This project is a polished and stained floor in a residential basement. After an acid stain was applied, the owner changed their mind about the color they wanted, so the floor was tinted with a dye. Dye was used instead of additional acid stain because polished floors can not take multiple layers of acid stains without ending up with a very defective polish due to etching. Another challenge was the heavy coating of paint on the floor from when the painters sprayed the wall paint on. They did not protect the floor, so to avoid having very ugly edges, the edge was stained with a slightly different color and sealed with a terrazzo sealer. It is very subtle, and adds a touch of class to the floor.
