Looking for any suggestions?
You will need to use a concrete sealer or primer first. Then paint with masonry paint, Tammie.
thank you so much
Here's the same info that Ann suggested with a few other tips!
Awesome info, thanks
I painted mine with cement floor paint and you can find that at the Hardware Store
Tammie..I paint my blocks with Kitz primer than my paint. It's been several years and still looks really good.
We painted our concrete patio and it looks amazing. We used a Benjamin Moore paint. Here's the post you can peek at if you like. https://www.exquisitelyunremarkable.com/2018/08/how-to-paint-concrete-patio-makeover.html
Here is a helpful video to get you started: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YA4X21X2B0
I would paint it very similar to a wall with a roller and paint brush. However, I would ensure that the cement wall was clean and all debris was removed first. Using a primer like Kilz will help seal and block any smells or stains prior to painting.
I would recommend this Red Gard if there is any significant moisture down there https://amzn.to/2Sensea
then you can paint over that if you don't like the color.
Prep first: clean it using products sold for cement blocks (at your local hardware store).
Prime it: use a primer like Kilz to prime it and block odor and stains
Paint: paint it however you'd like!
