Painted Top to BottomFor inexpensive upgrades to the porch's plywood ceiling and concrete floor, Calder brought on the color by giving the ceiling a coat of classic "haint blue" and the floor a bold cabana-stripe pattern. She also swapped the exterior's yellow-and-cream scheme for a fresher pairing of warm grays. Wide stripes of gray floor paint in alternating shades give the porch's concrete floor the look of a flat-weave rug. Love it? Get it! Siding paint: Fawn Brindle (7640)
We painted our mudroom/kitchen floors and our laundry room floors not long after we moved in almost a year ago and they've held up surprisingly well! Occasionally we'll get a scratch or a ding that's bad enough to warrant pulling out the oil-based paint for a touch up, but that's only happened a couple of times. I used Glidden Porch and Floor paint in gloss for the kitchen and mudroom and I like that one best. I usually just get it color matched.
