How to Color Stain Concrete

Ask This Old House mason Mark McCullough demonstrates how to dress up concrete by using a stain


  1. Pour the concrete stain into a bucket.
  2. Apply the stain to the concrete the same way you’d apply paint to a wall.
  3. If it looks like it needs it, apply a second coat.

Mark demonstrated a Sherwin-Williams concrete stain in Light Gray. Usually, one coat will provide adequate coverage.
