    Which paint to use on garden shed...please help!! 4th Jun 09 at 5:55 PM
    Hi all, We have a wooded garden shed (5 years old), the walls are made from what looks like fence panel type wood not t&g. So it is cheap shed.

    Over the years we stained it with curpernol type stain. But now we want to paint it a solid colour like say grey, deep blue or dark green. The wall panels are a bit scruffy so I want good coverage hence not using a stain as I think the paint will give me the finish I need.

    I don't want to spend loads on specialised paint....the sheds old!!

    Could I use a weathershield masonry paint or would it flake? Or could I primer it with homebase exterior primer and then use a exterior gloss or satinwood? Any help appreciated.........thanks
