DIY Faux Concrete Floor


What do you do when you want the minimalist look of raw concrete flooring, but you're stuck with peel and stick-type vinyl floor tile? Pull it up and replace it? Consider the weight and logistics of pouring actual concrete? Those are probably both a big NO if you're a renter. So how about just paint it?

Depending on how agreeable your landlord is and what condition the tile is currently in, this could be a really great solution. Who wants to deal with scraping up tile or adhesives when you can mix up some grey paint and create a faux concrete look.

Our friends at hindsvik did exactly that.
