  • Project Info:
    • Project Completed In: 5 day(s)
    • Estimate of Square Footage: 1600 sq. ft.
    • Project Description:
      Headache!!! I had an extremely unlevel floor. I had to grind down some areas 1 inch (about 400 sqft) and had to raise 300sqft 1 inch to get things overall with 1/2″. Then I had to pour 180 bags of the floor leveler and of course I was 16 bags short. This meant I was left with a cold joint for the final finish which I tried to accentuate and create a vein out of. Then I had to grind the surface to a 200 grit and blend the cold joint. Finally it was time to stain and stormy gray, white, and charcoal created one beautiful stained floor. This was a bit of an unorthodox project but I’m happy with it.I have more pictures also.

      I also plan to add a couple coats of direct colors floor wax when it arrives. I think that’ll really blend things out. I’ll know soon…

    • Personal Tips:
      If possible to test your stain application and top coating method exactly as you plan to before hand, do it. My project turned out great from a stain aspect but the epoxy primer and urethane was only ok and I could have made that better but it’s alright for a first timer.Also, with the vibrance dye, don’t be dumb like me and step in it right after you spray it. I didn’t enjoy working those prints out.

      Finally, I may have applied too much stain but I found when applying my finish some dye would come up especially when brushing the edges. If possible, roll the edges when cutting in.

    • Direct Colors Products Used:
      Stormy gray, white, and charcoal

    Other Products Used:
    VSEAL epoxy primer and urethane (3015 and 3321) industra-coat.

  • Project Completed In: 3 day(s)
  • Estimate of Square Footage: 400 sq. ft.
  • Project Description:
    Basement Stormy Gray application.
  • Personal Tips:
    I would suggest waiting the complete 6 hours for dye to cure. It’s better to be safe, and let it completely cure. Also, the stormy gray will come out a little darker at first. You will need to spray some in a bucket at first to get that out. Otherwise, it will look like a charcoal color.
