So I feel like I got a good start on Saturday...figured out the steps to take, products to use and began
perfecting working on my technique. One thing I did discover was that the cement mix didn't go as far as I thought it would. I went through a 20 pound pail for just that one stretch of one wall. Lowes doesn't carry the 50 pound bag, so I'm going to have to search that out.
