Tape Off Pavers

Create your desired design using painter's tape, knowing this area will remain light gray (the original look of the paver).

Apply Stain

Roll the area you wish to stain with concrete dye in your desired color. We went with a darker shade of charcoal to match the home. Don’t forget to stain the edges. Once dry, remove the painter’s tape.

Apply Sealant

Roll a wet look sealant on parts of your paver to get a lighter shade of gray and glossier look. Multiple coats of this type of sealant can give your pavers a glossy look, but it will take several coats because pavers are porous. Be sure to coat the edges.

Step 4

Place Pavers

Place pavers in desired pattern. To accent the geometric design of our pavers, we placed them diagonally along the pathway.
