Lanterns and Concrete Stain for Front Steps?

Good Questions

Q: We are not crazy about the architectural design of our house. So we are covering it with wisteria and ivy. Someday we would like to add some stone work and a large antique door. But until then we are looking for a cheap simple solution for our boring steps. Would a dark grey concrete stain look good? Can you suggest some cool lanterns?
