What to use to paint outdoor chess board on concrete


Hi,
I would like to paint a 10x10 outdoor chess board on a driveway to a backyard shop. I'm not sure what would be best to use. Some ideas would be pool deck paint or concrete stain...What do you think?
Thank you,
Susan

If the driveway is clean, you could use a patio, porch and floor paint but it is unlikely to hold up well to lots of wear or if uncovered. I think concrete staining might be your best bet.

H & C Concrete stain will do the job.

Traffic Paint would be my first choice.

Those sound like great ideas. I hadn't even thought of traffic paint, and it turns out even home depot sells it. Seems like it would take the "traffic" of the chess pieces and the weather. Thank you.

Don't buy it from HD and expect it to hold up for long. Get something nice from a real paint store.
