It pretty much just poured out of the sprayer and made a huge mess! The first arrow on the left is where I started, the fridge will sit there. I panicked and just got a paint brush and brushed the whole area. Then I tried "going in a circular motion" like the instructions said. That's where I got all of the curly Q's. Nice, right??
We took back the dark brown stain, and bought 1-part epoxy garage floor paint, in a plain 'ole concrete gray color.
OMG! This looks soooo much better! Immediately, I started to calm down. I can definitely live with this! It just looks so clean!
You can see our dirty foot prints, it's all just dust from sanding and sawing. The floor was completely dry. And... you can see that I kinda need to finish.
The plan is to run a piece of painters tape down the left side and finish it off with a nice neat line. We read all kinds of bad reviews on painting garage floors. A lot of them complained about hot tire pick up, but we shall see. Pretty sure hubby plans on putting a rug down where the car will be parked.
Who knows how it will hold up, but I could NOT look at that mustard/brown poopy colored floor any longer! This is soooo much better!! We still aren't sure if we are going to finish the rest of the garage. The plan is to see how it holds up. If using a rug for the car works, we'll probably paint the rest.
So, there you have it! I wouldn't recommend DIY staining your concrete floors.... If you want it really bad hire a pro. I guess we didn't want it bad enough.... nah, we're just too cheap! :)
Seriously... it's just a garage...
