      Brown Paper Flooring - try it with very dark, near black, stain. Also, see if I can find the directions for the wax/ craft paper floor.

    Concrete is tough and durable, and it's a construction material with many virtues. Beauty, however, is not one of them. There are many ways to make plain concrete more attractive, and one method is to paint it. You can even faux paint concrete to make it look like something else. Simulating a wood texture will make your cold concrete surface look warm and organic. Making very realistic woodgrain texture takes some effort, but even an amateur can manage it with the right tools and technique.
