Hi Doris, here's some ideas that might help you decide on just what you want to do and provide guidance on how to do it. You can really make the area unique!
Check out some of these ideas:
Draw out your design on the concrete and start painting with Floor paint for garages. Comes in a number of colours - Black, Grey, Green.Red, Blue, Yellow and I think White. Enjoy the process. You can use a sealer on top to preserve the design.
I agree with johnavallence82. There is a specific paint made to be used on concrete. Sealing your hard work will make it last longer. Don't forget to scrub the concrete first. And allow to dry completely. And use a kneeling pad or knee pads for this project. Good luck Doris.
