Here's to aging homes!
You know why? Because you can wake up one morning and decide to paint kois fish on your back porch, without worrying whether or not you'll mess up the fresh cement.
I've definitely found that I have gotten more creative with my projects now that my house is nearing the big 3-oh. Fun stuff.
Here's my how-to:
I drew a template of my fish on plain white paper (the fish closest to the paint can is my pattern. ) I used chalk to outline them onto cement.
I painted the fish with Kilz, (white paint could be used) in a swimming pattern.
I used left over, latex paint(remember the orange bathroom?) to paint the details onto my kois in little dots, lines and patches.
And voila'! Three happy, good luck charms swimming from my back porch door toward the pool deck.
So, here's to aging, cracked back porches with a little character to boot~
