Hey guys!!! I’m super excited to show you what I’ve been working on to upgrade our shop and garage floors!
Whit and I are forever fans of the Rust-Oleum Epoxy Shield floor coating. So much that – I applied it to my previous garage, Whit applied it to hers and now, I’m applying it to my shop and garage in our new home! You can check out the first time that I applied it HERE!
This is a super easy and inexpensive way to really give your garage and/or shop a nice upgrade! Here’s just how easy it is!
Next, you just pour the etching salt (comes with the kit) into a watering can filled with 2 gallons of water. Let the salt dissolve and then pour it over a 4’x4′ area. Start at the back of the garage so you can work your way outside. You will hear a little fizz sound when the etching salt and water hit the concrete – it’s cleaning your floor 🙂 Just use an iron bristle brush and lightly scrub over the 4’x4′ area. Rinse with water and squeegee it out and move to the next 4’x4′ area and repeat until you do the entire floor. It’s a VERY EASY process!
Once the floor is completely dry (mine took about 45 minutes to dry) you can mix the epoxy! Your kit will have a part A and part B in separate gallons. *Note – I used 1 gallon of each for a 1 car garage and it was plenty. If you are doing a 2 car, use 2 kits and 3 for a 3 car garage. It’s easy to mix, just pour part B into a large bucket and then pour part A into part B. Mix it all together and let it sit for the designated time according to the instructions. I had to wait 30 minutes – it is based on the temperature in your area.
Finally, just using a roller brush, you will paint on a 4’x4′ area and then immediately sprinkle the paint chips over that area (paint chips are also included in the kit). In this picture, you can see that I finished an area to the right and worked my way to the left and I’m sprinkling the paint chips. You can use as many as you prefer, there is plenty to cover the flooring.
This is the perfect weekend project for spring!! Not only does it look nice, it’s so much easier to keep the floor clean! My husband LOVES this flooring too and can’t wait to apply it to our main garage!
