Interior Slump Block Wall


Hello all,

Does anyone have ideas on how to paint (decorate) interior exposed slump block walls? I live in the southwest where this material is popular. I have exposed slump in every room, one wall per room. It looks hideous. Any ideas?

My only advice is to get yourself to a paint store (not HD/Lowes/BigBoxCo), and they can hook you up with the appropriate products.

There are special "block surfacers" that prime and provide a proper painting surface, upon which you can apply regular finish paint.

Sherwin Williams carries a line of products with the name "Loxon" meant for blocks, but it is a pretty big product line. The folks at the store should be able to help pick the right product, and provide application advice.
