Get the ‘green’ look

Home Paint It - - ADVICE -

My en-suite shower des­per­ately needs up­dat­ing and I re­ally fancy the ‘green’ bath­room on page 35 of your Septem­ber 2013 is­sue. What kind of plas­ter and paint should I use to get this ecofriendly look?

Er­win van der Weerd replies The bath­room fea­tured in this Grey­ton home re­ally is unique with its grey walls and ‘leather look’. First of all, it’s im­por­tant to note that you can’t use a reg­u­lar skim for the walls in the shower be­cause it doesn’t like wa­ter! We used ce­ment-based plas­ter for the shower wall and then painted all the walls with Leather paint from Mi­das, in­clud­ing a spe­cial base coat fol­lowed by two coats of the fi­nal colour. The look is re­ally not at­trac­tive dur­ing the process, but as soon as the nat­u­ral wax from Mi­das is ap­plied, it trans­forms into the beau­ti­ful end re­sult. In the shower, we also ap­plied a sealer from Mi­das to make it wa­ter­tight. >>
