this is what i started out with. i have been moved in for the last couple months and man i love my little one car garage. Before this place we used to live in a apartment. they were really nice but i was always afraid that someone would f^&* with my car. So now im moved into my 30 yr. old house and the garage is my favorite place in the world lol. the first thing i did to it was put up the plywood on the walls as well as the peg board( left side). And then i let my gf paint it. The floor was my next pryority. It had all kinds of oil spots, chips, and all kinds of nasty. This pic was taken right before i started to pressure wash.

this is after the pressure wash with 2600psi and acid cleaner. That acid was crazy. i dont know that cost of it bc i used some of my step dads that he had left over.

these are the materials that i used. i only spent the about 75$ for all of this. I bought 2 cans of "H and C concrete sealer" one for each coat. they were 30$ a peice. I didnt want to use an epoxy bc i was afraid of moisture problems from them. they are known to pell if the concrete can not breath. Also i wanted to keep cost down and be able to be able to touch up spots in the future. I bought all this a sherwin willians paint store.

after i pressured washed and acid cleaned it i let it dry for a couple days. finally i was ready to put down my first layer. i brussed in the around the walls so i could just roll it on all at once.

just make sure you dont pull this number..lol i was doing this as a joke btw.
HAHAHAHA the real funny thing is that we were not thinking and my girlfriend put that garage door down just enough so it wouldnt touch the floor with the wet paint so we could take the funny photo. well... my garage door opener will not go back up until it fully closes. lol and i couldnt close it bc it would hit the wet paint . so i really DID trap myself in there for about 15 mins. lol

i loved the way it came out especially for how much i payed for it. The stain that i used does seem to be very durable and goes on pretty thick. i pulled a jack arcoss it today with even a little scratch on it. i was skeptical before i got that stuff but now i would feel comfortable using a engine hoist or something like that on there. btw if you have a really slick or fine cement floor i would recommend some kinda grit additve for the paint. my floor was real course so i dont have a slick or slipping problem.
hope this will help somebody out in the future
