A Little Doggie Decor

Just as we girls like a little pampering, so do our pets!   A friend recently made a big career change and is getting ready to open a Grooming Studio. 

Having a real rug in the shop isn't practical, so she asked if I would paint one for her. 

She found this whimsical dresser on CraigsList -- already painted and ready to be used.  It became our inspiration for her rug.  Isn't it too cute?

So, let's start with a littleTurquoise......

                  add some leopard .....                               

...and PINK is a must!

You can see that Miss Gabby approves.
(yes, dogs do care about decor!)

Painting on concrete floors isn't hard. (but it is hard on the back and knees!)
Like any successful paint job, using the right products is a must. 
  •  After the floor was swept clean,  paint with with latex concrete paint, available from any paint store, Home Depot or Lowes. 
  • Paint your design with acrylic paint. 
  • Spray the design with a sealer.   I used Krylon Clear Matte Sealer in a spray can.  This keeps the final clear coat from softening the painted design.
  •  Finish by rolling two coats of clear concrete floor sealer over the entire surface.
So don't be intimidated about giving it a try!
