Stained Concrete

Technically this should be a 'cold' space.  Concrete, glass, iron.

Instead, with staining of the concrete, there is warmth & invitation.
Pressure wash?  Never.

When I first got my cement urns and put them on the front of my house...I rubbed dirt all over them. I didn't like how new they looked. Now I have had them 8 years and they get better and better as time goes. I love the look of weathered concrete! Love your inspiration photo!

Love weathered concrete. Well, I love patina on anything, actually. :)

I sometimes am tired of all the colored concrete our region's budgets dictate, but you show how warm that durable material can be in the right mind and hands!
