    Got magnolia/yellow wall at back of house (size is 20ft long and 6ft high)
    would like it green to go with fence on other side ?!
    what should I use to paint as I cant find a masonary green ?
    Tried woodstain over top that I used on fence ! but would take a week to eventually cover the magnolia/yellow cover ?!!!!!!

    if you go to a large paint dealer or DIY shed with a paint department, they can mix you up Masonry paint in any colour you desire

    It will be more expensive than readimixed colours though.

    If you have used a Fence Stain already, it will have left a waxy coating that prevents paint sticking to it. It will wear off in four or five years time.

    Why not have it 2 tone :?: Dark green @ the bottom and magnolia on the top ..small black line between the 2 . I used to live in a Very Big House painted like that.
