Faux brick floor in garage bar

Building a Reputation

Faux brick floor in garage bar

When we built our house we built a quadruple garage, with half of the garage designated to being the man shed/bar. It just had plain concrete floors, and we decided to start there. 
I looked up many ideas and settled on faux bricks! 


Concrete paint in brick red, grey and cream


Pack of large sponges - at least 4




Scissors or knife to cut sponge

Roller to roll the floor paint


Step 1

 Start with cleaning the concrete floor to prep for painting. 


Step 2

Use the roller and paint two coats of the cream paint. 

Cut the sponges in the shape of a brick (helpful to use a real one to get the right size). 

Do a few practice rounds on paper using the sponge in the red paint. You will have to have a few half sponges cut too for when you get to the end of a row and can’t fit in a whole ‘brick’. 

Afterwards, use the grey paint on a small sponge to dab random patterns to make it look like old reclaimed bricks.
