    Default should I paint this??

    This is the front of our house - yep pretty crappy looking - the contractor couldn't even be bothered to finish painting the cement - anyway eventually we will face this with something - I want Moss rock and Bruce wants Z brick. In the mean time - Bruce asked me if I thought I could paint it so that it looks finished (from the street) with faux rock or brick. What do you think?? I have patio paints that resist weather - Do you think that it might look nice? It is 80' long by 8' high - a lot of work if it will just look bad...

    kimmee, you can buy paint for cement at Lowe's and Home Depot. I think I would just paint it flat for now until you deceide on what to do permanently.

    I think it would look great if you did kimmee. Concrete paint works great just be sure to seal it if you like the results.

    Go for it girl! If you don't like it, you can always do something else in time. At least you will know its finished and can have the satisfaction of knowing you did it.
