Thanks! It ended up being 4 coats in the end with the first two being watered down. I'm not sure of the exact dilution but it was enough to get it through the little electric sprayer I bought, then the final two coats were straight on.

Those grey blocks were horrendous to paint, If i'm honest they still aren't perfect but I was running out of time and luckily the shelves and the workbench / tool board hide the worst areas where some grey "spots" could possibly be seen. in comparison the red brick and the plaster ceiling could have just had 2/3 coats.

I found it was fine, I must admit i've not used any other masonry paint as this is my first garage, but it went on pretty easy, it diluted with water ok for the first couple of coats and it was cheap, i'd use it again.

Obviously I can't comment on it's weatherproofing as it's inside but it's sealed the brick nicely and I'm not coming in to find a super dusty car anymore!

Very minor update, I finally took the time to organise my tower drawers, got the label maker out for extra organisation points...

Hi Mate, looks good!

Where did you get the black tool board(s) bud?
