Pouring an Epoxy Floor for the Veterans' Art Center

Posted by Madison Ragar on

We absolutely love our workshops. Everything from meeting different people, seeing what they can create, and being able to help people gain a skill in a niche market that is profitable AND fun is awesome. What’s even better is being able to teach others, while providing a service to our community! Each time we hold a class we try to find a business, individual, nonprofit, etc. that is in need of a new countertop or a new floor. By doing this we are helping ourselves grow as teachers and a team, we are helping our guests gain valuable knowledge and skills, and we’re helping our community in need. 

Pouring Epoxy over a Penny Floor

In our penny floor how-to video, found here:

A local woman and her husband had spent countless evenings gluing pennies to their kitchen floor. Unfortunately, her husband passed on before they would finish the project together. Countertop Epoxy’s Resin Workshop stepped in and together we all polished the pennies and poured our clear flooring epoxy to finally finish the penny floor! We all had a fantastic time, and everyone involved left with knowledge and the woman left with a new shiny penny floor!

Pouring an Epoxy Floor

Our latest Advanced Flooring class was able to help us pour an epoxy floor for our local Veterans' Art Center. The floor was poured on cement, after carpet had been pulled up and removed. It was diamond grinded to remove high spots and crack patch was used in any cracks, or joints. We poured a skim coat the first day, and came back the second to pour the flood coat. The Art Center chose our Metallic Almond Base color, with brown and light brown accents. It turned out gorgeous, and is the new floor for their showroom.
