Color in unexpected places

Unexpected updates or pops of color could make the difference in your home's appearance.  Two possibilities for making a statement are:
 
1.  I cannot count how many homes, even really big, expensive, fancy or new ones, have unfinished concrete floors leading up to the front door.  You know what I mean?  You walk up to a beautiful front door, but the floor underneath your feet is a bare grey concrete.  It bothers me.
There is an easy fix that will look like you spent a million dollars!  Have the concrete stained, sealed and coated to look like stone, or even marble.  Stain a pattern on it, like a star, or something.  Anything that will bring interest, charm, character or sophistication.  I personally prefer the look of polished stone - gorgeous!  Doing this will give a "finished" look to your home.
 
2.  Concrete garden items.
These could be statues, planters, fountains, birdbaths or nicknacks.  Paint some or all of them.  We recently painted a madonna (she is at least 60 years old).  She had been painted before, but the paint was badly weathered and flaking.  Look on the website under Artistic Effects for before and after pictures.  She's stunning!
Items such as concrete planters could benefit from color.  To prepare any concrete item, make sure it is squeeky clean.  Brush off all loose debris and paint, use a good primer, let dry, paint and use a good topcoat - 2-3 coats of it.
Oh, and if there are any cracks or missing pieces, you can fix those using Thoroseal, which is akin to concrete, easy to work with and lasts forever!
 
Keep looking for the unexpected item to add color and charm to your house.  Happy painting!
