In a short video, Jess explained that she hated her guest bathroom floors, but re-tiling wasn’t in the budget, so she painted them instead.

Sharing her top tips with her social media followers, the DIY fan began, “I started by vacuuming everything.

“I then used TSP which is a strong cleaner to scrub my floors.”

Jess went on to explain how she then used a sanding block to sand the surface of her tiles, before priming the floor.

For anyone hoping to follow in her creative footsteps, Jess added: “If you’re going to paint your own floors, I highly recommend wearing socks as your fingernails will scratch the paint – I know that from experience.

“I also recommend keeping a vacuum nearby and cleaning it every time you enter and leave the room.”

She then explained how she gave the floor its first coat of paint, before letting it dry and adding a second.

In a second clip, she added that she used a small brush to fill in the grout lines.

“I then finished it off with not one but two coats of triple-thick polyurethane to keep my floors looking great for years,” she continued.

And it’s no surprise that the comments section was flooded with messages from impressed DIY fans.

“Good job. Looks fabulous. Love it,” enthused one.

A second praised: “Love love love this!!!” while a third added: ‘Nice job!

Another commented: “You did a great job. Glad you shared some potential ideas. Thanks x”
