  • Project Completed In: 5 day(s)
  • Estimate of Square Footage: 850 sq. ft.
  • Project Description:
    Large concrete patio and sidewalk poured and stamped but never the color or dimensional look I had envisioned. A few years ago when we were ready to seal, I looked into re-staining, but was going to have to acid wash and then stain. So many steps and didn’t want to ruin my landscaping. This year before sealing, I looked again and found this product. It sounded perfect for my project. My husband thought it was going to be too dark, but I am glad I went for the darker color. It really added the dimension I was looking for. As you can see from the AFTER photos, it was PERFECT!!
  • Personal Tips:
    Have roller ready in case your sprayer doesn’t work properly. Watch the video demonstration before beginning. Always plan for it to take longer than you think it will.

  • Project Completed In: 5 day(s)
  • Estimate of Square Footage: 70 sq. ft.
  • Project Description:
    I went to Lowe’s first because I wanted to stain my porch concrete to a dark color.  I was guided to use Valspar semitransparent concrete stain.  I chose the charcoal color for the most coverage, I thought. Being that part of my concrete is extremely porous, uneven and had used peroxide on it in the past it did not take well.

I then was referred to Direct Colors by a friend. I purchased the Antiquing black and russet stains to cover my porch and leave some contrast and design.  Again the Antiquing black stain did not absorb in many areas, even after 2 layers. The russet seemed to cover very well but did not give me the look I wanted due to the Antiquing black not absorbing.  So I was directed to use the russet all over, then given the black Portico to spray all over that x 2 layers.  This is what finally worked and we love the look!  Ty Direct Colors for your guidance, patience and generosity!

  • Personal Tips:
    The Russet Antiquing was the base layer I needed to absorb due to its larger pigments for my porous concrete. The Portico is what I needed instead of the Antiquing due to its double pigments.

  • Project Completed In: 4 day(s)
  • Estimate of Square Footage: 350 sq. ft.
  • Project Description:
    I was looking to recolor and stain my rather ugly orange patio that was there when I moved in. The patio was stamped so I knew there had to be a way to make it look good. Luckily, I found Direct Colors and got just the result I wanted. I mixed charcoal and black Antiquing stain to create a deep dark color which slightly showed the previous orange, creating a natural look. Then I sealed it to pop the color.  I love it!

 

  • Personal Tips:
    If you are covering an old color that is very bright, make sure to buy enough stain. It took me multiple layers due to the bright orange that was there before. Other than that, it was a rather simple process.  I mixed some anti slip into the final sealer to ensure a finish that was also safe.

Charcoal, Fern Green, Driftwood & Russet Antiquing Stains on Stamped Concrete Patio
  • Project Completed In: 3 day(s)
  • Estimate of Square Footage: 336 sq. ft.
  • Project Description:
    I made a stamped concrete patio, stamped to look like slate. I then used antiquing stain in 4 separate colors to stain each tile individually, then I put a top coat of charcoal to darken it all up. I then put one coat of the satin sealant followed by a final coat with the non slip powder.
  • Personal Tips:
    I used a brush to stain each square, then sprayed the charcoal top coat with a pump sprayer then rolled the sealer on after it was dry.
