Can I paint my garage and/or patio floor with chalk paint?
Hello y’all and thank you for your input.... I am seriously wanting to chalk paint both my garage floor and patio floor (which is about to become a screened in porch). I want to do a stencil on them. Both floors are made of cement. And both floors are in good shape (no cracks; very few oil spots and if there are oil spots, they are in one small area). I’ve read very good reports about Annie Sloan Chalk Pint and I would use this brand, I think. My DH is very skeptical about using chalk paint for these projects as he feels as though the paint would come off on our shoes and mark up the floors in the house. Nothing I’ve read leads me to believe this is true. He wants me to use a paint product made for concrete/cement. My concern with the concrete paint is that it will flake, peel and/or chip off and when it comes time to redo it.. it will be very difficult to make it look good at that point. I’m also concerned that the concrete paint won’t last long. I feel as though the chalk paint will last a long time and when it does start to wear, it will wear subtlety and gracefully. Am I wrong? How long would the chalk paint last? How long would the concrete paint last? And I’m assuming I need to put a lacquer on either type of paint...true? Thank you for sharing your wisdom!
