    Use a paint made for cement. First, make sure the porch is completely clean and dry, then apply the paint as directed on the can. It typically brushes or rolls on like regular house paint.

    Lowe's sells paint that works on bricks. You might want to explore it.

    Hello Eileen, I too would like to paint (or stain) my front porch and walkway. I know that Home Depot sells concrete paint. It's a Behr product. and Michele is right. You just paint it right on your cement. Hope this helps you. Good luck.

    I just ordered a stone look stencil to use on my concrete porch. I'm going to paint the porch with light concrete paint then do the stencils in a deeper color. I might do the stencils in dark concrete color, light rust, and light blue - mixing up the colors on the stencils as I go.

    Porch and Floor paint at Lowes. If never painted before you will want to etch it first for adhesion. Apply 2 coats of paint. The first coat will act as a prime-second coat final finish

    You have 100 square feet. A gallon will do up to 400 square feet. By the time you buy 2 qts. a couple more dollars and you can buy a gal.
