Front steps

Boy, were my front steps a mess

They were red 15 years ago when we moved in

I painted them about 6 years ago

They looked cute, with the faux brick




Fast forward to last week-

what a mess

mildew-
dirt -
paint chips-
arghhhhhh



-
So, I borrowed my sis' power washer-
Great little tool but not the most powerful

6 hours later, this is how they looked


Now that the rain has stopped,
today is painting day-

I used Behr outdoor porch paint
 in a creamy beige-

It looks so clean now-
yea, I love it!!

Can't wait to start dressing up
the front steps for fall!!!!

Take care, gotta fly - Claire
