Patio Makeover: Recreation Vs. Relaxation

Host Chayse Dacoda's challenge is to merge recreational clubhouse style with a relaxing villa feel.

Colorful Stone Floor

Materials and Tools:

concrete paint
concrete sealer
skill saw with diamond blade
paint brushes
hose or equivalent water source


1. Chalk out the pattern on the concrete.
2. Using the skill saw, etch over the chalk pattern about a 1/4 inch shallow.
3. Mix the concrete paint with the concrete sealer and then paint each area a different color. We used grey, brown, rust and muted red.
4. Spray on water while painting to soften the brush strokes.
