  • 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 antique black and russet stain to cover my porch and leave some contrast and design. Again the antique 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 antique 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.
