    I know an exciting subject for a Saturday but I am struggling to find a paint for these boards.I have a 40 ft fence with prepainted (cream) boards and now at the top of the garden I have about 6 ft which are not finished in the same colour.Trouble is they are already secured and it would be a pain to get them out.Anyone know if any of the main DIY chains stock this paint?

    what boards? :eek:

    why? what happened?

    What paint? :eek:

    But seriously, is an exact match in the garden a necessity? If so, get some more paint and paint them all the same?

    no need to be like that... not everyone in the world has 'come across' rock faced gravel boards... and my question as to why some panels are a different colour, is valid, plus, painting them all a uniform colour of your choice is also valid... i was seriously trying to help.

    you can use masonry paint on concrete gravel boards

    assuming it is a water-based one like Dulux, thin the first coat (or two) with water as directed on the tub, so that it soaks in and satisfies the absorbency
