I want to re-paint my friend's concrete patio...
The patio in question
(first 3 pictures) is concrete, 7 slabs roughly 7' x 7', but it in pretty rough condition. Optimally, I would like to paint the slabs maroon, with 2 large yellow/gold stenciled designs of their favorite college mascot
I can manage cleaning, maybe pressure washing, but if the entire thing needs to be scrapped, that would be a bit more effort than I want to put in.
I've seen concrete paint at home depot, but aside from that, what do I need to know? I've painted many interiors, but never on crete.
If it makes a difference, this project does not need to come out 'perfect'. The patio sees quite a lot of use, it gets a good baking in Arizona summers, and the homeowners are committed to the house for some time, most likely well past the patio needing another coat.
