We have to pick a porch *ceiling* color? August 15, 2006

Some reasons

  1. looks like sky
  2. reflects light
  3. keeps bugs away
  4. keeps evil spirits away

Don’t think a blue ceiling is in our porches future…but we’re breaking ground tomorrow *wink, wink*

I am painting the porch ceiling of my late 1920’s small stucco bungalo this weekend. I am painting it to sell it, and a friend of mine told me about the sky blue thing. The porch is the best thing about this house, and I’m going to do the sky blue thing. At least it will be a good story. Though anyone who reads this will crave a functional house that is in the less than $40,000 range, as Mason City, Iowa seems to be the least expensive place in the US to buy a house. And at that price it will be tricked out!
