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:

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

Steps:

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.
