Painting a Front Walk

3 materials
I had a problem with my front walk. it had a big hole that just seemed to get bigger every year, it got so big that we decided that it needed to be fixed. the hole was 3 feet wide and 4 feet long, so we filled in the hole, it took six bags of cement to fill it in. then I noticed that the hole was a different color then the rest of the front walk.
so I got this idea to paint the walk. I just didn't know how I was going to do it. I just didn't want to paint it all one color. then I saw a post of someone that painted their front porch with spray paint and a cement mold. I knew with the size of the walk way it would have taken a lot of spray paint. then I got an idea why not paint it with paint made for cement. I chose 5 colors, a light gray for the base color,( it took 2 1/2 gallons) and four for the stone look.( a gallon of each color) it took me 4 days to paint it. I had to let the base paint dry for 48 hours. or it would have been done in two days,
everyone that has seen it loves it. and now my neighbor wants to do t to his front walk. I want to thank that person with the mold idea for giving me my idea. I had so much fun. I have enough paint left over that I can do my back porch now.

first painted the red brick with barn yard red paint. then I painted the whole walk way a light gray color. and painted the red brick with barn yard red paint.
I even painted the steps with this paint. this paint is a heavier paint the other paints I think it has sand mixed in to it.
I chose dark brown, gray, tan and rust. for the stone look.
I had to do some free hand the mold didn't fit.
I then painted the stairs the dark brown
I even painted the cement steps by the front gate. everyone who sees this loves the colors and makes my front yard look so much nicer
