Paint. Took me two years to decide on the colors. A friend pointed out that this is English Tudor, not Craftsman. Once I realized that, it became easy.

Stripped and scraped, cleaned with Tri Sodium Phosphate, water rinse, oil base primer, Benjamin Moore low lustre.

Granite steps

Granite steps down to my back yard. The granite was salvaged from an 1850s smokehouse at Granite Hill Plantation in Sparta, GA, and pavers used on the the streets in Atlanta in the 19th century.

Atlanta's original 19th century street pavers.
