    Alright mate, right click the model or object you are texturing. go down to *assign new material*.. an other menu will appear select *lambert*. then in the panel box to your right it has a list of options.. click the checkered box next to *colour*. Another pop up will appear.. select *file* then the panel box on the side will show up again.. click the little file image and attach any image you want from your desktop.. Then press f6 to view your textured object..

    Hope this is what you want :P

    I tried added sand to concrete stain as a way to make the surface less slippery. The sand didn't really adhere to the stain or the surface coat applied over the stain. However, my sister's father-in-law said crushed walnut shells work, claiming the shells were more absorbent than sand. I've never had the opportunity to test his theories. When it's all said and done, in most cases speciality products such as textured paints and stains would be your best bet. No need to experiment with ideas or concepts which may not work.
