    When the 'Bride' gives the you the side eye as to the chips and debris that track into the house, it becomes time appease. My hide-away is just a little 8 X 16 room off the garage, raw concrete just doesn't take to a sweeping too well. Emptied it to do something with the floor [Might as well paint the walls while I'm at it]
    Now the mind goes - Diamond grind the floor and hard epoxy coat it - Nope, not going there - Hit the floor with a ceramic belt on the belt sander just enough to knock down the proud points and scuff up the remains of the previous surface coat. Didn't take long to conclude that a little water to cut the dust down just make mud pies, so to get it done went for the no water dust cloud route. The old carpet cleaner worked fine to suck up the residue from the floor.
    Nothing fancy - Paint the walls, scuff the floor and apply a couple coats of 50 buck garage floor paint. Least now should sweep better, reduce the 'Brides' side eye and now that it's empty can organize it to include my coffee pot .

    Dust - That stuff gets everywhere . . .

    After a few days to let the paint setup, time to put stuff back. Course 'bout half the stuff yarded out went into the back of the truck for a dump run. You collect stuff thinking you'll need it only to crowd yourself out of what used to be a comfortable environment.

    Floor sweeps up much nicer now - -

    Naturally in the rearrangement the 'Tool Wall' of necessary emergency supplies is 'Proudly' visible . . .
