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.

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.

    Thanks for a great post. Easiest way to remove old glue from tile we removed. With our aches and pains it's hard. Huge power water pressure we rented was out of the question. Thanks for any help. Even a hammer and chisel are too hard for us....

    Looks wonderful, but I probably would have sanded and stained it. Thanks for all the tips on the Restore Paint though. I might have to try it.
