I finally got around to painting my charity shop shelves that I bought ages ago, I actually have two of these, but I painted the first one using an oil based paint and it didn't turn out very well so that one is waiting to be stripped back and done again.
With this unit, on the recommendation of a friend I used Farrow and Ball Eggshell paint in All White, and the end result is fair better then the oil based paint and a lot easier to work with. The drying time is far quicker too which is great as I don't really have time to wait for paint to dry. I can highly recommend thisFarrow and Ball paint for painting furniture, and I'm very pleased with the result.
