    Check out my blog post

    We used some amazing concrete paint and it still looks good a year later. After each winter we do have to clean it up but my kids just scrubbed it and used a hose on it yesterday. Looks great still.

    Hi Cathy, you could clean the driveway really well, tape of a wide (6-12") area on each side of the driveway and paint it a contrasting color to the concrete. Maybe stencil some design onto the strip just painted or paint the entire driveway, use a stencil to make the driveway look like bricks or oh so many other creative ways. Perhaps these ideas will inspire you to think of other ways. Consider it a big canvas but ensure if you have an HOA that it is within their rules.

    How about edging it with brick?

    My neighbor edged his with pavers, and used concrete stain on the entire driveway. It has lasted well for about 4 years but I see it is starting to fade.
