|Thread: High Paint Costs|
a lot of good comments and no wild stuff.
I work for a paint manufacturer (not dulux) and it is true you get what you pay for, and some of the stuff is damm expensive due to the R&D and investment in new products and materials used in it to be more eco friendly, a classic example of the acrylic paints now supplied, not as brilliant white as solvent on inital application but it stays whiter for longer whilst the other will yellow over time.
I think i can say 'what is it you need to do with the wood?', i.e. will it be indoors, in the dry, in the damp, outside abused or ornamental. You can use as mentioned above old emulsion leftovers and do work well for a lot of my stuff where i just use to protect it and then paint over with chosen end product. If you want it to last and be outside then some of the wood products available are really good, and they can be a good value as you can go to large chain DIY who will always have offers on for one company or another and lot if it these days comes down to brand loyalty.
just a 2p if it helps
It is for a slightly scaled up version of steve hucks V8

|Thread: Floor Paint|
How a bout a scrubbable matt paint, i know its for the walls but might do you as its pretty damm resiliant, its water based and you can tint it to an awful lot of colours.
