Recently, I decided it was time to do something about the basement floor.  Not only was it ugly, but because of numerous irregularities and textures, it was awkward to sweep and keep clean.  Even though I’m still hanging sheetrock, I decided to go ahead and paint the floor so as to have a nicer work environment.  With the weather getting colder, I wanted to get it done before the floor was really cold.

I decided to go a bit retro – partly for fun and partly for utility… a flake finish helps to make the floor look cleaner than it probably is.  The floor was a long way from perfect with numerous small cracks and various repairs; the new finish will help to hide all that:

I didn't go all the way to the wall as I'll be building storage along it.

Now it’s time to get back to hanging the sheetrock.
