Get Creative with Your Floors

You’ll be the talk of the town when you step out of your decorating box and paint your floor a crazy design.  Get creative by adding a stenciled pattern or create stripes in multiple colors. It will give your porch an entirely different perspective …and what a great conversation starter!

Do You Believe in Superstition?

There are different views and reasons to explore why porch ceiling are painted blue.  Some say it gives a calming effect to its visitors, some say it repels bees, but our favorite comes from the Gullah culture in South Carolina that says it keeps evil spirits from invading your home.

Whatever the reason we just love the color. Don’t you agree?

Stand Out from the Crowd

Turn the head of a passerby when you go bold and paint your front door a bright color. It’s an excellent way to make a small porch stand out and adds great curb appeal. This one simple project can add the most drama to your summer porch.
