Our home is 80% covered in siding and the rest is just concrete. The concrete was painted white once upon a time to match the white/black siding. There is a crack or two in the paint and I'd like to fix this.. is this doable /DIY??

Here is a suggestion. First you would have to scrape off any loose paint around the area. This will leave a surface difference. Purchase a hydraulic cement which bonds better, dries quicker and is easier to smooth out. You could also apply a bonding agent.
Wet the surface slightly before applying. Before it totally dries, use a piece of concrete block or very rough sandpaper to blend in. Allow to dry completely before painting.
Hope this was helpful
