Concrete around our pool

FullhouseontheriverFebruary 6, 2012

Hi! Has anyone ever painted their concrete pool area and if so how did it turn out? Ours looks awful and I would like to stain or paint it but have heard a few stories from people that they stained their's and had bad results. I am so tired of our ugly, dull pool surround. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

If it's already dull and ugly, what have you got to lose? You may also want to contact a company that does an acrylic overlay, like Kool-Deck or something similar. If your concrete's in decent shape, it's not a bad way to go.

Thanks marcinde for responding! I agree with you I should do something because it is ugly. I am more of a do it myself type person so I think I will try some type stain. We spend so much time out there during the summer I want it to be right so Im a little nervous about it.
