    The price of Paint here!

    WOW!:shocked:We just viewed a good solid house with a view to buying it as a Do'er upper,coz it's in a good area and a great price on big land.Any'ow,it needs painting from top to bottom ,inside and out,after doing other jobs.Now the big problem here is that paint is about 50 to 60 dollars a tin for 4 litres(or more) And i wont be happy unless 2 or 3 coats are applied,especially on the gaudy old dark colours.Looks like our loan(if we go for it)will have to increase significantly!:wink:Also,have the Aussies never heard of Varnish and interior wood stain?How i yearn for me old 10 litre of Crown Emulsion from B and Q,for a tenner,or a Glynn Webb discount warehouse!'Avin a laugh they am.:yes:

  20. I know this might sound like a barmy question, but can anyone tell me if there is Dulux & Crown paint in Australia? The only reason I'm asking is I've just decorated a room here in the UK and I LOVE it!!!! It's a Dulux make....I love it that much that if they don't have Dulux or Crown paint in Oz (we're moving to QLD) then I'm going to put a couple of tins in our container and get it shipped over with the rest of our stuff!! ha ha. It matches my furniture beautifully :yes: Hope you can help Jenny x x x x x

    Taking tins of paint!

    Has anyone taken tins of paint in their container - if so, did they survive the journey intact? I enjoy painting old furniture and like to use Farrow & Ball paints here in the UK. Unfortunately these are not available in Australia but I have been in touch with the shippers and we can take them as we have sole use of a container and the paint is water based eggshell) - I am just wondering how best they can be packed so they don't burst open and spread everywhere as we would have to pay for any paint damage to the container....... Weird request I know but any advice would be helpful, cheers Cheryl (The Picketts)
