DIY Painted Concrete Pool Deck and Patio That Lasts!

By Lauren

Costly Outdoor Concrete Painting Mistakes You Should Know Before Starting

A word of caution: Do NOT use bright white concrete paint. It will basically burn your retinas in the bright sun. Even though lighter colors will help you have a cool deck on hot days, white paint is a big no-no.

(To be fair, we were in the depths of wrangling an ear-infection/colic-prone baby not sleeping through the night back when we made that mistake and that didn’t help our willingness to fix our mistake right away.)

Do not skip the ever-so-important prep work and priming before jumping into the patio painting part to ensure a long lasting finish. That thirsty concrete will gulp that paint right up resulting in an even more time-consuming, costly project. 

Always stir in a grip additive into your paint for slip resistance. If you don’t plan to make a slip-resistant surface, you will create a dangerous situation for yourself later. 

After over a year of looking at the start of this bad paint job attempt, we finally decided it was time to remedy this for good!
