Stamped concrete, phase I of the dream...NEWBIE party started!

Coming along here, coming along!
Stamped concrete is an interesting process.
It is a lot cheaper than pavers or real stone, so we opted for that route.
Glad we did. It will give us room for a few other things we have been
dreaming of in the future.
If you recall this is was our outdoor area a few weeks ago...

I sure will not miss all that pinestraw...

 This was the first step after the poured concrete. 
 They then throw this powder coating on, that oxidized the color.  They take these rubber stamps and literally stamp them into the concrete. It is like a puzzle...

We love the color, the texture and the pattern!

 Soon our fireplace will go on the surface, along with some other fun outdoor goodies,
 furniture and decor..
I plan on bringing lots of color from the indoors out.

The total extra square footage is around 450 sq. ft.  Certainly wonderful for outdoor entertaining.
I can't wait to show you phase II, soon.

NEWBIE party guidelines:
Blogging 6 months or less, and or LESS than 100 followers.
Please follow along my blog as well.
Add my link or button to your post so that others may find out about the party.
If you have word verification on, please consider NOT!
Thank you....

Love the stamped concrete. That is our next project here. We are using a round head stone pattern for our stamp. Luckily my hubby can do it and has everything. Looks great Debbie, you made the right choice.

Debbie, that is so wonderful. That is the same thing we had done to the end of our driveway last year. Yes, much cheaper than pavers. You are going to really enjoy this area.

This is such a great idea! We have a courtyard at our home in Florida and this may be a good solution for changing it from flat concrete! ♥

Debbie!! That is looking awesome!!! What a big difference! I will tell you to be careful when it is wet. Several of our neighbors in Michigan had the stamped concrete and we watched many a child slip and fall when it was wet so just be careful! I can't wait to see all that you will do out there! It will be a colorful dream, I am sure!

We tossed this idea back and forth, but with our weather, decided that pavers were the way to go. Isn't it amazing what we live with before we take the plunge and do something about it? I'll be living in a state of MESS for another month or so until our project is done. But it should turn out great. Just like yours will, as well. :-)

Patio came out GREAT, I really love the stamped concrete. We're getting estimates now on a patio for the yard. Can't wait until it's done. My yard is huge and we never did anything with it in the 10 yrs we've lived here. It's time! Can't wait to see how you decorate yours.
