Concrete Patio Turns into an Outdoor Living Room?

Who says a concrete patio isn’t pretty?

As you probably already know, a slab of concrete provides the perfect base for outdoor entertaining. You don’t have to pay to build a deck or even design a tiled or stone patio. The concrete can end up looking just as good for a fraction of the cost (plus minimal maintenance to boot!)
