Faux Cement Tiled Front Porch (With Stencils!)

Transform a basic cement pad patio with the help of cement paint and stencils. The result is a unique cement porch that looks like you used expensive cement tiles.

To prep the cement I used a scraper to remove old peeling paint and then I prepared the cement for paint by etching. I used an all in one product that removed grease and etches at the same time.
