Workshop Information

Location
United States
180 sqft

We bought our house with a finished basement. So I unfinished part of it and walled it off to start my shop. There was carpet on top of the concrete floor. Ripping it up was a huge issue because the carpet pad was glued down and the tack strips left divots in the concrete. After scraping up the glue and filling the divots I epoxy-painted the floor, then added a coat of urethane for protection.

LESSONS LEARNED: Use the friction flakes. I didn't think it would be that slippery….. but it's very slippery.
