Yes, although it was several years ago so I don't know what products are currently on the market. We used a semi-transparent stain from Dupont. It was pretty forgiving stuff to work with. Make sure the surface is clean and be sure to mask-off anything you don't want stained. Use a short-nap roller (1/4 or so). Cut it in with a brush and role real close to the edges. I think you'll find it's easier to work with the stuff early in the day when the concrete is cool, and don't do it in direct sun if you can help it.
