DIY concrete stain?



I'd like to paint/stain our cracked concrete patio to look like stones. Is there a cheaper paint or stain I can use than the specific concrete stain at the home center. I notice when I drip wood deck stain on the concrete that it seems to stay

    To go cheap, use the least expensive oil base stain or paint you can find. Mix the paint/stain with paint thinner in a 50-50 solution. That is one gallon of paint to one gallon of paint thinner. Use a roller on a long pole or a string mop for a swirled effect or a broom for speckled color. Start painting :)
