donald.. you got any tips for doing it??
i am getting the cleaner/degreaser and an etching agent...
then going to do like 2-3 coats of the stain...
then baking soda to get the excess up..
then clean..
then seal with like 4 coats of the "wet look" sealant...

should i add the texture stuff to it? (indoors)
