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.
Painted Concrete Porch With a Stone Stencil
All done and cozy now!
This is right after a pressure washed it. Still stained.
The stencil I got from Lowe's
It took me a couple of days but it was worth the time.
Reds browns caramel and linen colors mixed and brushed into the concrete.
