No matter how hard we tried to keep the front porch ceiling area clean, there always seemed to be a constant nest living there. We have pressure washed, used bug spray, chemicals, etc. and nothing really seemed to work. But then one day while pinning, I came across an alternative for preventing insects AND a short DIY project. ;)

I headed to the local department store to grab some "haint blue" paint. Why haint blue you ask?! I came across several reasons online and here they are!


REASONS TO PAINT YOUR PORCH OR PATIO CEILING BLUE

  • repels insects

  • prevents birds

  • brings good luck

  • keeps evil spirits (haints) away

  • it's a southern thing

  • & it just looks better! :)

This is an easy DIY project that most people should be able to complete within a day. (Unless you're fancy and have a ginormous front porch... then it may take more than a day ;) )
