How to create your own terrazzo print

If you're a fan of the trend for terrazzo, this tutorial from Rust-Oleum will be of interest...

Terrazzo Print

Step 1


Terrazzo piece 1
Take your chosen shade of Rust-Oleum Chalky Finish Furniture Paint for the base (we used Chalk White) and stir thoroughly before use.

Paint the top, sides and front of the MDF sheet with a roller and leave this to dry. Chalky Finish Furniture Paint is perfect for MDF as there’s no need to prime. You may require a second coat.

Step 2

To create your stencil, place the sticky back plastic on the cutting mat and begin to cut out a terrazzo design with a stanley knife. If needed, print out a picture of terrazzo and used this as a guide.

Step 3

Stick your stencil to the MDF, ensuring it’s secure. Take your remaining Rust-Oleum Chalky Finish Furniture Paint shades and paint in your design.

We chose Rust-Oleum Chalky Finish Furniture Paint in Ink Blue, Belgrave and Duck Egg.

Personalise the Clever Cube to match your project. We painted the top two sections of the cube (and the wall brackets) with Rust-Oleum Chalky Finish Furniture Paint in Belgrave. We also attached hooks for additional compact organisation!
