Blue Porch Ceilings

Posted on

I have always loved blue ceilings on porches.  My neighbor recently had her front porch ceiling painted and it looks beautiful! (I will have to get a picture for you.)  Apparently there are reasons people paint their porch ceilings blue, besides the obvious – IT LOOKS BEAUTIFUL!  It is thought that blue ceilings keep “spirits” away as well as bugs.  Wonderful!  I don’t like spirits or bugs!  

Here’s a website that explains the history of “haint” blue.  That’s the specific color used to keep unwanted creeps and critters.  My lovely, generous neighbor gave me her left over “Rain” paint she used on her porch ceiling so now my porch ceiling is painted!  Woohoo.  And it was painted while I’m on vacation!  Just like magic!   Leave my bro and the paint at home and I have a new ceiling!  Aren’t vacations brothers great?!
