Our New Haint Blue Porch Ceiling

I've shown you the new roof which I love by the way. Now it's time for the house painting itself. Today I share with you the porch ceiling that I've wanted for a few years.

Porch ceiling before painting. It is dirty and dingy. The house itself is especially where the shutters were. It is a wonderful time for a face lift even though a hurricane gave us the reason. We are glad to have it done.

Beginning to remove shutters so the ceiling can be painted and the house itself washed. This is getting real! I'm excited!

Looks pretty dark here, but the color changes with the lighting.
I've looked at it all times of the day and it is a virtual chameleon.
I love it!

The white of the porch and home aren't painted yet in these pictures.
And yet it still shows a crisp, clean look
The ceiling has a little more finishing as well
Isn't it pretty?

Last shot of ceiling
More painting of porch railings and house front
The floor has to be stained as well
I will be painting these Cracker Barrel Rockers
They really need it!
It was hard to do picking the right color.
I finally narrowed it down to two and let Chuck pick the one he liked best.
I thought it was a little too blue and darker than I would like.
I also wanted some aqua into the mix.
The sky overhead changes moment to moment here so it really doesn't matter.
I have grown to really like it!
Time was getting away we had to choose.
My girls will be happy with this little bit of color I've added!

    I did this on my sunroom ceiling, it's perfect! I got the idea from my college roommate, she did it on her sunroom ceiling and then did it on the ceiling of a very dark hallway and painted the walls white, really brightened the hall up and looks

    This is really true! It's a tradition that actually started in Louisiana, of all places. But, I have painted my front porch blue and it really works.

    I had my porch ceiling painted blue last spring. I never had a spider or wasp set up home this year. My Kansas City friends laughed and questioned my decision. Now they believe when this Southern girl tell 'em. I'm slowly seeing my neighbors

    understand the color blue on the ceiling of a porch deters birds from being a pest

      I have loved the birds actually for years but now that it is so clean out there I really hope they nest on the back porch...
