We've been busy busy busy getting ready for our store opening on May 11th! Once the floor was sanded and cleaned, we let it dry and sealed it with waterproof concrete sealer. Originally we were going to paint it with a concrete epoxy paint, but while reading the instructions on the epoxy paint, discovered that we could not use epoxy over the concrete sealer. Good thing we read the instructions!
After some debating, and a few unsuccessful phone calls to paint stores, we thought why not paint the floor with Chalk Paint®?! Yes, Chalk Paint® can be used on floors and coated with a laquer that is especially designed to be used over it. So we gave it a try...
So far its a work in progress! We're blending two colors (Old Violet and Paris Grey) to get a sued/textured look. The white cracks will get painted next. Two quarts covered about 300 sq ft nicely! Stay tuned to see the finished results...
Oh, and we've been busy painting chairs for the studio! Each chair is being painted in a different color of Chalk Paint® - check out these gorgeous colors! And the painting party was a lot of fun too!
