Hi everyone :)

Next week, I'm planning on painting this wall. It's certainly seen better days.

It's the internal wall of our garage.

I was wondering what paint/filler I should use.

I had been considering Masonry paint, but read somewhere that this can be harmful and so should not be used on internal walls? If so, what would be the best alternative?

I'm quite keen to go for a blue/grey colour. Any brand recommendations welcome.

For my garage I used ordinary white emulsion. It took a couple of coats from bare brick and I wasn’t concerned with floor splashes as I used floor paint afterwards.
i don’t know about your colour choice but white made my garage a pleasure to work in (with added lights) compared to the bare brick and 60w tungsten lamp.
