Color illustrations are nothing like the result
I have plain concrete pavers that I wanted to stain to match already-installed pavers so I picked a color / shade that was as close as I could match to the illustrations on the Home Depot website. The illustrations show a speckled look, but what I got looked as if I had painted mustard on my pavers -- literally. Just a pasty, ugly yellow with no texture of any kind.

    Awesome product - follow the directions.
    This stuff is awesome. I was up in the air about whether to use the Valspar or the Beher. After reading a ton of reviews, decided to go with Behr. It didn't disappoint. Do the following... 1. rent a concrete grinder, etching does not produce the same results. 2. apply with a pump sprayer according to the directions. 3. Let dry for 24 hours before sealing.

      Concrete stain worked well
      First time trying this but happy with results. I wanted the Earth Fire color, and was instructed to apply the Cedar Blush first, which was very orange, but then applied Brownstone over it and got the color I was hoping for. I used a 3/4” roller. It is very thin and you do need to be careful about about drips and overlaps, but those worked out and added to the brick look of our stamped concrete walkway and driveway edging.

        Works incredibly well on old pavers!
        I’m so pleased with this stain! I bought too much thinking I would need several coats to stain my old, pink pavers to the Arctic black color. However 2 coats was sufficient! Highly recommend! NOTE: It would NOT stain new pavers. They may have been treated or something, and maybe that was the problem but I’d check first if you’re wanting to stain new ones.

          staining old concrete
          the concrete I have is very old as I'm sure it was poured in 1997. Even when I etched with muriatic acid it was so spotchy. So I decided to go with that. I bought 3 different colors of stain, a texture roller and went to work. I added more sploch. it came out an artsy distressed look and I love it.

            Love it!
            I wish it were a little thicker, but it's fine. We decided to do a mosaic look on our new stamped patio that didn't quite go with our reddish brown brick. I really like the result. We still need to have it sealed. It would have been nice if I could have bought them in quarts.

              Worked great to change toe color of a retaining wall
              I used the stain to change the color of a new 60' long 3' high interlocking block retaining wall that I just had installed. I went with the contractors recommendation to use gray rather than tan. The wall looked very "industrial" and did not fit with the backyard. I sprayed the wall with the stain and it looks 200% better and the wall now blends in with the surroundings, to my relief, because the wall cost a lot of money. I was able to use a garden sprayer to apply the stain and it was super easy to apply and then clean the sprayer with soap and water. I am very happy with the stain.

              Behr Decorative Concrete Stain
              Behr®, Decorative Concrete Stain. We chose to use a pump sprayer and used Graystone and accented with the Artic Black. Once dry, we applied the low luster sealer 1 coat and allowed to dry, I then added the Behr® anti-slip to the second gallon. Overall I am very pleased.
