What would I use to fill small holes in a cement floor

by Amazing Grace !
These are the holes I am speaking about. They aren't very deep, but with a paper bag floor, im quite sure the holes will be prominent when finished.
the floor molding isn't very clear but I though rather than remove the molding I could use quarter round to fill in the small space between the end of the molding and the flooring. even thought about using a contrasting color on the quarter round. The builders of this house definitely cheaped out and used window molding instead of floor molding. Any suggestions? Please email me at Today I will finish removing the tacking and paint both molding and room. I am saying this because I would like a few suggestions before I blunder forward and screw it up. I am seriously a "go for it - jump first - then regret thinking it through" kind of woman. A real " I want it now"... :) email address is
Thank you in advance for your response.

    I've attached photos of two products that I've used for patching holes and cracks in cement and concrete. Both can be bought at Lowe's or Home Depot and they've both worked very well for me.

    They sell concrete in tubes (like caulking) to fill holes & cracks!

    They sell concrete patch in containers like spackel and in larger buckets. It's made just for patching holes like that

    One of the easiest products to use for light repair of finished concrete is Fix-All. This product doesn't shrink; it swells slightly to lock in. Additionally, you can slow down cure time by adding a bit of vinegar to the mix (read instructions). If you screw up and over fill the hole, you can use a masonry grinder to level it out. A super repair can be had by first painting the repair site with acrylic cement adhesive first, then filling the hole once the adhesive tacks up. All-in-all, this product actually lives up to its name. I've even used it to repair severe termite damage in a rafter tail. That repair, painted over, is in full view under my patio cover and remains totally sound and invisible---it is well over 20 years old now.

    Check out Quickcrete's video and print instructions. I've used their patching concrete in the past and it has held up well. Looks like the holes you have in the floor would be easiest filled with the caulk gun repair product they show.

    you can clean out holes and then use crack fill. It comes in a tube

    After the holes are filled, add a layer of white waterproofing such as Drylok (which might be used to fill the holes, too, if they don't go all the way through to dirt below) or Flex Seal or at least a water resistant porch paint before adding any other flooring.{ifdyn:dyn}&k_clickID=786bd4d2-c40e-4234-b992-fbcc43812eb2

    Thank you for your input, much appreciated. But I whipped up some morter left over from the tile. It worked out perfect, and didn't cost a dime. Thanks again.
