Painted Concrete Porch With a Stone Stencil

by Sheila
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.
All done and cozy now!
This is right after a pressure washed it. Still stained.
The stencil I got from Lowe's
Getting started
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.

    I have a stained cement porch. I would like to paint it. That looks like a lit of work for a 73 year old woman. Is there anything I could do that is a lit easier?

    I really like what you did with the porch, I plan on trying that.

    I am inspired. Did you do any preparation? Did you use a paint especially made for cement. What was the drying time?
