Help! In my new 1920's office space, I have removed the carpet, floor tile and the gross tile adhesive. The original concrete floor is a earth reddish color that I wanted to keep and seal. It looks like whatever type of paint was used to coat the floor - somehow, the stain absorbed a very thin layer of the concrete surface. It's a very cool earthy red. However, the floor has been "marred" in the majority of the areas so it will look splotchy if I seal as is, so I have decided the best thing to do would be to paint it a color as close to the existing color as I can get. Can someone please recommend a good concrete paint with a semi gloss finish that can handle office traffic? I do plan to have an area rug, but I want the floor to be exposed along the borders of the space. Any suggestions, recommendations? Ideas are much appreciated! Bernice
