4640 Brandy Oak Court Garage Floor Stain

The garage walls of 4640 Brandy Oak Court were painted in October 2012. Two walls were painted with Benjamin Moore Aura Waterborne Interior Paint HC-137 Mill Springs Blue. An accent wall was painted with Sherwin-Williams SW6824 Forget-Me-Not Paint. Check out those two blog posts about the paint job and you can see what the garage floor looked like before it was stained.

I had wanted to paint the floor after I painted the garage walls, but I never found the time. Probably the most fun surface to paint in a house is the garage floor. It's a pretty straight forward job with a nice square flat surface. It is important that you thoroughly clean the floor first.

Since the floor already had a sealer coat, we opted to use Behr Premium Floor Coatings Solid Color Concrete Stain in #PFC-63 Slate Gray. We picked it up from our local Home Depot for $27.98 a gallon.

Slate Gray is a perfect color for concrete! It matches up with the painted patio slab in the back yard. And, it complements the sidewalk and front porch area concrete which is painted in a mid-tone to light gray.

Aside from the paint, the must-have necessity item for painting a garage floor is the extension pole. We used one that reaches to 12 ft. I can't imagine painting a garage floor without such a device!

The weather was a bit brisk when the stain went down. Normally, we would opt to paint in warmer temperatures. Despite the chilly weather, our garage is well-ventilated, and it was a clear and rather calm day. So the stain went on like butter and dried fairly rapidly.

Take a look at that garage floor. You can see the comparison of colors against the accent wall painted with Sherwin-Williams SW6824 Forget-Me-Not Paint. The deep eggplant purple blends well with the slate gray.

And, there are the other two walls of the garage which are painted with Benjamin Moore Aura Waterborne Interior Paint HC-137 Mill Springs Blue. The two colors have the same depth and tone of color. It's a good match!
