  1. I love both of these patio spaces! The second one offers a Zen feel, and the first, a romantic one. I really want a patio that makes a statement and have been considering concrete paint, however I have attempted that on my own before and it was not pretty. Is this an epoxy paint on the concrete (bottom image) i am just curious if i need to resurface my patio, or if I could hire a professional to achieve this look with paint? Thanks for the ideas.
