Well, if you know me, you know I love painted wood! We painted the floors in our girl’s room.
We painted the wood walls in our guest bathroom.
And we painted the wood floor in our new mudroom.
So when we installed our new wood front porch floor, I thought about staining it for a brief second, but I kind of knew already that my heart was set on painting it. :)
Our first coat was actually the same color as the mudroom (which I love,) but I knew that I wanted it to be a little darker gray. When the sun hit the porch, the gray almost looked blue.
So I decided to go with a color that was a couple shades lighter than the color we painted our shutters (Ebony Fields.) See below…
Since I am far from home right now, I didn’t have the color swatch with me, but I found a picture on Jenna Sue’s blog! Yay!
It is called Mark Twain House Ombra Gray, and I absolutely LOVE it! We used Valspar Porch and Floor Paint in gloss.
We trimmed everything out with just a high gloss exterior white paint.
I still have to get a pretty “welcome” rug for the front door, but I already love how it looks with our pumpkin and mum! :)
Have a blessed day, friends!!
