Well the porch was finished when I got home today and glistening in the sunlight. I hadn't even made it out of my car before the neighbours arrived 'ooohing' and 'arghing' over it's beauty! It's impossible to capture it in a picture, but when the sun hits it, the epoxy in it literally sparkles and glistens - it's just gorgeous!
We nearly went with a lighter more reddish shade for the main part and now we are so glad we went with a greater contrast. It has totally transformed our front porch and will last for years. My neighbour informed me the proper name for this treatment is 'Set in Stone' and I think they maybe future customers too. Anyway we are delighted with the end result and our 'new' porch.
