Step 1.) Tape a regular boring patio to look like tile. Step 2.) Use a paint roller with a long handle to paint the entire area with a cement stain in whatever color you choose. Step 3.) you can choose to use another layer of a cement gloss if you want a more finished look. Step 4.) Remove the tape and enjoy your new sophisticated patio! So cool and easy! Only about $20-$30 for all the materials and it makes a huge difference.
