I not too long ago spent every week in Louisiana with my sister and brother-in-law, Renee and Bruce, at their new lake home. It was one yr in the past that they moved of their new dream dwelling on the lake and it’s at all times enjoyable to return for a go to. I received there simply in time to see a challenge come to fruition, as that they had tile put in on their back and front porches. It turned out so fairly, so in fact I wished to share this challenge with you all. Including black and white tile to a concrete porch actually makes an affect as you will note under.
I had talked about final yr that they have been planning to do that and it lastly occurred. They’ve a tile man they work with, Billy with and he and his crew did the set up in about 3 days. It was grouted and completed and we waited just a few days (as instructed) earlier than we cleaned it off with water after which put the furnishings again in place. What a distinction this tile makes within the look of their porch! I did a full porch and pool tour final yr with all of the furnishings in place, however this completely kicks it up a notch.
They added a pleasant metallic band to the tile to cowl the perimeters. I don’t have the identify of this tile, however they’re 24×24″ sq. porcelain tiles which might be rated for outside use. They bought them from a neighborhood store in Covington, known as Noel Maestri’s Flooring.
The tiles have a matte end with a little bit of texture to them and really feel nice underfoot. They need to be simple to maintain clear and will be strain washed and hosed off. I simply love this look a lot!
I wished to point out you the completed ground after which after we introduced the furnishings again.
The views from this porch are excellent. It was extremely popular after I first received there, over 100 levels and it felt like an oven outdoors. They did get some a lot wanted rain whereas I used to be there however it didn’t cool issues off that a lot.
A pair days earlier than I left, we cleaned the porch and introduced all of the furnishings again, including just a few equipment to finish the look. That baker’s rack you see was saved on the dock whereas the tile was being completed. They’d a vicious storm blow via in the future and it blew 2 items of glass out of the rack, so she should get extra lower for it. They’ll have some dangerous storms down in Louisiana.
They’re nonetheless joyful to have all this furnishings that we spray painted and repurposed final yr and it’s all nonetheless going robust. Most of this got here from Fb Market. Try this put up for all the main points on spray portray wicker.
