White Washing & Distressing Porch Floor!
I'm doing a makeover on my screen porch and I'm doing it on a shoestring budget! The screen porch was built last year over a part of our existing deck and the floors were less than pretty. When pricing everything I wanted to do on the porch with almost no money, I decided to stain the floors in a semi-transparent white. When I got the stain on, I wasn't thrilled so I experimented with wiping a little of the stain off to give them a distressed look. Here's what I came up with! This isn't for everybody, some of you guys might not like it-I understand, but I'm happy and I spent only $33.00 at Home Depot for the stain!

Tamara McMillan on Mar 02, 2016Very nice!
Sophie Gross on Mar 21, 2016i love it and is exactly what I was planning for my porch this summer. Good thing I saw your post because I was going to white wash with paint. I never thought about using stain, I think it may be more durable than paint. Looks awesome! Thanks for sharing
Hi, can you tell me the brand and which color white you used. There are many at home depot to choose from. Thank you!
