A DIY and home décor enthusiast has hit back at trolls for calling her painted bathroom tiles “ugly” while giving an update on how it’s held up after six months.
Janelle, who goes by prairiestylehome on platform TikTok, had been on the fence about whether or not to take the plunge and upscale her off-white tiled floors.
But after practising the painting technique and ignoring the haters advising her against the move, she went for it – documenting the whole journey from start to finish.
Now, half a year later, she’s returned to give an update on how the paint has held up.
“Six months ago I painted my bathroom floor tiles to mixed reviews. Some were excited and some weren’t quite as excited about it,” she told viewers.
Over footage of herself painting her primed white tiles with a chocolate brown colour, she added some of the comments she had received when she initially undertook the painting project.

At the time, one person had said: “Looks cheap and tacky,” as another called it “so so stupid” and questioned why she’d done it.
“This is THE ugliest thing have ever seen,” [sic] another had complained.
While a fourth said it would look like “cr*p” within a few days, warning her of the mistake she apparently made.
Janelle continued to tell followers: “I promised I would keep you updated on how they were holding up, so here they are today.”
