    Any builders or plasterers?

    While my parents are away, and before our MGB arrives back, I wanted to make a start on tidying the garage up and painting the walls inside. At the moment the walls are, and have been for the past 28years, bare breeze block and cement, which doesnt look to nice.

    What are the options to 'tidying up' the walls. Dont want to plaster board and skim them, is there something i could paint on to hide everything? Somebody mentioned something about a 'cement mix' that could be put on and then painted over.

    Any advice would be great.

    Depends what you're after - how about just some normal masonry paint?

    As b3n said, what your looking for is a render but then you could just splash on some of this easy clean paint.
