Bill Medlin of Decorative Concrete Plus & Heartland Elite Crete, LLC, submitted this project of a stained concrete floor. Medlin provides details of how the floor was colored.

"The customer wanted an acid stained basement floor but the concrete was in bad shape and would not have produced a good variegated color with acid," says Medlin. "So we did an overlay and I played around with some combinations of stains to achieve an acid stain look without using acid or dye."

"The floor is a white skim coat, taped tile pattern, beige spray coat knocked down with a magic trowel, then a highlight spray of charcoal gray, followed by an antique coat of desert beige," he says. "The seal coat is a water based sealer poured on the floor and smoothed out with a squeegee. The 2nd seal coat was rolled on."
