Answer: 
I am doing mine now, and solid advice seems to be Quikrete 873002 Concrete Cure And Seal Satin Finish for $22 at HD. You can also use it (if properly sealed) around the sink where it will get wet.

Answer: 
of course it will depend upon how much water you use. but I was able to faux finish my 13' X 22' living room floor like wood at about 1/4" thick.
I mixed only what I could apply with in 15 mins. this sets up fast.

Answer: 
one whole box would probably do an inch thick by 35" wide by 22(ish)" deep. After doing three counters about that size, that would be my guess

549 7 lb. FeatherFinish Patch and Skimcoat is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used for concrete counter tops We used this product to "overcoat" the concrete counter tops we built. I used a 3/4" piece of plywood, covered with aluminum grating screwed to it. Pre-drilled holes for sink and faucet and plugged them. Installed trim on the front to hold in the concrete. Poured concrete and let it dry. At that point we used the Featherfinish to fill in the remaining area to make it level with the top of the front trim sanding as needed in between. After 30 days, stained and sealed it. Looks great! The only advice I will give for the featherfinish is that it is easier to use in thinner layers. We did 3 counters and the thinner you do it the easier it is to work with. You can do it thick and you can stain and seal it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Floor prep Works well, easy to apply, only issue is drying time longer than stated

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MIX IN SMALL BATCHES ONLY THIS PRODUCT DRIES SUPER FAST SO ONLY MIX ABOUT A CUP OR TWO OF POWDER IN A 1-2 GALLON PAIL WITH A FLAT BOTTOM FOR EASE OF MIXING. YOU HAVE ONLY ABOUT 10-15 MIN. TO APPLY IT. USE A 2"+ PUTTY KNIFE TO MIX. ONLY ADD SMALL AMOUNTS OF WATER AT A TIME. WHEN ADDING WATER MIX FREQUENTLY UNTIL IT IS CONSISTENCY OF PANCAKE BATTER FOR SKIM COATING. THICKER FOR A DEEPER PATCH AND IT WILL DRY QUICKER. USING WIDE DRYWALL KNIVES MAKES SKIMMING A WIDE AREA EASIER. IF IN A HURRY PUT A FAN ON IT TO ACCELERATE DRYING. BE SURE TO NOT STOP WHEN APPLYING AS AFTER ABOUT 15 MIN. IT WILL NOT BE WORKABLE AND THE EXCESS WILL NEED TO BE TOSSED OUT. THE DEEPER THE PATCH THE MORE LIKELY A 2ND COAT WILL BE NEEDED. SAND IT IN BETWEEN COATS FOR BEST FINISH. WHEN DONE IMMEDIATELY RINSE YOUR KNIVES AND BUCKET CLEAN IN WATER.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goes on as thin as you want, and it's easy to work with. I was kind of testing for concrete count... Goes on as thin as you want, and it's easy to work with. I was kind of testing for concrete countertops in the kitchen/bath, so I put it on my shelf in the garage (over some Cement-All). I really did NOT try hard to make it look nice - by this point I was just trying to make it smooth. I also bought a used kitchen countertop to test with, and it went on well. Don't add to much water - it gets weaker if you do so. I'll probably actually use the rest on my basement floor for some leveling, the way it's designed to get used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this stuff is great... i am a 60 year old DYI person. it would have been too expensive to tile my downstairs (slab). I decided to create the wood floors I wanted that would stand up to my husband in regard to the cleaning issue. I removed all carpet and any fake tile. cleaned my floors well and let dry. I mixed henry's to a slightly thicker consistency than pancake batter. I poured on the floors. let it set for ONLY A FEW MINUTES, scored my planks and ran a wood graining tool along the planks. after I did the entire room I let it dry. I sanded the floor lightly and as necessary to smooth out. vacuumed well. I wanted dark floors so I watered down some rustoleum black paint. used a roller to apply. let dry. for a weathered look I sanded areas to remove the paint. sealed with cement sealer. I get so many comments about my wood floors. I can scrub my floors with a brush and they still look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was looking for a leveling product that would adhere to an old wood floor and not crack and com... I was looking for a leveling product that would adhere to an old wood floor and not crack and come loose. I was going over the old floor with 1/2" plywood and needed to fill a few dips that would have been a pain to shim. I tested a small patch of the 549 on plywood and it adhered well and stayed somewhat flexible. This product has great adhesion, mixed up and spread fairly easily and trowels to a feather edge. It is very sticky to start, can be screaded with a board and sets fairly quickly. As it firms up and becomes less sticky you can scread and trowel to a smoother finish. Smaller patches will be easier, I was working an area that was 6'x10' and 1/2" low and used 6 boxes. Building up and filling in in stages. Other levelers are mixed to a creamy consistency and pour out and self level. I was warned these would probably break up and loosen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I found a Pinterest project to update countertops using a more expensive type of concrete and in the comments section of the project someone mentioned this product can be used in it's place, it being just as good and quite a bit less expensive. I'm a novice. This stuff is easy to use and made my countertops look brand new and cool and different. They don't joke around when they say it dries fast too. I made smaller amounts more often and it helped tremendously to cut down waste.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Seized up solid in under 5 minutes I bought this to apply to a small laundry room floor. Got only one trowel's worth out of it. You either have to keep stirring to keep it soft or you have to accept that it will seize solid within 5 minutes of your stopping. I followed the directions to the letter -- and watch my money solidify in the bucket.
