vision, 
I also wanted the look of cement tile for the entry.

I found an easy, quick and inexpensive solution 
for me to get this look with just the perfect stencil.

All I needed was the right kind of patio paint and
this whole look was completed in about three hours.




I do plan on sealing it today,
but let me know what you think of this look!

Here are the three simple and inexpensive things
I used to create this look, and
they’re all available on Amazon!




I got the MEDIUM size stencil.





My project used two containers of this paint.




Stencil brushes available on Amazon.

  3. Looks amazing! Would love to do outside. Once you seal it, will it be good considering all the elements? Just wondering..... we live in Wisconsin.

    1. Thank you Karen. I think it should be ok with the elements. Maybe use 2 coats of sealer and recoat every couple of years.
