Our garage/workshop floor was NASTY! I have always wanted to do an epoxy floor coating in the garage but honestly, it seemed way to hard to pull off. I finally decided to make it happen and I am excited to say that it worked! I saved a TON of money doing it myself and we couldn't be happier with the result. We use this area multiple times a day and every time I step foot on it I am thankful I did it. At the end of it all, it only cost me about $800 compared to nearly the $4,000 it would have cost me to have it done. Below, I have a detailed YouTube video, all the steps I followed to complete the project and the links to everything I used. I am certain that you can do it!

STEP 1 Remove all the stuff on the floor and take low hanging items off the walls.
STEP 2 Pressure Wash the entire floor. Let dry.
STEP 3 Apply stain remover to tough spots or entire surface (I recommend entire surface). Then pressure wash.
STEP 4 Apply degreaser to tough pots or entire surface (again, I recommend entire surface). Then pressure wash.
STEP 5 Apply concrete etching to entire surface. Then pressure wash.
STEP 6 Let dry for 48 hours.
STEP 6.1 Use this time to apply quikrete, great stuff to fill gaps, caulk, and primer/paint to all areas of need.
STEP 6.2 Sand quikrete areas and finalize all paint touchups.
STEP 7 Mix the epoxy base and prepare to paint and spread decorative chips.
STEP 8 Paint the floor. (Have a buddy go behind and spread the decorative chips right away.) Allow to dry 24 hours.
STEP 9 Go across the entire floor with a brush or hand in a work glove to loosen any decorative chips that did not dry flat.
STEP 10 Blow out all the loose decorative chips. (There weren't many.)
STEP 11 Prep the clear coating mix by mixing in the non skid sand. (Highly recommend using some measure of it).
STEP 12 Paint the floor. Allow to dry 24 hours.
STEP 13 ENJOY!
