Olympic Rescue It! A DIY Weekend Project and Giveaway!


Olympic Rescue It Before and After #sponsored #PrepMatters*This is a sponsored post for Olympic Paint, while I have been compensated all opinions are my own.

Last weekend I tested out Olympic Rescue It at my friend Paulina’s house.  Rescue it is a wood and concrete resurfacer.  The benefits of using Rescue It are:

  • Locks down splinters and fills cracks up to ¼″
  • Creates a barefoot friendly, finely textured, slip-resistant finish
  • Provides waterproofing protection

You can see Rescue It in action in this video here.  I highly suggest watching Olympic How To videos here as well as #PrepMatters.

This is the area we had to work with before we got started.

Olympic Rescue It Before #sponsored #PrepMatters

Day One: Prep Work – We started out clearing the space, sweeping the slab then we used Olympic Premium Deck Cleaner on the surface.  Since I had already used their deck cleaner on my own wood deck I knew this step would be a breeze. You simply spray the product on, let it sit for 10 minutes then rinse it off!  We let the concrete slab dry over night.

Day Two: On Sunday morning I went back to Paulina’s house to paint the slab using Rescue it.  Once the product was mixed well we were able to start rolling it out.  It took less than an hour to paint the surface!

I think this has been one of the easiest projects I have done to date.  The hardest part of the whole project was clearing the space off before the prep could be done, it was that easy!

If you have a deck or concrete slab that needs resurfacing definitely look into using Olympic Rescue It!  It just takes one weekend to give your space a whole new life!
