Masonry paint indoor mistake

I have rather regretfully painted the walls (OSB) of a garden office with Dulux exterior weather shield masonry paint on the advice it would be fine.

I now have a smelly office which is rather annoying. I believe it’s the biocides in the paint that is the smell. I’ve painted over it with an interior matt emulsion paint since (for colour change) but smell is still bad.

I’ve read it’s not really a health issue unless you have respiratory issues but the smell is too annoying.

I expect it will wear off.

I remember not so long ago, crown I think it was, or maybe Dulux had real problems with their interior paint smelling bad, so dont feel to bad :)

In the meantime, buy a yankee candle :mrgreen:
