Is there anything you don't have?

Is that paint on the floor or epoxy?

Great space Jeff.

I used to work in a downtown store that had an office supply/book store in the basement. The floor was a stained green smooth concrete finish. That building was 80+ years old. I don't know how old that finish was, but it never wore off in the years I was there.

Does that stain do anything to seal the pores in the concrete (making cleanup of spills easier)?

Nice open area to work. I really like the stained floor. Nice Garage!

Where can I buy the behr stain? What kind of prep to the floor is required before you can stain it?

I too would like to know about the prep and also what colors are available. In other words, are there many colors to choose from?

Good information on the Behr web page. Looks like it is tintable to any color you wish, Behr only lists two base colors.

RAYJAY,
How about the ceiling? Is that just a high gloss white paint on sheetrock / plywood?
It reflects the light very well.

Did you do any special prep before doing your stain?

Also, people sometimes apply a sealer after staining....did you use a sealer? If so, why or, if not, why not?
