    I could not get that thing out of his hands! He rolled and rolled and rolled. Then the next day he asked where the roller was, and was upset I had not bought it because he wanted to roll some more.

    Looks good! I'll consider vinyl tiles for my new darkroom.

    I had my sheet vinyl floor laid a long time ago. Even though I got stain-resistant material, it wasn't the high end stuff.

    Guess what? Stains!

    So, my advice to others, get the best you can.

    I will say the color of the stains kind of go with the color of the sheet vinyl. Good choice on my part, I guess.

    So I got some commercial VCT sealer and wax today. I also got a micropore mop as an applicator. It recommends 2 or 3 coats of the sealer. I have one coat down now and am waiting for it to dry.

    The sealer indicates on the jug that it aids in preventing stains.

    I put two coats of sealer down then covered it with a single coat of wax. It looks great without buffing. I'll see how long it holds up.

    Adjust the initial row in the center so you cut off the same on both sides.

    Always plan so you don`t have to put in a sliver somewhere to finish.

    Getting ready to finish up the floor. This is the area where the 8x10 enlarger lives:

    I rolled it out of the way and I'll do the tile under the enlarger first, then roll it back and do the rest of the floor.

    I'm doing the floor adjacent to the darkroom floor and spent some time deciding on the best way to cover some expansion joints in the concrete. I came across this product and ordered it today. We will see how well it works. (Picture shows Schluter DILEX)

    Basement floors can be tricky because of the moisture that often comes up through the floor. I had a basement darkroom where I used the 2 part epoxy paint, and after a while it peeled. I ended up covering the floor with rubber mats like these:
    Grizzly floor mats The rubber mats worked well, although they didn't look as nice as the epoxy paint did before it started peeling.
