Painted Concrete Porch With a Stone Stencil


I pressure washed my porch many times but could not get all the stains out/off, so I decided to paint it and use the stone stencil to give it a stone look finish with more colors.
First I painted the whole thing with one color so that it would look like a mortar or grout when I used the stencil with the other colors. I used 3 other colors in each of the blocks of the stencil and used a brush to scrub them into the concert which made each one come out a different look or color of stones.
It made the porch a little cozier while sitting out in my swing. I spend more time on the porch now, in my swing.

    My porch looks just like yours except mine extends to a slightly sloped sidewalk which is uncovered. I’m wondering if the paint would hold up and also wonder if paint might be slippery?

      I used spray paint and it has held up with nothing added to it or any kind of coating. It is not slippery at all

    did you use spray paint? What kind of brush did you use to scrub the color into the cement?

    What kind of paint did you use to paint the porch? We have been wanting to do something like this with our porch.
