Thanks Andy, if I've helped you that's great! Ron, the wash is a good idea but I painted the wall last night and what looked good on the paint chart at the store looked garish on the wall. My wife had suggested a tan color and provided me with a bottle of craft paint from her stash. It was called Trail Tan. I used it and it looks nice. Turns out to be virtually identical to Pollys Aged Concrete, which I had used for the concrete section below the doors. Really couldn't see a difference! So I added white, abit of black and even a touch of yellow to the concrete to distinguish it. Thanks Pete, you overestimate my ability, but I appreciate it!
