    Hi friends :vs_wave: We're painting over cured veneer plaster and have been getting a lot of conflicting advice. The plasterer says just use any paint w/primer in one and it'll be fine as long as we wait 2 weeks for the plaster to cure. The paint store says you MUST use an acrylic, alkaline...

Then I realized that I have no idea where this stuff is actually sold and maybe I should do some research before I put it on my walls, in case it is terrible. I cannot figure out where...

    We are planning on painting the aluminum siding on our house. It has never been painted before, what is on it is what came on it from the factory. On the sides of the house that get the hot sun the paint is chipping off. We have power washed already. On the sides where the paint was chipping off...

    I bought a new condo, and it has a few fairly ugly walls in dark colors. Plus, whoever painted it did a fairly sloppy job, there's base coat dribbled all over the trim and so forth. I'm on a budget, and I have gift card thingies for both Ace and Lowes. I wanted to paint the walls one color (a...
