it's Ben Moore epoxy modified latex floor and deck paint. there are 3 grays standard in the series, it is the middle dark one. we also use Platinum frequently. one other thing: color is really hard in photos, so many factors change what they look like. We always recommend looking at chips in situ, narrowing it down and putting up a patch 2-4 sq ft and look at it in different lights before committing to the whole project.

I'm not really sure - it's an historic house. they look to be about 8" at the base and tapering to about 6"

It may be an urban myth, but we've also heard several different people say that the blue keeps away the mud daubers - they see the blue as the sky. I don't know enough about the optical physiology of wasps to confirm or deny this. Nice story about the spirits, though, and better than mud daubers.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Enhance what you're already got. "When we bought the house the swing was there, and we just repainted the porch floor and ceiling," says Annie Coggan of Coggan + Crawford Architecture + Design. Both colors are standard Southern porch colors. The blue for the ceiling is traditional and functional since blue repels wasps, or so the lore goes. The gray floor is porch gray, which hides dirt and pollen in the spring."Coggan's favorite color is orange, "so bits of it are always placed about the house we live in, and this chair was a gift from a friend," she says. "This photo was taken in the early fall during harvest season in a rural Southern community, hence the bucket of gourds."
Susan Stieglitz added this to Shiplap
In moderate climates, shiplap can be a good exterior choice. But for more extreme temperatures, a tongue and groove joint would be preferred.Browse more shiplap photos
