Sprinkle a few drops of water on your floor to determine whether a sealant has been applied to it. The water will soak quickly into the concrete if the floor isn't sealed. If the floor is sealed, water will bead up, and you won't be able to stain it. You may be able to find chemicals to remove sealant at your home-improvement center.
Use a paintbrush to stain the floor near corners (Image 1), then roll paint onto the floor with a short-napped roller (Image 2). Work in 3' sections, and be careful not to paint yourself into a corner. Allow the first coat to dry for 2 hours, then apply a second coat of undiluted stain.
Make sure no one walks on the floor for at least 24 hours, and avoid parking on the floor for three days.
