Paint for a concrete breezeway floor

lov_mkitchenIOWA zone 6bMarch 15, 2013

I've been roaming the net for ideas and colors of paint for a concrete breezeway floor. It will be above grade but will have heavy big dog traffic every day. I watched a short video for DRYLOK. What has everyone used? What worked?

I have a bazillion color ideas but first get the old inlaid ground off. I will have that done professionally and they will get it ready for me to paint.

I have the original dry lock in the basement. What I'd REALLY like to do is the old fashioned linoleum. It would better match the period of my house. Today's vinyl is too soft for the first steps inside a farm house! If Marmoleum wasn't so expensive..........
