I tried to paint a pattern onto my patio. Without the aid of a stencil, the result was horrible. Neighbors were kind enough not to comment on the disaster.
Over a year later, the patio was filthy and the bad paint job was still there. Yesterday's visit from a Charlottesville shelter magazine inspired me to get the porch back to normal. First, I swept and scrubbed. That didn't do much.
Then I used something along the lines of OxyClean that I picked up at the Blue Ridge EcoShop a while back.

With a bit of elbow grease and some concrete paint, I had it looking like this within a few hours:
Clean slate! Now what? Should I leave it like this or go to Sunny's and get a fun stencil for the center?
