Kemiko's Rembrandt Polymer Stains?
I've been considering having a small room (about 150 sq ft) acid stained with Kemiko's Stone Tone acid stain, but the more I read the less I think this is right for me. There is a lot of garbage on the floor including a carpet pad adhesive residue that I really don't want to show through the stain. I've also got those little craters left from the tack strips. I'd love to do an overlay, but can't for financial reasons.
I was wondering if anyone had used Kemiko's Rembrandt Polymer Stains? How did it turn out? Is the floor color more even? Does it cover adhesive residue? What is the floor preparation process like? Does it need to be sealed and what is the maintenance like? Is it considered an "acid" stain? Could a diy'er handle it?
The only other alternative I can come up with for this room is to paint it using Behr's Porch Paint. Has anyone done this and if you have, what is the floor prep like for this? I figure with the porch paint I can always do some sort of faux finish as well - maybe sponge paint a top coat.
Needless to say I'm looking for a solution that isn't overly complicated, something that I can handle with my limited set of skills, and financially feasible (read - inexpensive; money is in short supply, but time isn't).
I'd appreciate any help I can get...
