  • Project Completed In: 7 day(s)
  • Estimate of Square Footage: 1000 sq. ft.
  • Project Description:
    We have several large retaining walls construct with Vertablock. The grey concrete color was bland and soul sucking. I have wanted to stain the block from the start but was intimidated by the scope of the project. I was so excited to come across your EasyTint product. Stain and sealer in one!! It was what I needed to take the leap and I’m so excited I did.
  • Personal Tips:
    Any one can do it!
    Use a good sprayer and wait for a calm day.
    Less is more. Drips ( vertical surface) are your enemy. You can always come back and add more color to some areas.
    Even the satin finish has some sheen to it.

  • Project Completed In: 3 day(s)
  • Estimate of Square Footage: 80 sq. ft.
  • Project Description:
    I created a cast concrete basin for a wall fountain in my backyard. I then stained the concrete to match the face that I already owned. Using the free design consolation was really helpful in choosing the correct stain color to match, and which sealants to use.
  • Personal Tips:
    One tip is to make sure to properly mask off any areas you don’t want stained. Another tip is to contact Direct Colors with any questions you have. The final stain color is exactly what I wanted and the customer service team really helped choosing the perfect match.
  • Direct Colors Products Used:
    Antiquing Stain (Cumin), Acrylic Solvent Based Exterior Sealer (Satin), and Penetrating Sealer
  • Other Products Used:
    Water and baking soda to clean concrete; spray bottle, foam brushes, and nap roller.
