Painting cast iron pipe that is already black
 
Hi

SO we have a cast pipe in a room, it will be removed soon, however at the moment its black (some sort of paint already on it, its gloss), i need to paint this to "blend in" to the room as we removed the box (doing the walls).

Whats the best paint to use or will any wall paint do?

Many Thanks
Ashley

If the pipe will be removed soon, just give it a quick sanding, dust it off and put whatever wall paint on it that is currently on the walls. If any rust spot prime with oil primer, spray can or brush.
