My new porch ceiling - Thanks Funcolors!

DH finally got up the new porch ceiling, painted in a gorgeous Ohio Haint Blue, using the formula created by Funcolors on her trip to a house in Dresden, Ohio.

We added our new ceiling lights to match those on the garage. We couldn't afford the porch lights after paying for the other onion lights on the outside when we built 15 years ago, but we used the same Massachusetts company who made our lights back then. So happy they're still in business!

Anyway.... I love it, so wanted to give a shout-out to Funcolors.

Dee...gorgeous color and wonderful light ! I love my Haint Blue ceiling also and had fc to thank for her suggestions when I was doing mine. I had the benefit of finding the original color under the newer paint. Yours looks splendid . c

Holy cow! The real star is the beautiful job - the finish looks flawless and the fixture is perfection! TY for sharing pix, Dee. (hugs)

Trailrunner sent me an actual piece of her original haint blue painted porch ceiling. It's sitting in my pencil cup 'cuz it's pretty and I like it. :)

Nothing like a porch and to have one with a ceiling as pretty as that! Just lovely.

How wonderful! It looks gorgeous against your soft yellow siding. We have a "haint blue" ceiling on our covered rear terrace and love it. We have v-groove boards...it looks very similar to yours. Is yours beadboard? It looks wider than most beadboard, almost as wide as our boards. It looks really gorgeous! I know you must be so happy!

Gorgeous ceiling!

Thank you all for such kind words. And, honestly, this is just one of the projects inspired by the greatness that is Gardenweb!

ksoxgirl: The company is Newstamp; I had thought it was Sandwich Lantern until I found the original catalog. There are 2 on the porch, one on each side. I wanted 3 but DH is 6'4", DS is 6'5", and it would have compromised their headroom.

tuesday: Thanks for asking about the floor. We are still getting things back in place. Unfortunately, DH moved a large piece into the family room and scuffed the floor. We then hired movers to move everything else back in ($145 for 1 hour's work...stupid at our age not to do it when we moved things out).

Funcolors: I repeated your compliment to DH, who said, "Don't look at it too closely". But, he grinned and I know it made him feel good.

Thanks you for taking the time to compliment my ceiling: bronwynsmom, flyleft, bestyears, lolauren, arapho, mary_ruth, graywings, cat_mom, gssciencechick.

trailrunner: I remember your porch and how beautiful it is. This will be the original haint blue for our home for some future homeowner!

nini: Yes, it's beadboard. ( I guess, but I'm not sure what v-groom is) We also have beadboard in the cathedral ceiling of our sunroom. I've been eyeing that, too....

You all made my day!
