re stain/paint deck?

We built a deck a bit ago, and my boyfriend found a gallon of stain on sale for $5 and decided to go for it, we tested it out and it looked quite pink, but we went ahead with it...

It looks terrible, we found out it was basically terra colored, so now we have a very pink, actually its exactly salmon colored patio.

We will let it sit for a while and see what happens, but is there anything we can do? I will sneak a photo later.

I would pressure wash the deck, pick a different color & use it.

Patio or deck? If deck, Pulpo has it nailed.

Any stain that only cost $5 [even if it was 1/2 price mistint] won't last very long. I'd reclean and restain. What type of stain was it? I'd rarely ever recommend using paint on a deck.
