    Yes I was very inspired to do my own driveway & walkway to match & maybe even my concrete porch; only a different colour to set them apart.

    Wow!! What an upgrade!


    I am a realtor and the first impression of a home when you walk up to the entrance defines the property. Blotchy, chipped concrete makes the home look older and adds an aura of disrepair. I’ve seen many paint jobs but this stain gave the beat finish I’ve seen. Thanks for sharing I’ve put that in my DIY collection to solve a common problem.
