We pulled up all the old carpeting, we decided to paint the floors. So, not sure as to how to paint and seal our bedroom floor.
Here is info for your project.
Hi Marie, here is a post that might help... https://www.hometalk.com/44267011/painting-a-concrete-floor At the end she says she used a clear Polyurethane to seal the paint.
First, you will want to clean it with an etching cleaner so that whatever you put down will adhere.
Next, go to a free standing paint store rather than the paint section of a big box store. I would recommend Sherwin Williams. Go over your specific issues and they will help you choose the best product and application tools.
Finally, make sure to seal it.
I would consider stain over painting the floors. Stain will not show the wear and tear and flake like paint will. If stain isn't an option, you might want to go with a garage floor painting epoxy kit. Just don't use the flakes so it doesn't look like an industrial garage floor, unless you like that look - then design based on an industrial motif.
You could use a garage paint and seal kit. This is a how to video: https://youtu.be/SMMf1kcqr7M
(The video shows how to use an etching cleaner on cement.)
Hello. We cleaned, filled major defects and sealed with primer our concrete laundry floor before painting. We used to concrete for -porch paint and it looks wonderful and is holding up nicely.
There is some helpful information here:
Wooden floor, Prime, Undercoat and then topcoat with Gloss or Satin finish. or use chalk paint and then wax over. or You could use a wood stain and seal it after.
Concrete floor, Use Floor and Tile paint.
Russtoleum has a great product called "Rock Solid". It is available at many places such as Lowes and Home Depot. It is a very permanent type product that looks great, is easy to clean with an industria l tpe look.
They sell special concrete paint

You need a durable paint - check with good paint store. We removed carpets in our family room that was concrete. I sprayed on Thompson's water seal, and then we installed a floating bamboo floor (over floating floor foam).

Hi! Use a floor paint intended for concrete. Scrub it clean first. Follow the manufacturer instructions for best results. Good luck and stay safe!
So we did this with our cement patio and it held up great. Inside I suspect your results will only be better. We used Benjamin Moore floor and wall paint.
can I use Rustoleum on a wood surface?
