My house is made of cement cinder block. The shower is in bad need of a paint job. Is there a certain kind of paint that would be good on it since it is a wet place? I really don't want it to be white if possible. Does anyone have any ideas for me?

So are you saying that the inside of your shower is cinder block and is painted?

If it is painted do you know what type of paint is on it now?

Yes the inside is cinder block and it is painted with latex interior paint and is peeling bad. Would an oil based paint withstand all the moisture?

Well the first thing you need to do is remove all the paint inside the shower and start over as this paint job is only going to be as ggod as what is on the wall now.

The first paint that comes to mind on this is pool paint as it is made to take all the moisture that you will have in a shower. The best is an epoxy at holding up. Your local paint store should be able to help you out on this. The colors are limited and not all can be tinted to other colors but the store will be able to tell you this as well.

Great!! Good idea. I never thought of that, that kind of paint that is, I knew I was going to have to get rid of the existing paint but I was stumped on what kind of paint to use. Thanks
