    Toying with the idea of putting some sort of flooring down in my shed where I park the Senator and my daily.  I like the look of black and white.  Anyone done anything?  I don’t want to spend a heap of $$, I see you can buy lock together tiles but the price adds up when you start talking an area that’s roughly 6m x 6m.  Anyone tried using maybe regular vinyl flooring?

    Harder to do a checker pattern but epoxy paint sealer kits are great in that they are easy to clean. Having one consistent colour improves the appearance of the shed, and having a gloss on it also reflects the light, making the area seem brighter.

    ^lol with the axminster, maybe I could get Pro Heart to come and paint it for me :)

    Really would like something with a bit of look to it rather than one single colour, or at least maybe checker plate kinda look (I think) if anyone else has any pics of what they have done would like to see them :good:

    Painting is probably the best way to go, I guess you could mask out a lot of squares………

    I used secondhand carpet tiles. Got enough to do two double sheds for about $400 from memory. There was a guy selling them on Gumtree. He dismantled shops for a living and had heaps of it. Went through it all and got the best ones. I’ll try and find his number, was out Angle Vale way I think.

    Looks good, where did you get the kit and how much?
