Patio with Spanish Tile

My clients wanted to transform their 700 square foot cement deck into a "paver look" with inlaid Spanish Tile.

~ And another before ~

~ The coat of primer .  I used tape to create grout lines ~

~ Faux Painted and removing some of the tape to reveal the grout lines ~

~ In progress ~ 

 ~ Cement has been painted and glazed  ~

~ Here is a sample of the inlaid look of faux painted Spanish tile ~

~ And the finished product.  Viola! ~

  1. Hello there! This blog post could not be written any better!
    Looking through this article reminds me of my previous
    roommate! He always kept talking about this.
    I will send this article to him. Fairly certain he'll have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

  2. Beautiful job! What kind of paint was used and what colors of paint did you use to create the Spanish tile look?
    And what type of sealer? Really would like to try this for myself! Thanks!

    1. I used Life Deck products, bought at my local Paint Store. I don't believe the bigger warehouses carry it. I prep the cement, use a primer Life Deck color for the eventual grout lines....measure, tape...and then I mix two to three glazes...working very fast, so they don't dry on me...and blend them with a good grade cheesecloth. I think rags would work for the blending...and then soften with cheesecloth. Keep from going over the tape onto an already done tile, as it will darken it. Try to keep each tile clean, as the prints will show through. Remove the tape as soon as an area is dry to the touch. The seepage...is still wet enough to wipe off with a damp cloth, without disturbing the lines. (if your hand is steady). Give it a day to dry...and then seal it with a uv protective satin concrete sealer. One whole day or more to dry...before the second coat...repeating the process. You can buy already mixed glazes too...I just like making my own. I used red iron oxides..and browns...Good Luck!

    2. Hello, To "Anonymous" I'm sorry that I didn't see your question sooner. Not using "wordpress". I created the blog using Google Blogspot, which is free. No, you don't need to know code to make the blog work. It's relatively easy to get started... can be a little complicated and frustrating to add posts to the blog and make them appear like you want them to. It takes a little bit of time to become comfortable with the format - but after using it for a while, you'll get the hang of it.

      Good luck!
