    I'd love to second the requests for more info on staining a concrete floor. It's gorgeous! I have an unfinished concrete laundry room floor that I've been trying to decide about — and I didn't know about options besides the grey epoxy paint or the more rustic looking concrete finishing treatments.

    Love these floors, did you ever do a tutorial on how you did it and what you used? I can't seem to find it.

    Just came across your blog and I LOVE it! Especially the series about your studio/office. i love the idea of the stained cement floors + you chose such a perfect color. Any tips on staining cement?! Thanks!

    i used a stain from the home depot. it is call a concrete "stain" but it is mainly paint they can tint any color. it is a color as close to benjamin moore's robins nest that i could find there.

    just make sure to use a concrete primer before painting the color on, and then a concrete top coat, a clear one.
