Which is first concrete paint or floor leveling compound?
 
I was going to paint my concrete basement floor with a moisture barrier paint. but I was also going to pour some self levelling concrete to fill in a few bad spots.

Which should I do first?

thanks

I would think that would be first.

If that water proof paint is cement based don't expect it to survive long on the floor. It is very brittle and will fracture easily.

Yikes----Self leveling compound is to soft for use as a finished floor---it will be all scraped and gouged in no time----

Have you considered using an epoxy compound such as is used on garage floors?? Also, one of the companies that does spray-on bedliners for trucks (Line-X I think) has products for use on concrete floors and patios.
