Haint Blue Porch Ceilings

Haint Blue Porch Ceiling, 16 x 8

There's a story behind those blue porch ceilings in Charleston. If I've got my information correct, the color is called "Haint Blue" and a haint is a spirit or ghost... and in Charleston, a lot of folks paint the ceilings of their porches to ward off evil spirits. I've also heard that it's a good color to keep bugs away :) Either way, I love the blue ceilings on the porches.
