Almost Acid Stain Concrete

When Gena and I first talked about replacing the carpet, she found pictures of acid stained concrete.  Veritable works of art.

I was so excited!

Then I talked to someone at the paint store and read the directions to the prep product. If the concrete has been treated in any way, looks like we can’t stain it.

When we got done pulling up the carpet in my room,  I liked the look and almost left it the way it was.  Thought about putting down a sealer to protect the floor.  But I had bought the enamel and had a good plan B.  So we moved forward.

But I thought I’d share what the floor could have been.
