I had a crack in my kitchen tiles – thanks to some cheap paint and DIY I made them good as new | The Sun

WE all have a few cracks and tears somewhere in our home, most of the time if we can’t fix them we do our best to cover them up and move on. 

But one woman revealed she has a massive crack in her kitchen floors and there was simply no way to hide it.  

Janelle shared the broken cracked kitchen tiles she had in a TikTok video online. 

The broken tiles had gotten so bad the DIY fan claimed her dogs had started hiding their treats in the cracks. 

She said: “Mango is able to hide treats in there.”

Like most of us Janelle didn’t have enough money to replace her entire kitchen floor so she settled for a quick DIY transformation.

She said: “Here's how I fixed these broken tiles in our kitchen."

The DIY fan’s first step was to sand down the cracks in her floor so they were smooth. 

Janelle uses a sanding machine for this, but if you are willing to get your hands dirty some sanding paper will work just as well.

Next she filled her cracked with Bondo filler.

She said: “I sanded it, strapped a mask on, and filled the cracks with Bondo."

Next you want to wait for the crack to dry and sand it down some more. 

Janelle then painted over her new makeshift tile but she still didn’t have a seamless look, as her other tiles featured a marble print. 


Janelle grabbed a paint brush and started mimicking the design on her other kitchen floor tiles. 

She said: “I added veins to match the rest of the floors, sealed it, and then I called it a day.”

Afterwards you wouldn’t even be able to tell there were any cracks on the floor at all. 

Janelle “Now the broken tiles blend in seamlessly.”

The kitchen tile video racked up over 124,000 views online and people were amazed that the DIY fan had taken on such a tough  challenge. 

One user said: “Woow I would love to do this, but I’m a little bit scared of a great job.”
