    Hello, I hope someone can offer me some advice.

    I have recently had a bath panel put in just made out of wood (not a panel specially made for baths, but a piece of wood cut to size). I now need to paint it white to fit in with the rest of the bathroom but it also needs to be waterproof as already as I'm using the shower its starting to get a bit wet. I had a look in B&Q today at all the paints and thought about getting a gloss for exterior wood as this must be waterproof but it said on all the tins that was for exterior use only.

    Anyone help me on what I should type of paint/treatment I should use?

    thanks.
