Boring Concrete Porch to Fabulous!

Easy

I wanted to do something different for my porch.. But I just didn't know what. My neighbor had thrown her wicker furniture to the garbage and I knew that I had to have it. That's when the idea came to me....and so it begins.
I basically confided in a friend what kind of paint to use. Semi gloss indoor/outdoor paint.
Painted the porch white first.
Let it dry over night
Paint White! I was impatient so I didn't paint a second coat.
I sectioned off with painters tape. I did not measure.
I then painted with semi gloss black indoor/outdoor paint.
It was not perfect.. But perfect for me.
Notice my inspirational wicker 😍.

    Indoor /outdoor high gloss yet it doesn't look shiny which is great, or did I miss something? Is it sold in many colors?

      I did not use a sealant. My inspiration came from a building that was torn down and all that was left was a black and white tile floor. It was kinda neat. BUT... When I saw my neighbor had tossed her brown wicker furniture to the road.. I knew that I had to paint it black and pull it together with the porch.

    No sealer. Porch is not very big. I have a rug in the middle.. But so far so good. I'm sure if you put a sealer on it would do much better. I like the worn look.

    So far so good, I like the worn look. So far not worn down.
