Floor!




























Check out this floor! I love it. We had it stained in the living area of our basement.

For those of you thinking about having a floor done like this, let me say a couple of things. First of all, it cannot be a sealed concrete floor. If your concrete has been sealed, it costs quite a bit to remove that sealant. Second, the fumes are horrible. If I were living in the house and had this done, I'd probably move out for a couple of days! VERY FUMEY. (is that a word?) The only maintenance is to wax it every now and then. He said a gallon of was will last us a lifetime. I hope it's a long lifetime! And the wax is a paste type wax.


We still have to grout it. We're going to do that on our own. And after grouting you can't walk on it for 72 hours! We could use a break anyway, so we'll grout it, then take a break. What do you think?

  1. Love the look of it, Cindy! Btw, I doubt I can make it up for the woolen festival this year. My oldest is giving a college recital that weekend, and we'll likely be out of town. Yeah for the recital; boo for missing the festival. :/

    1. Well Sorry you won't be able to come this year, but it's important that you be there for that recital.

  2. Thanks for the words of warning. We still don't know what we are gong to do with our basement floor. We had talked about staining it. I'm not certain if it is sealed.
    What are you grouting? The cracks/crevices that are put in it?
    It looks beautiful!
