    I'm sure you can stain it, but you can also pick from numerous colors which have sparkles, and different textures that would give your house contrast. Think about it. Homedepot or Lowe's paint department has available samples you could look at and decide if you like them.

    I have used concrete stain many times and have always been pleased with it.

    Got it from Home Depot, it has a good selection of colors, cannot remember the brand. Make very sure to etch the concrete, I actually used vinegar, washed the concrete well, rinse, then let dry well. I rolled it on, dries quick, and can put a second coat if needed, it also comes in a translucent colors. I use opaque. I let dry, then took real palm leaf, and light green spray paint, spraying over leaf with short strokes, and made tropical leaves on it. Do like it and many good comments. Wish you well

    Forgot I did this on my home in South Florida, love it would never use paint, it always peels.
