At first, I wasn’t sure that I liked the new color for the cement slab on the front porch. It’s light, but this is still darker than most of the other samples I had to choose from when I was at the store. For those wondering, the color is called Weathered Concrete by Valspar’s porch and floor paint.
However, after a second coat, the paint is looking a lot better than the old, dingy red paint that used to be. And the entire porch is looking brighter, which is always a good sign when remodeling an old house.
Clearly, the porch is still missing a few things, like something on the end to bring in a little more color. But we’re off to a good start, and it’s such a huge improvement from where it all started. (Different angle of course, but I never took a shot on the porch before I painted the rails)
I’ll be sharing more tomorrow about the new plans I have for sprucing up the porch. And speaking of tomorrow, I have a big announcement to share, so be sure to stop by!
