Stenciled Concrete Patio

Last year we had a concrete pad poured and I knew I wanted to do something fun with it.


As soon as we started getting nice weather, I got to work.

Here’s a pic of the concrete pad before I got to work.


The first thing we did was move the shelter off and give it a good cleaning with the pressure washer.

For this project I used:

Nola Tile Stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils (I did alter it by cutting out the lines as I was using a textured paint that bled)


Here’s a link for so many amazing stencils!!


Rustoleum Stoneffects Slate Grey as the base color


Rustoleum Stoneffects Silver Beach as the stencil color


Rustoleum Stoneffects Sealer

I loved how the stencil came with line up points on the edges which made it easy to line up the stencil and make a straight pattern.

Once I got the hang of it, it ended up going faster. I found it easier to work with a small stencil brush instead of rolling. The paint I used was a textured paint- almost a glue like substance with sand.

Having a few starting points is helpful to continue while some are wet. The sun helped to dry these pretty fast and I didn’t do a thick coat of paint.

I love how the paint dried and gave the look of aged tiles. The paint product used also is a non-slip finish which is great.

I’m so proud of this project!!
