I just spent the last 5 days working on painting my basement floor. Well, it was 5 days about 7 days ago.
On the first day, I cleaned it with muriatic acid.
That took me into the 3rd day, when I "sponged" 3 darker colours onto the base coat. I used a sheepskin-covered tool, rather than a sponge. Removed the tape.
Voila! I make it sound so easy, but my body is aching, as though I've been weeding the garden for the past week! Shows how out of shape I am!
My new studio floor is (almost) ready to receive the bits of thread and fabric that will eventually litter it! It's still going to be awhile, as I would like the floor to cure. I will post another photo once I am officially moved in!
