Okay, this is Rick with custom, concrete design Lake of the Ozarks Missouri. This week I am in Lake of the Ozarks Missouri on the bagnell, damn strip at T LaFata’s Salon. This is my wife salon and the coming weeks I’m, going to be doing the entryway and a metallic epoxy, but this week I’m just working on this little slab here.

Obviously I already started the grinding there’s, a crack. I’m gonna have to repair there. I’m gonna get the rest of this grinding run, put a base coat on and we’re gonna tape out up wood pattern, so it’s.

Gon na gonna be wood planks and we’ll stain it make it look like wood and then we’re going to seal it down alright. Well, we got the pattern down. What I did was, as I did four inch planks. Orange width and then six inch width and then just kind of staggered, the length of it, and once we had the pattern down just sprayed over a basically what I call a tack coat, what it does is it seals that tape kind of locks, everything in so You know my next coat that goes over the top of it being that it’s.

Gon na be a different color. We don’t want that color to bleed up underneath to taint the tape and get on to our dark grout. So we put a tack coat down to basically seal that tape. You can kind of see the pattern all right.

We got this project finished up here at T the FATA salon, Lake of the Ozarks. I just finished up a Facebook live video, so if you guys are, if I’m friends with you on Facebook, be sure and tune in to my live videos.

You guys know what we did, because you watched the previous videos, but we did the coloring yesterday and and then seal it up yesterday afternoon really turned out nice.

So you really can make concrete look like wood there. You go six-inch planks, four inch planks. All staggered different links and then I use three different colors. I use Bart Brown and an amber, and then I used those two colors to make.

My third color really turned out nice, though it’s, got some great texture to it. Give you a little bit more of a close-up here, made some not holes nail holes if you guys are on my youtube channel, make sure you get subscribed.

Concrete WOOD Resurfacing 👷 Step by Step 👷 WATCH as we CREATE Decorative CONCRETE Wood

 

 

This week we’re down horseshoe bend in Lake of the Ozarks here we have a walkway that leads over here to the garage, and over to the front stoop. I need to take this overlay off it’s broke up pretty good, and pretty damaged, it almost looks like they put it over a slab of rock or somethin, and it could be a couple of coatings, It’s got a lot of cracks and damage to the to the slab it’s in pretty bad shape, so with that said I decided to take my hammer and chip that off, it appears to be hollow up underneath there in that particular area.

There’s a few cracks and some water where they water their plants. So if that water’s gotten up underneath it there, there’s probably A good chance that a lot of this underneath here is very lose and hollow, so i’m gonna go ahead and start grinding this off and see what we’ve got up underneath.

Okay, we’re, going to pick up where we left off on this job. They’ve got this slab repoured and it’s ready for an overlay now. So I’m grinding the rest of it off over here as you can see where I stopped. I cut that line across here and they redid this area of their concrete, now i’ve got to come in here and grind the rest of this concrete overlay off that was on here which you can see i’ve already started that.

 

What the white is i’m. Taking that down to the original concrete i’ve got to bring it down there’s about a half inch lip that i’ve got to go ahead and and get you know, get down flush, maybe a half inch Or so, and we’ll, probably slope it back about a foot and a half, so it’s, got a nice slope to it, yeah other than that.

This is what we’ve got to start with. Today we’re gonna, hopefully get everything ground down today and come in and do our first base coat tomorrow. The finished look is gonna, be a wood plank oh luke! I am your father.

Okay, it’s day. Two on this concrete wood project down horseshoe bend and lake of the ozarks. This is rick uh. We just got the base coat on finished. The grinding put the base coat on. It looks kind of spotty right now because it’s drying up uh.

It’s, getting kind of warm out here and you know wind’s blowing pretty good, but this is a base coat. It’s. Actually going to be darker than this, but i didn’t want to go in with a white base coat, so i added some color to it, but you can see how much it is uh drying right there and that’s, where I started it gets a little bit more solid here.

I’m, probably going to wind up going with a second coat and it’ll be darker and you can see where it’s more and more solid. As far as a darker color goes because here’s, where i stopped, but i’ll actually do a shade, or maybe three shades darker than that.

I want it to be pretty dark um, because when we put our wood pattern down and pull our tape, this is the grout coat that you’re gonna see that’s. That’s, the color, but you know it’s, going to be almost black uh real dark.

You know charcoal so um. It always lightens up several shades when it is drying, but it always goes back to a darker color. So here’s, where we’re at right now on stage, um got several steps to go, but we should be done with this next wednesday or thursday and right now.

I believe this is may 2nd wednesday, so anyways that’s. What we got for now, all right. We got our second base coat on a little bit darker this time. So this is the color that you’re, going to see, probably actually even darker than this, once we put stain on it seal it.

You know, of course, that after the wood texture goes on it, but this is uh a little bit truer to the color, so it just went down still a little wet. It will dry light, but it ‘ Ll go back to this color when it’s done, but it’s.

Uh. It’s, a lot more solid, now um starting to dry up here and there. So there might be. I don’t know if it’s shadows or it’s, just drying up in certain areas, but there you go second base coat is down okay.

We now have the fiber tape over our two base: coats. All the wood planks have been measured out. Everything’s, hand, taped four, six and eight in the width. The length is just kind of random. I really don’t want a pattern:- i’ll, be in monday spray over the top of this, with the grout coat color.

That way, we lock that tape down and get it sealed off. Because tuesday, we’re, going to be doing the texture wednesday. We’re, going to be staining and thursday. We’re, going to lock this thing down seal.

It up and get home. Okay, we’ve got our tack coat on. You can still see the tape ghosting through the tack coat of concrete because it’s, just a thin layer, We’ll, come back in tomorrow morning with the texture coat, so it almost doesn’t.

Look like the uh. Almost doesn’t. Look like there’s anything over because you can still see that tape quite a bit, but tomorrow you will not see this tape. I’ll bury it tomorrow and then i’ll, pull it up probably tomorrow afternoon, and then we’ll stain it wednesday.

Okay, we have the wood texture coat on here uh. We just do this coat in a white because uh tomorrow we’ll, come in and pull the tape. The pattern tape that’s underneath of it and um. You know, then, you’ll, be able to see the texture a lot better and, of course, the pattern once the tape’s pulled, but we do it white, because we’re, going to color it with a couple of Different colors tomorrow so that way we just got a clean slate to begin with. It just works better if it’s done on a white base and i don’t know. If you can see this very well or not a lot of shadowing here, but it’s really hard to tell what the texture looks like.

Let me get a little closer. It’s kind of so bright out here that it’s kind of bleeping everything out. Let’s. Try here, all right, so that’s. What we have for now? Okay, it’s, cleaned up and ready for some color.

All the tape’s been pulled. It’s, been cleaned up, joint lines, open back up it’s, been edged up against the driveway. Everything’s, nice and clean there. All the nail holes have been drilled, so every plank has two nail holes on each side of it: four per line that’s where the planks meet and they are staggered, um uneven on purpose.

We want this to look as authentic as possible. Perfect imperfection, if that makes sense, so i’m, getting ready to come in and just hit those nail holes with some darker color to make them completely black.

And then we’Ll start the coloring, which is going to be brown and amber, okay. This is before the sealer goes on, but the color is all done, cleaned up it’s, ready to go actually started sealing it up top, but i stopped to take this video real quick.

This is how the color turned out again. This is before the sealer i’ll. Do a final after the sealer’s on! Let me know: does that look like wood about as close as i pretty much can get it there’s.

Different, looks different colors a little bit different patterns that you could do with it. But overall i think mission accomplished. Okay, this job in four seasons is complete.

I think wood is done. got some nice texturing real nice coloring just goes uh perfect, with the setting they’ve got here. Now they have the house decorated,. You know the big wood beam pillars and the front door, all rock it’s, just a real rustic look.

So let’s, just kind of finished it off. This is going to run all the way over here to the front stoop, i mean sorry, i didn’t want to do anything with that drain other than just do a picture frame around it.

I didn’t want to drop any lines in it because it’s. Such a small area can’t, keep our wood look for the most part on the side wall from the twin stoop area. That will look really weird, i think, with a bunch of lines running through it, especially with that grate.

We just got some really nice, texturing and coloring here see if i can get a little closer, so you guys can see it. We have to keep the joint lines open so that’s. What that is, you can’t fill those in because the concrete wants to expand in the winter months well, winter and summer, so that concrete has to move.

So we got ta leave those expansion, joints open, yeah, sun kind of gives you a little bit different perspective. It does bring out the color, but it also kind of makes it look a little bit different than what it really is too.

That’s. Why it looks so different over here, more it’s covered up in the shade versus out there right in that bright song, so the rest of it does look like this. It’s, just the sun just kind of blends it together.

More, let’s. Look at this texture, since we’re in the shade here and the coloring, also drilled in every plank. There’s, okay, that’s about it. For this one, you guys are watching this on youtube.

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.
