I was so pleased with the DIY project on our back patio! I stained the concrete to look like tile. We used painter's tape to create the look of grout lines, and we used a concrete stain from Lowe's to stain the concrete. For a step by step tutorial, just click on the link below.

About a year ago I purchased what was supposed to be concrete stain from Lowes. After a few
months it was chipping and pealing off. Cost was around $80 with the etching product. My permanent solution was to beltsand off the stain and install ceramic tile on our patio. Cost was about $400 but it is a permanent solution here in Phoenix. Have pics if anyone is interested.........
