Decorative CONCRETE PATIO Resurfacing | Antique STAIN Lake of the Ozarks

Hey: this is rick with custom, concrete design and lake of the ozarks. This week we’re over in porto sema and it’s. On the other side of the lake, we’re, going to go ahead and start grinding.

This area right here getting set up for the grinding. What we’ve got here is concrete paint and we ‘ Ve got to take that off before we put our overlay on it. The concrete’s in pretty good shape.

I don’t, see any cracks or anything there might be a couple hairlines we’ll, see once i take and grind this concrete paint off of here, but you know the concrete’s in really pretty good shape. The paint bubbled up in these areas here and you can see where it’s chipped off, but it’s.

It’s mainly out here in the screened in area. It’s, pretty good. We’ve got to take all that off. First, all right. This job in portusema is [ Music, ], complete [, Music, ], so [, Music, ] foreign [, Music, ], [, Music, ], okay, just a little bit outside this screened in area.

To do right here on this outside lip just a little strip about three inches wide. I don’t know how long, but it’s nice and clean. We’ll go out here to the outside deck. I’m gonna try to keep it out of the sun because it changes the way this looks so i’ll.

Show you the area here in the shade, and maybe a quick glimpse of in the sun over here. The rest of it looks like in here underneath the shade, but that sun just changes the way it looks so go buy that real, quick, [ Music ].

Harley Davidson BAR and Shield Diamond Plate EPOXY COUNTERTOP | Lake Ozark MO


Not much to say about this one, it’s a Harley Davidson Bar and Shield metal cutout.

I started with a regular 1 inch MDF board countertop, bought some 1.5 inch trim for it, cut that trim to fit, painted it matte black and used my trim gun to attach the trim around the perimeter.

Went to a Local steel company to have a piece of diamond plate cut to fit the board, once I got it back to my shop I just used liquid nail to glue the diamond plate to the top of the countertop, then did the same with the metal Harley Davidson bar and shield.

Then I mixed up some 2 part commercial grade epoxy added in a very small amount of Gun Metal Metallic Powder, and a pinch of Blue Jean Metallic power, mixed that for a few min, made a tape wall around the perimeter of the countertop and repeated that for a second round of tape just to secure the epoxy so it would not leak out, once that was all done I just poured it all out on the countertop, moved it around where I needed it and it made a 1/4 inch thick layer of Epoxy so it went over the diamond plate and the Harley Davidson bar and shield that was glued onto it.

I also used a Heat Gun to pop the bubbles of the Epoxy added a few subtle flames to the top of the bar and shield and sprayed some black spray paint over the epoxy to dirty it up some, then used isopropyl 91% alcohol spritzed on with a small hand sprayer with a trigger, that helped the products to blend together creating some nice cells and spider veins.

When it was all done I let it settled and move and in the end we got exactly what I was going for a slightly smoked dirty gun metal blue steel look overall I would say it was a success, do you agree???….. let me know in the comments here on the site or on the video over on my YouTube channel.

Hope you Enjoy the pictures and Video

Decorative Concrete Barnwood Resurfacing | Patio Deck Makeover with Concretewood Lake of the Ozarks


Hey guys, this is Rick with Custom Concrete Design lake of the ozarks. This week we are on the other side of the lake at a condo unit. Here lower level. They have two patios. We’re, going to go ahead and just do this one,

But first we got to take off this coating that’s on here, get it down to the bare concrete. I think i’ve. Seen a couple of cracks, we’ll, probably have to repair on that side, but overall it’s in pretty good shape.

We’re, going to come back in and put a. We’re, going to put concrete wood back over the top of this, so this is going to look like um. We’re, just gonna go in with one color. I think we’re, just gonna do a basic brown color, but we’re gonna have several different variations of that one color, but anyways yeah concrete wood.

Here we go…. What you guys are seeing here is the first coat of charcoal gray, just put it down, so this is wet. It’s right now. It’s, trying to dry it’ll dry about four or five shades lighter, and we’ll come back tomorrow and do the same thing.

We did have to do this uh outside lip here as well, because it doesn’t cool the screen door. The screen, doesn’t, go all the way to the edge, so went ahead and coated this too. Okay, our patterns taped out.

We went in with four inch six inch and we did an 8 inch too on our width and then on our length. We made them anywhere from 2, 4 6 8 and we did a few tins in there as well. So we really got everything staggered out.

Really nice, and tomorrow we’re, going to come in here and we’re going to do our base coat color over the top of this tape to basically lock it down in case there’s, any Bleed under it’ll, be the same color, so we’re going to cover this with a thin layer tomorrow, [, Music, ], okay, right now we have cut our lines, our saw cuts.

We cut them to open that back up. We pulled our tape to reveal our grout lines and our pattern um. What we’re doing right now is we’re just going through and and kind of cutting some of the corners of the boards and the edges.

I don’t know if you can see this or not right here, [ Music, ] here um here’s an edge. We’re just trying to make it somewhat jagged on some of these boards. You can see some of them here. They’re, not perfectly straight, so we’ve, just kind of gone through on different boards here and there and um.

You know just kind of knocked off the edges in the corners, but our texture went on yesterday and, as you can tell it’s, a nice wood grain texture got some of our knot. Holes in there now once we get these areas notched out.

What i’m gonna do is i’m gonna that’s. What this drill is for, i’m gonna go ahead and drill out some holes on each plank uh here and here. So two holes each side of each plank. We’re gonna have uh so that’s.

Basically gonna look like nail holes so that’s. Gonna be all the way down on every board, so it’s going to make it look even more realistic. You know between our texture and our knot, holes and our nail holes and everything um it’s.

Uh it’s, going to look like barn wood here real shortly. It already is. It just needs some coloring, which once we uh get all this done. We’re, going to go ahead and color it [ Music ] all right what we’re doing now, as you can tell making some nail holes, [, Music ].

Yes, it is  okay, this barn wood project, [ Applause ] in laurie missouri, is complete, [, Music ] so – and this is gonna, look a little bit different from different angles and heights um.

You know from this side to that side we have more light shining in and it’s. Creating a nice sheen across here and it’s. Gon na look like it’s really light and then dark. It’s all in the sunlight and the angles that i’ve got here, but this thing turned out beautiful.

Definitely going for that! Rustic barnyard, our barn farmwood, look [ Music ]! I think we got it got some nice texturing in it, nice coloring, all of our nail holes and every board a lot of knot. Holes got about a dozen.

I guess not a lot about a dozen knotholes in here, good heavy texture. Four inch wide six inch wide eight inch wide planks, all staggered: four, six, eight and ten in length.

We, got really good variation in the boards. Good variation of the texture, coloring [, Music ] – and we did hit this outside area here. [, Music ] too so  and about probably six of the boards in here we did a solid, well fairly solid, dark color to give it even more variation.

All the other ones have mixed color. Together, we got two colors brown and amber, and we got to uh about 70, probably 80 brown mixed in just a little bit amber. Give you more of a bird’s-eye view here: 

okay, let’s take a look at the detail and coloring in our planks. We also varied the um nail holes, so they’re. Not perfectly placed that’s, all done on purpose kind of staggered them too.

We actually chipped out some of the corners as well on some of the planks and also on the side of the plank to uh. Just give it more more realistic, a more realistic look trying to keep it as authentic as we could [ Music ] guys if you’re watching this on youtube.

Basement Floor Makeover

😎 Basement Floor Makeover I don’t know how many I’ve done, but I did enjoy doing this one.

it was a pretty average floor, had to remove some tile and thinset nothing major, but we got the entire floor ground down and started the base coats, then texture coat.

We came in with 2 Acid Stains – Umber and Brown, after each coat of color went down I went in and tweaked it out, ammonia rinsed it, let it sit for a few days with fans came back and added out Clear Epoxy…..BOOM 💥💣
