How I turned an ugly concrete slab into a faux stone patio
Hi everyone, today I am reposting one of my very first blog posts from 4 years ago. (Wow, where did the time go?!)
I've had a major case of bloggers block this past week, and since I couldn't come up with any ideas for new things to write about, I thought I'd share with you one of my most visited entries, since most of you probably have not seen it.
Still waiting on spring here, but it does help to look back at photos of our yard and my gardens!
So, here is my faux stone patio, hope you enjoy!!
I wish that I had a before picture of the bench. It was unpainted, weathered and very tired looking! I mixed up a few colors of paint we had on hand til I came up with a shade that I liked. Isn't it amazing what paint can do! I then "accessorized" with a few plants and garage sale finds. I can hardly believe that this is the same piece of concrete! Now I can't wait to faux finish something else!
