Concrete Floor Overlay Inspired by a Wall in Venice

What does Bob Harris, president of The Decorative Concrete Institute and the star of The Concrete Network's "Floor Me" video series, do in his spare time, when he's not traveling around the world teaching hands-on training seminars, shooting how-to videos, or writing books? What he loves best, of course-getting wildly creative with theme-inspired decorative concrete.

For his latest project-a richly textured, multicolored concrete floor overlay with coordinating concrete baseboards and countertops-the brainstorm began with a deteriorating wall Bob spotted on a trip to Venice, Italy. "When I explain the inspiration for this floor, people absolutely crack up because it looks nothing like the floor," he says. "But it was the layering in the wall that gave me the idea."

Bob applied the overlay to a floor in his DCI office in Temple, Ga., where he can now be reminded of the Old World charm of Venice without leaving home.
