Our concrete acid stain project was a family room in a new construction home- we love the results!

“We finished our summer kitchen concrete countertop project. We applied several thin layers of Coffee Brown Acid Stain Project Gallery and Malayan Buff Acid Stain. We are extremely happy with how it turned out. We sealed the surface with three coats of Krystal Kote Water-based Sealer. Thank you for all of your advice through a series of phone conversations!”

“Just finished our basement floor. Looks great! Love how it turned out. We used the Azure Blue and for a terrific marble effect. The way the acid stain color picks up the light at different angles gives the floor a different hue. Thanks for your advice and great service to help make this do it yourself project a success.”

I used real plant leaves and made leaf patterns with your easy to use concrete acid stain on some of these patio pavers and marbled others and the end result turned out beautiful. My neighbors said I could make more and sell them, they were so nice. I just read the directions and then started staining.
