Re: Before and After House Flip north coast NSW

Looks great. We painted our cupboards in the caravan with Whisper White. It's very popular for indoors.

Love that island and hoping to install one similar in my house, did you make this or did you buy it from somewhere?

Re: Before and after cottage makeover

Hi @livinthemallee 
We always use flat to wash n wear type finish to paint on gyprock walls.

We use semi- gloss on all skirtings/architraves/wardrobe doors.

We use semi- gloss on internal rendered walls, as it actually hides lumps and bumps better than flat.

We use exterior paints on the exterior which are labelled as 'low sheen' but have a bit more shine in them than low sheen interior paints example Taubmans low sheen exterior paint.

We use exterior paint in a semi-gloss or gloss (depending on the brand) for exterior posts and railings

The island in the kitchen was a custom build.

Thanks for the info. We ended up buying low sheen dulux for walls and gloss for trims. . Not really worried about showing imperfections. She's about 80 ,weatherboards still good. 😁
