    Personally, we like the look of the weathered gray ipe, otherwise it is an ongoing maintenance problem. If you want to refinish it, we would use a clear finish, not a stain.

    How do you maintain the rich, dark, original color of the Ipe? I want to use Ipe for a covered screened porch in GA and am concerned about the graying/maintenance? Or would that not be an issue because it would be less exposed to the elements?

        Charleston green paint and a small act of rebellion. A green so deep that it appears in many lights to be black is a popular color for exterior trim and outdoor furniture in Charleston and beyond. Legend has it that the U.S. government sent gallons of basic black paint to help the city rebuild after the Civil War, but rather than use it as it was, the proud residents added a touch of yellow or green to make it their own. The formulas vary, but most paint companies offer a version of Charleston green. Sherwin-Williams, for example, offers Greenblack.On this porch, Charleston green paint coats the shutters and handrail. The ceiling, handrail and two-by-two pickets are cypress, a wood native to the Southeast that’s moisture- and insect-resistant. The floor is tongue-and-groove ipe. 8 Rot-Resistant Woods for Your Outdoor Projects

        Here's a close-up of the Lowcountry porch, complete with lovely railings, traditional shutters, windows with transoms, lovely lighting, plants and beautiful wood underfoot and overhead. One of the best ways to make sure your porch is at its most welcoming is to add plenty of comfortable rocking chairs.

        This long porch benefits from the structural repetition on the right and the windows on the left. Each helps break down the space, and the structural bays help define smaller areas for seating.

        Set out extra rockers or wicker furniture. For geographies with bugs, line up citronella candles and a small fan.
