The concrete was in good shape not rough and the paint that I used had a satin finish which makes it feel nice and smooth under your feet. Well girls I did it - my completed painted concrete floors. Took me the best part of the day. Started out by cutting in and painting all the skirting boards as they were an off white. With a roller and 8 litres of concrete paint this is the end result. The paint was very easy to apply and I hope you agree that the end result is truly beautiful. What a great alternative to expensive flooring and having to worry about staining beautiful carpets. For now I think this will be a great option throughout summer and I think I will now do the same to my bedroom. Yes you guessed it the master bedroom has that revolting blue carpet too.
