Concrete decorative techniques
Not-So-Gray-Matter is the title of an article in the January 2007 Log Home Living magazine. Techniques such as stamping and staining have made concrete more popular as flooring, countertops (now available as precast pieces), fireplace surrounds, and, of course, patios, driveways, etc. Jim Peterson of Concrete Network.com "estimates that using stamped concrete over ... brick and stone can save you a good half to two-thirds of the cost." And acid-etch staining and concrete engraving can perk up your old concrete walk.
