    Default Paint

    I'm using an existing cupboard as a groom this time and the walls are a bit ropey so was thinking of painting them. I wondered if there was a paint of choice for such things. I wont use silk as it's shiney so could create hotspots? So just normal matt emulsion I'm thinking, smell should be gone soonish.

    Any ideas on this would be appreciated.

    I painted mine with matt white emulsion

    I do have some white sheeting that come off my last grow room, I bought it without doing much research, should've got tent. I might clean it up and see how that looks, I could probably wedge it in without having to staple or drill (don't have stapler but will look, it's all money).

    Thanks Cleargreen

    Yeah tell me about it, all the small things needed for any DIY project quickly add up.
    You don't have a tool library or anything in your area to borrow a stapler/tacker? I hear those are all the rage now

    If your wanting an ‘shiny’ finish... Vinyl Silk will be good enough ...... matt is matt, dull finish.

    Trust me that’ll do ya. This is my Painting & Decorating coming out of me

    bit of proof i do it for a living....

    Cheers Ice.

    So I cut up what I had and just wedged it in to see how it looks, with a few fastenings I think it might do, got a bit more to patch up with.
