Outdoor Painted Flooring and Stained Concrete Floors

If you like to be involved in the process and you like DIY projects, you should take outdoor painted flooring into consideration.  It’s all about the correct materials. If you’re working with porous stone, concrete or brick outdoor flooring, visit your local home improvement store and ask for help.

If you layer your paints by starting with a neutral color and painting over it (when dry) with a bright color, you’ll achieve a lovely patina when the paint starts to wear down.
