Female: We’re using a porch and floor paint which is excellent because it’s made to go over concrete and lucky you two, it’s self priming and self sealing. So it’s going to save us a couple of layers so you guys are really lucky because your concrete was clean and ready but if we have to power wash it or acid – it if it wasn’t. for today, your work is done after we finish off this floor because it needs to dry fully overnight. Then tomorrow, we have a few more fun projects to do.
Female: On the floor, I want to create a faux rug I’m having Nicky tape off an edge so then I can write an Italian sonnet in it. How would you feel about doing the handwriting part on the rug?
Female: I think I could do it.
Female: So you’re just going to take a little artist brush and outline it and don’t dwell because the more aged and old it looks, the better. I’m going to have you follow her with a little roller and fill in the other stripes.
Male: Finally I’m off sealing duty.
Female: I love this border and I’m so excited that I’m doing it.
Female: I love it, it’s fabulous, you got so far.
Female: I know we have two feet left.
Female: Excellent, we’re going to finish that and then let it dry overnight.
