Restore Paint for 100 Year Old Porch

Many thanks for everyone who commented on a prior post about Restore paint. I really appreciated all the great comments and put them into action on my most recent project with the product-which I'd not used before. The before and after pics tell a great story! If you want all the details and some tips that might be helpful they're all on my blog post. Have a great weekend. http://www.homerepairtutor.com/restore-paint-project-for-100-year-old-porch/
Paint Stripped 100 Year Old Porch
Newly redone 100 Year Old Porch with Restore Paint
I had my wife, Kerri, choose the color (she's better at this part than me) based on our trim and porch combination. We chose Fieldstone which in retrospect was a fantastic choice.
The first step in my restoration process involved stripping most of the old paint off the wood floor boards. This was accomplished with Behr Stain & Finish Stripper.
Supplies I used for this paint project. They were a 5 gallon bucket, 4 gallons of Restore paint, paint stirrer, Restore paint roller kit, 4 inch paint brush, extension pole for paint roller (didn't use, though), and paper towels.
