Once we power washed everything we than filled in the cracks. We bought the cement filler at Lowes, but any home improvement store would carry it.
After the primer dried we painted the patio Valspar Porch and Floor Oil paint. The color is called Chowder. This color was used to make the colors of the lines. On a side note, make sure you use a roller brush that is made specially for cement. The cement roller brush will make your life a lot easier in the long run.
After the paint dried we taped the section into 16" X 16" squares. We left about 8" of the chowder color for the border. We used 1" Frog Tape to tape off our lines.
After the patio was all taped down we painted the entire patio with the second color called, Rusted Earth Valspar Porch and Oil Paint.
Now, for the part you have all been waiting for. We pulled off the tape after 24 hours of drying and had this as our end result.
I think it makes the patio look so much bigger and inviting. Now, I just have to fill it with patio furniture. I am hoping someday that we will be able to build a pergola over the patio. We hardly have any trees and the extra shade would be nice.
