Painting sash windows...

One of the biggest problems when you're working on sash windows is painting the damn things and not having them stick, in the process pulling out all the draught-proofing.

I used to use Dulux 30-minute paint, but it was only available in white. Have since discovered B&Q's own range of 'quick drying' paint, which is available in a range of colours. Says it's touch-dry in 4 hours, but I've painted the one I've made for the study and it was touch-dry in an hour and a half!

Goes on a bit thick, though, and the gloss finish comes out more like a satin finish, but I've never liked a high gloss finish anyway and it's totally out of character on an old building.

Good price as well.
