Washington, DC

via Farmhouse on Boone

“Dear PoPville,

Has anyone added wood and painted your concrete front porch steps?

I’m considering either DIY or hiring (if anyone has recs) to do something like the above. I noticed most DC townhomes like mine don’t have as much width/space on the steps as a lot of these guides for wood to fit, however.

Any recs on personal contractors, your own work, or houses you’ve seen would be helpful! I have a brick walkway to boring grey steps/black metal rail, and a wood front porch. My lazy backup is to paint the steps white with a grey or black stripe.”
