9) So now you must be thinking what else can I paint?! Well your sidewalks and driveways of course! A neighbor of mine did this a few years back and it looked great! You do not need to tear up your driveway and redo the whole thing, just get some heavy duty outdoor concrete paint and a really big paint roller! Make sure to wash your driveway prior to painting and shoot for a day that is hot so the paint dries fast to make sure no debris gets stuck in the paint. Here are some ideas of what you can do!
