half way

Last week, we floated the concrete with a thin layer of cement that smoothed it all out and covered all the rough spots and holes of nails from the carpet.

In the middle of the guys floating, I decided we should rip out the linoleum in the bathroom and stain the concrete in there as well. I told you its dangerous to paint the hall...

So that's exactly what we did!
Here's a shot just after we ripped up the linoleum:

With the sample color we chose, we had just enough to cover the bathroom floor with two coats (its a three coat process, in addition to the no-slip seal on top of it). I'm super excited to see it completely finished, its such a dramatic difference!!!

This is how it looks after its all dry. It dried in just a few hours actually. We didn't order the stain til Friday, so it's coming in Wednesday, and I can't hardly wait. All the furniture has been stuffed into the dining and living room, even the fridge. So it will be nice when its all put back together, then I'll feel like cooking dinner again.

That is going to be beautiful! Are you nervous about concrete floors with the kids? I love the look but am nervous about the hardness. Let me know!
