Taniya Nayak: You know you never get a second chance to make a first impression and that’s why your entry way is so important. I’m using two colors of concrete paint to create full terracotta tile and I’m arranging an intimate sitting area. I’m going to show you how to take your slop from drop to top; I’ll do it all in half a day and for under a $100. This fun court is going to be the talk of the town. The most important step before I paint the concrete to slept, I need a nice clean surface. Since I’m just painting the landing area within the lines of the concrete I’m taping it off so that the paint doesn’t go outside and save nice and contain. I’m lucky enough to have a great already set in place but if you don’t have one taping it off creates the illusion of the grout line in this case I’m still taping it off to create the grout line illusion as well as keeping the paint from falling within the crafts. I’m using a one inch tape so that my grout line looks natural, when you tape off the grid make sure it space out evenly on both sides, that way when you pull it up you will have a nice even grout line. Here comes the fun part, the paint. I choose a brick red color it’s going to brighten up this entire patio; this is just the first coat. I’m using a concrete paint that is specifically design to go on concrete and to withstand whether an outdoors. I’m intentionally not putting too much paint on the roller I want to make sure that the tape doesn’t get any paint underneath it so do nice light even coat. I’m going for a terracotta tile look here so I use a brick red, you can use just about anything if you want to do beige that would be a nice beautiful palette. I’ve just finish my last square and I could leave it like this one coat of paint and make it look like red tile but I want the texture effect so I’m going to use the darker paint and double it on with the sponge. This process of ball finishing is taking some simple clay looking tile and making it extraordinary. Sponging is a really easy process; there is no right to wrong. I’m just dubbing randomly around to give it texture, you’ve seen large tile like this before at the store and they can run any where from 10 to 20 even $30 a tile by painting it where spending about the much for the entire surface. I choose a dark brown as great color because it looks live stone. This is what’s giving me the texture of effect right on top of my adobe plate color. Here comes the fun part, pulling the tape reveals the natural concrete which actually looks like grout lines, next step I’m making the porch even more welcoming by rearranging the furniture that was already here I’ve created a more intimate setting. Then I’m topping the sits with nicely pillows and adding a pop of green with the live plant. As far as first impression go this one porch was empty and uninviting but with some creative concrete paint and some inspired furniture staging I took this front porch from keep on looking to place come in and I did it all for less than a $100 and in half a day.
