Yes! Exactly! :-)

both sides of some plywood, then install it, and call it good.  In my last
(enclosed) trailer, I used Behr porch paint on the floor, with play sand mixed
in for traction.  That worked, too, but I didn't keep it long.

Any thoughts on the longevity of the sand? I will be putting down some kind of
non-skid, and didn't think sand would stay adhered to the paint for long.
