What You Will Need:

  • Garage/concrete floor coating kit
  • 2 paint rollers with handles and 2 trays
  • Scrub brush, mop and bucket (for cleaning)
  • 6-8 jars of chunky glitter
  • Bowl
  • Brush for edging
  • A gallon of water-based high gloss polyurethane varnish
  • Fans, open windows!

Steps:

  1. Use the cleaner in the kit to fully clean your floor. Mix it in the bucket, scrub, rinse with mop.
  2. Scrape off any glue, patch holes, let dry.
  3. Mix the two parts of paint mixture according to package directions. Stir vigorously!
  4. Pour into one paint tray, use a brush to paint the edges of the room.
  5. Now use one of the rollers to paint a section of the room.
  6. Throw handfuls of glitter in the air so it lands evenly.
  7. Keep working section by section, make sure to add glitter to cover the section lines so it will all blend.
  8. Let dry over night, extra if you live in a humid climate.
  9. Use push broom to sweep off excess glitter.
  10. Scrub away areas that are too thick, you want it to all be even.
  11. Sweep up extra and toss it.
  12. Open can of varnish, pour in the second paint tray and use second roller to apply an even coat. Let dry and add another coat.
  13. Repeat four or five times. You want the floor to be smooth so you can wipe up any spills.
  14. Let dry for 2-3 days before moving in furniture or walking on it.
