Type of paint to use for enclosed breezeway

Momma_Bird_OHMay 16, 2002

I need to paint my enclosed breezeway & bought exterior house paint. Now I'm afraid, after reading the posts about exterior house paint smelling bad, and one post said "never use exterior paint indoors". The breezeway is fully enclosed but not heated. It's kind of indoors, kind of outdoors. Should I use interior paint for it? It feels sort of damp on humid days due to being enclosed, so should I use bathroom paint?

It really doesn't matter too much. What kind of paint did you buy? Oil or latex? Go ahead and paint. Your paint will stand up as long, if not longer than interior paint. If oil, you'll get an aroma (which I happen to like!) and it will take longer to dry.

Momma Bird!
DO NOT listen to anyone who tells you paint is paint and it does not make a difference. I thought that until my hideous experience with expterior latex. Get an oil based primer and then find a no odor paint (they make these and I'll give you 10 guesses why) to use as the final coat.
Best of Luck.
