Simple Stenciled Porch Step for a Quick Summer Refresh
Hi there, Friends! Could your front porch or entry use a little love? Come see how I refreshed mine with a stencil and a little paint…
My small front porch has been long overdue for some attention. The faded concrete stain had become an eyesore that was resistant to power washing, but I came up with a solution for a pretty porch refresh.
After power washing the area, I painted the steps and entry with gray porch paint, but if your steps only need cleaning you can skip painting them before stenciling.
Start by taping the stencil to the step with painter’s tape.

The Hello stencil adds a little something extra to the steps and it's a fun way to greet guests as they approach the front entry. Find a stencil here!
Next, use outdoor craft paint and a stiff brush to stencil the letters. (If you’re wondering how well the paint lasts, I stenciled the step over a year ago and it hasn’t faded a bit!
To complete my summer porch refresh, I added hardy vinca plants because they can take the Texas heat and will continue to bloom until fall, AND the deer don’t eat them!
